Brazilians have a way with avocados. Avocado shakes and smoothies are a regular part of their diet and can be made sweet or savoury. It’s a healthy and flavourful way to put a bounce in your step first thing in the morning!

1 Tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
1 tsp (5 mL) natural vanilla extract
3 Tbsp (45 mL) wildflower honey
