Awesome Smoothie of the Week – Raw Vegan

by Kristen Suzanne in avocado

This recipe is delectable. I took a vacation from my usual protein-powder-filled and superfood-loaded smoothie staple to switch it up. And, boy, is it amazing. This gorgeous recipe is light with flavors of apple, pear, and vanilla, yet satiating, creamy, and loaded with nutrition from the avocado. And, the ice sets it all off perfectly.

Damn. This is goooooood.
