Avocado Protein Smoothie

I ate half an avocado with dinner last night. I never manage to eat a whole one, and the other half always gets left somewhere in the kitchen, slowly withering away, browning slightly on the outside – alone, unwanted, uneaten…

I was feeling sorry for this avocado, all by its lonesome, not being eaten on my high protein day. I saw it at breakfast, while eating my egg white and cottage cheese omelette, I looked over to it while putting away the dishes, and I began to crave it while making myself tea. My heart breaking in two I didn’t know what to do… technically I was trying to follow Pierre Dukan’s diet and just eat pure protein for a full day, but I just couldn’t let the poor half go to waste – so I did what any foodie would do…

…I put it in a smoothie.

This way my mind remained at ease. I was still able to log a high protein content, but since I was adding fruit into my smoothie I had already broken the “pure protein rule” anyways; adding avocado wouldn’t have changed that so win/win.

IMG_1229I had read about adding avocado into things all over the blogosphere, but hadn’t mustered enough courage to ever try it. The lonely avocado half was a sign that it was meant to be… it was meant to finally happen.. and it was deliciously worth it!

IMG_1230Now that I’ve finally given the “add avocado for creaminess” thing a whirl, and couldn’t even taste it, I’m now ready to add it into things like fudge cake and chocolate mousse.. I’m on a roll 😉
