Marcus Samuelsson's Avocado-Banana Smoothie
Born in Ethiopia and raised in Sweden, Marcus Samuelsson has mastered the art of mixing unusual flavors to create tastes that simply make mouths and stomachs happy. A longtime supporter of charities that help give children a healthy start, such as UNICEF and the World Childhood Foundation, the chef is offering up an avocado-banana smoothie recipe to give kids a quick brain boost before heading off to school. "This is a great healthy breakfast option, as it's filling and nutritious; plus, kids dig the green color of the drink. It's inspired by the Indian drink lassi and is sure to be a family favorite."
