crookedmegs, perhaps you could quarter the recipe and make one, or halve the recipe and make two (one for the next day) — the avocado would turn brown, though. It's harmless, but certainly less attractive — not sure if that would bother you.

It says it makes 4 servings. If I just drink one cup before work, can I refrigerate the rest for breakfast for three more days, or will it go bad?

Hmmm...I've never tried an avocado smoothie but i do love avocados. I'll have to try this recipe out and add it to this great Healthy Gluten Free Recipe List> http://www.skinnyscoop.com/list/gfpantry/healthy-gluten-free-recipes

This sounds delicious but I'm not sure it contains enough protein to qualify it as a meal. Maybe a scoop of soy powder would help with that. Gorgeous looking smoothie!

Silken tofu is totally different from soft and firm tofus in that it's designed to be blended into drinks, and adds a nice element of body. But that said, if tofu's not your thing, you can also try adding half a cup of yogurt. Or, a scoop of soy or whey protein powder works well, too.

This looks delicious, but the idea of putting tofu in a smoothie grosses me out. Is there an alternative?
