Blessed to be in Kauai celebrating my one year anniversary with my love Marcus. On our second day here we stumbled upon a pretty sweet farmer’s market in Hanalei (Saturday morning 9 am-noon) chalk full of all kinds of tropical fruit. All this tropical bounty begs for a smoothie so I created this avocado, banana, macadamia nut, vanilla soy smoothie sweetened with local honey from a road side organic stop off called Banana Joes. Only takes a few minutes to prepare and leads to organic, creamy, rich deliciousness – great way to start your day or a great afternoon treat too!
1. 1 cup vanilla soymilk (I’ve tried almost every brand and think Silk is the tastiest)
2. 1/4 avocado
3. 1 small banana or 1/2 large bana
4. 3-4 macadamia nuts
5. Optional: A few slices of fresh coconut meat if you can find some- otherwise you can leave this out or substitute with 1 tbsp of dried shredded coconut
6. Honey- drizzle amount to your liking: I do about 1 tbsp
7. 2 ice cubes
Directions: Blend everything together and enjoy – share with your love!
