    Cut the avocado and scoop out the pulp. To cut your avocado easily:
    • Take your knife and cut the avocado in half vertically.
    • Twist the two sides apart, exposing the pit inside.
    • With a spoon or a knife, remove the pit.
    • Grab a spoon and scoop out the all of the inside.

    Put the pulp of the avocado (and any other fruits or vegetables) in a blender. If you're using sugar or honey, add it now, too. Give it a quick whirl to get the juices flowing and the flavors combined.
    • For the first recipe (the creamier, richer version), hold off on the milk for right now and just add the sugar. That part comes next.
    • For the second recipe (for the health foodie in you), add all the vegetables and fruits you'd like. Add a couple, give it a taste, maybe add a couple more. Experiment!

    Add the milk, if applicable, bit by bit. You want complete control over the thickness of your drink; should it be more smoothie-like or more like juice? The natural thickness of the avocado opens up the entire spectrum of consistency. Add a small amount, blend it up, and decide whether or not you'd like to add more. Give it a taste test, too!
    • It probably goes without saying that the thicker and richer your milk, the thicker and richer the final taste will be. Whole milk and avocado will be more smoothie-like while almond milk and avocado will be thinner -- and have a completely different taste.

    Finish blending, garnish and serve chilled. Once you've found the right consistency, blend it until everything is combined thoroughly, creating a uniform look throughout. Garnish with whatever your heart desires -- maybe a slice of pineapple or a dollop of whipped cream?

  • The creamy avocado recipe serves 1 person; if you have friends over, get a bag of avocados and quadruple the recipe! Similarly the veggie avocado recipe serves a group. If it's just you, cut down on the ingredients.
