Matcha and avocado may sound like a strange combination, especially for a smoothie. However, these really go well together
The first time I came to America and someone offered me guacamole, I was so grossed out. I know, I know, I’ve lived in California for so long, it’s blasphemous to some that I don’t like guacamole. To be fair, I typically don’t like avocado in any savory form. I’ve even only started liking avocado toasts recently.
In the Philippines, where I grew up, we ate avocado more in a sweet sense. Sometimes, we’d even just snack on some chunks of avocado in a bowl with milk, sugar, and ice. When I told my classmates in middle school in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA that I loved avocado smoothies, they were repulsed and looked at me weird. But then again I was the kid who always brought weird-smelling Asian dishes for lunch at school.
So I know that there will be those who read this post and think that avocado smoothie sounds disgusting, but if you keep an open mind, you may be very pleasantly surprised at how much you like it. I would normally just have a plain avocado smoothie, but matcha is such a great complementary flavor to avocado that I thought, why not?
- 2 avocados
- 1 cup oat milk (or any milk you want)
- 1 tsp matcha
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 cup of ice
Mix all the ingredients in a blender. Can't get any easier than that!
I know that this is just for a single serving, I'm usually very terrible at adjusting recipes for more than intended. Especially for this recipe, I usually just eyeball everything if I need to serve more than myself.
Pro-tip: Pair the smoothie with my Sweet and Savory Salmon Sliders and you got yourself a perfect summer meal!
