Avocado is one of those foods that took some coming around to. I’ve read that it takes three tries to transform your tastebuds into liking a new food, a theory I am going to be testing out. I am not sure how many tries it took me to enjoy avocado, but I am glad I did. This creamy, green fruit is a nutritional powerhouse and is a versatile ingredient in the kitchen. It makes a great addition to smoothies, packing it with multiple vitamins and healthy fats while adding a creamy texture. My favourite coffee shop makes a Chai Latte Smoothie that I absolutely love. But my wallet doesn’t like forking out the cash for it on a daily basis so I decided to improvise. While the coffee shop version doesn’t use avocado, my version does, and I can’t even tell the difference. It’s a perfect blend of Chai spices, creamy avocado, cashew cream, garden greens, probiotic yogurt and mango.
