There's nothing like a smoothie — when made right, it's a healthy meal in a cup. For anyone lactose-intolerant, it can be hard to make a rich and creamy smoothie minus the milk. Once again, avocado to the rescue! Throwing some avocado into a smoothie recipe immediately gives the drink a thick and creamy consistency, much like a milkshake. Get started with our avocado aloe smoothie, or try this spicy basil avocado smoothie instead.
