Orange + Avocado = surprisingly good!

I’ve already marveled at the orange + broccoli combo, but I have an even more random one for you today: orange + avocado.

I saw a recipe in my VitaMix cookbook for an Orange Avocado Sorbet and was quite intrigued.  Here is my modified version:

Orange Avocado Sorbet

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • about 1in square of orange peel
  • 1/2 small lemon, peeled
  • 2 Tbsp honey (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups ice

Blend in vitamix until sorbet forms.  Then eat and be amazed.

My husband could quite get past the green color, but did agree that it tasted just like an Orange Julius.  Anyone else remember getting Orange Julius in the mall?  Back in the tight-rolled jeans and scrunchie days?  I remember getting an Orange Julius and a pack of sour patch kids and walking around feeling so cool to be old enough to be at the mall with my friends and no parents.

Now I can’t imagine letting my kids go to the mall alone.  I will be the mom walking stealthily behind her kids, hoping they don’t catch me.  I’ll leave my scrunchie at home, you know, as to avoid embarrassing them and all.  :)
