Paleo Avocado & Mango Smoothie

Confession: I didn't actually drink one of these, as I can't stand smoothies when it's so cold that my fingers are numb! The kids (who never seem affected by the climate) requested them, however, so I came up with this tasty one.

You honestly can't taste the avocado here, and it really adds creaminess to the texture of the smoothie. Other fruits would work with it as well. A little squirt of lime juice adds a nice tropical kick too!

Paleo Avocado & Mango Smoothie

1 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
3/4 cup water
3/4  cup coconut milk
1/2 ripe avocado
2 tbs. ground flax
juice of 1/2 lime

Combine all ingredients in blender until smooth. Makes one large or 2 kid-sized smoothies.
