This Avocado, Cucumber and Flaxseeds smoothie recipe from Charushila Biswas at Style Craze was a true eye opener for me – in many ways! The first time I had it, I was still sleepy as I sat down to get to work. After I drank this, I was wide awake and ready to go! It also made me realize that whether I’m making this recipe or not, I can use avocado to thicken my smoothies in place of commercial almond milk. I like mine thick, but don’t like to use more than ½ cup of almond milk, so I’m glad to have another healthy option.
Note: The recipe does not call for any type of liquid, but I have to add about 8 ounces of water to get it to liquify.
