Avocado Smoothie

Winter is the time for hardier warming foods, so smoothies are not really it. They are too raw, to yin, too out of season and are not really local. But I had no other choice. I needed something that can go down easy after my oral surgery and a rather involuntary 20 hour fast. I decided on a smoothie for breakfast. To balance out all that raw yin, I chose to complement it with poached eggs. Eggs are considered as some of the most yang foods and when cooked, add even more yangness. 
  • One leaf of raw kale, washed and teared into sections
  • One stalk of celery, sliced
  • 1/2 of ripe avocado for creaminess
  • One small juicing orange, peeled, quartered, seeds removed
  • One tablespoon of chia seeds
  • One medjool date for sweetness
  • Spring or filtered water to the max line in 16 oz blender cup
Blend all ingredients in a blender like Nutrabullet or Vitamix untill very smooth. 

Serves 2

Suitable for raw, Paleo, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free diets.
