While I was in North Carolina my friend took me to Tropical Smoothie Cafe and told me that I had to try their Avocolada smoothie. I mean. I am totally obsessed with anything avocado. But an avocado in a smoothie? I couldn’t wait to try!
The avocado added such a smooth and creamy texture to this smoothie. I was instantly hooked! Not to mention it has kale hidden inside as well. This smoothie had better for you ingredients hidden inside and it is amazing.
I became so obsessed with I had it three times while I was there. I have never had anything like it. I even got one on the way to the airport. But here is the problem. There isn’t a Tropical Smoothie Cafe here in Utah. So, I just had to make it myself!
I did find a recipe that tried to recreate the smoothie here. But the recipe was missing a few things including Kale. So with a few things added to it I was able to make this delicious smoothie right at home!
It is seriously the creamiest smoothie that I have ever had. It is absolutely delicious with the avocado added. Then you add some pineapple, coconut, and lime and it is amazing. This is the perfect tropical smoothie to make this summer!
