Banana Avocado Smoothies - Smoothie de Platano con Palta

For over a year I have been venturing into smoothies off and on. It's been a fantastic experience so far, because it has gotten my children to eat more vegetables and eat a wider variety of fruits than they ever did in the past. 

Por mas de un año he estado preprando smoothies para mi familia. Ha sido toda una aventura porque ha ayudado a que mis hijos ahora coman muchos mas vegetales y consuman mucha mas fruta que antes.

Lately, we have been making smoothies 3-4 times a week and my kids are sometimes the ones to request we make it! They help getting the ingredients out of the fridge as well as also suggesting new food combinations.  I especially enjoy making the smoothies because it gives something we can 'cook' together quickly and also because we discuss the vitamin and mineral benefits found in different foods. 

Ultimamente he estado preparando a lo menos 3-4 smoothies a la semana y muchas veces son mis hijos quienes piden que hagamos uno. Ellos me ayudan a buscar los ingredientes del refrigerador y tambien dan sus sugerencias en cuanto a recetas y sabores que les gustaria probar.  A mi me encanta hacer estos smoothies porque nos da una oportunidad de ‘cocinar’ algo juntos en forma rapida y tambien nos ayuda a aprender sobre las vitaminas y minerales que contienen las frutas y verduras que vamos a utilizar.  

A few days ago we made a Banana Avocado smoothie at home.  Normally, we eat the avocado with sandwiches or pasta dishes, but this time we saved one avocado for a smoothie.  It made the smoothie so creamy! 

Hace unos dias preparamos un smoothie de palta (aguacate) con platano en la casa. Normalmente comemos la palta en sandwiches o sino la uso para salsa para pasta, pero esta vez quise probar algo nuevo y lo hicimos en un smoothie. La palta dejo el smoothie mas cremoso y suave. 

Banana Avocado Smoothie
(yields enough for 1-2 glasses - I doubled the recipe for 4 people) 

1 banana
1 avocado 
1 handful of kale 
1/2 cup of almond milk (unsweetened)
***Read note below to find out how to make it sweeter 

Smoothie de Platano con Palta
(rinde suficiente para 1-2 vasos. Dobla la receta para 4 personas)
1 platano
1 palta
una mano llena de col rizada
1/2 taza de leche de almendra (sin endulzante)
***Lee mas abajo para ver como hacer este smoothie mas dulce.

As is, you could replace the kale for spinach and it would just as yummy. If you go with the kale, like I did, you can add an apple to this recipe to make a sweeter smoothie. You see, Kale is a fantastic super food with over 170% vitamin C and it's also very high on vitamin A.  The only downside of kale is that it's more bitter and crunchier.  So I just make sure to compensate with a Gala apple, which is what's available in my fridge right now. 

Tambien se puede reemplazar la col rizada por espinacas y quedaria delicioso. En todo caso, si decides usar la col rizada, agregale una manzana a tu smoothie con cascara (sin pepas!). La col rizada es una super comida que contiene mas de 170% de vitamina C y ademas tiene mucha vitamina A. Definitivamente vale la pena agregarlo al smoothie, aunque sea un poco mas amargo, pero si usas la manzana como te decia...quedara muy dulce y totalmente natural! 

This was a delicious recipe! What smoothies do you make at home? 

Me encanto esta receta. Pruebala y despues me cuentas como te fue.

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands.

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
