Vitamina de fruta e de abacate (Fruit Smoothie and Avocado Smoothie)

"Vitamina de fruta" is fruit smoothie: a mix of fruits blended with milk or fruit juice, usually orange juice. Nothing else could be easier, better and more nutritious than "vitamina". You can combine your favorite fruits but just a little sugar is enough, so don’t overdo it! The avocado has a very special taste and I prefer to use it alone for an "avocado smoothie"! 
The "vitamina" may be a very healthy snack or can be served with a sandwich for a quick lunch break.

Ingredients

  • Fruit smoothie with milk:
  • • 1 banana

  • • 300 ml orange juice, approximately

Preparation method

1. Wash very well fruits that cannot be peeled. Peel, pit or de-seed the remaining fruit. 
2. Cut the fruit into small pieces. 
3. Put the fruit in the blender and add a little milk. 
4. Blend on high power until very smooth. Add sugar and milk, until you reach the desired consistency. Blend, taste and add more sugar if necessary. You may pass it through a sieve if you like very smooth texture.
