A light and refreshing afternoon snack!

Healthy and delicious, avocado is one of the most versatile fruits. In addition to using it in salads and guacamole, it also tastes great in smoothie form. My friend found this recipe (courtesy of Tastemade) and since we are both avocado lovers, we just had to try it out.
