    Avocado Smoothie

    I know it sounds weird, but this avocado smoothie tastes sensational. It's beautifully rich and creamy on its own, but the extra swirl of coulis turns it into a real dream. It's essential to use a perfectly ripe, buttery avocado that gives slightly when pressed gently. The precise quantity of milk will depend on the size of the avocado and how thick you like smoothies. As for honey, again the amount required is very much a matter of personal taste.
