andrew@bytejockeyz.comDrinks, Recipes

If you’ve ever craved dessert that won’t wreck your best healthy eating intentions, there’s a good chance this simple green smoothie is for you. This green smoothie with avocado is creamy and simply dreamy with the addition of sweet Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Figs. We use golden figs to keep the color nice and perky green, but feel free to use Mission Figs instead. While this milkshake alternative is great as a dessert, it also makes a good drink for breakfast, as it’s chock full of fiber, or sip one after working out.
