Creamy Raspberry-Avocado Smoothie

Paleo Creamy Avocado Berry Smoothie

We love smoothies in in our house.  What better way to get lots of servings of fruits and veggies in one,  and very tasty fell-swoop?!

My kids think it is an ice cream shake, and I further the deception by freezing leftovers in popsicle molds…sneaky Mommy!  They beg me for the ‘popsicles’! Now if only I could figure out a way to have these ready to go when school pulls out the food-dye, sugar laden popsicles that send my child’s ADD rocketing through the roof…..sigh! (I think maybe a ‘Grr” would be a better descriptor!)

Today’s recipe was originally inspired by Cara’s Cravings.  Enjoy!
