Avocado Smoothie

>> June 30, 2011

For a load of fiber.

I'm recently following a new breakfast scheme - having a full glass of fruit shake for breakfast every other day. I alternate between having a normal breakfast and then just fruit shake the next day. This scheme seems to work pretty well for me to help me lose some unwanted fats. But just a reminder, if you want to put yourself on a diet, make sure you don't starve yourself. Starvation is never healthy.

If you love your pancakes swimming in syrup, or your bacon and eggs in the morning, try to replace it with fresh fruit shake and a low-fat breakfast cereal. Alternate between your normal breakfast menu and your diet menu - it helps.

So today's fruit shake is avocado smoothie - a tropical fruit that's known to be rich in fiber. It's also packed with carbs so I have the energy I need for my morning tasks.


Ingredients:

- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 cup soy milk
- 1/4 cup honey
- 8 cubes of ice

1. Slice the avocado and scoop out the flesh, discarding the seed.
2. Put everything in a blender and blend. Add more honey if necessary.

Serves 2.

I usually puts oats and fruit in my morning smoothies. I've never tried avocado, it looks really creamy and delicious!

Hey dear thanks for dropping by again :) The oats sounds a good addition to the fruit shake. Oh my, the list of food I will try is piling up. Been extremely busy this month and I really feel guilty #1. Not updating the blog, #2. Hardly cooking dinners/lunch. Hopefully things get back to normal when I get everything figured out for our upcoming wedding. Thanks for the input i promise I will try it :)

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
