Anyone have a really good recipe for a guacamole smoothie?
I have started a green smoothie fast and have about 5 avocados that I bought last weekend but didn't eat. I tried to make a guaccamole GS a couple of days ago, but it didn't taste much like guacamole.
I also have red onion, roma tomatoes, sea salt, cucumber, garlic, Bragg's vinegar, along with romaine and kale. Ok if I have to get a few more ingredients. I have been thinking all afternoon of how to make a good guacamole smoothie!

I'm not a big avocado fan as far as eating it by itself or in salads. However, I know that avocados are great for curbing my appetite and is great for moisturizing my skin and hair from the inside out. I've started adding 1 avocado to my green smoothie every day. I use any type of greens (stems too), 1 avocado, 3 apples, and 1 bananna. Sometimes I use 1/2 of a lemon instead of the bananna. Of course you can mix up the fruit and use different types. I love my smoothies and can not taste the avocado at all. However, it gives my smoothies a surprisingly wonderful smooth texture that I love! I have used entire cucumber in my smoothie. I love it and it's so great for your skin and ridding the grey hair (I'm starting to see 1 or 2 strands :-(. As far as the other ingredients I've never tried them in a smoothie. They sound great to use to make a summer salad (oninons, tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic, romaine & Kale). All you'd have to do is make some raw dressing. Alissa has some great dressing recipies in her book that are super easy to make. Actually, one of the recipies call for Braggs, garlic, sea salt. Good luck with this!

This is my guacamole
recipe. I would think you can just use these ingredients and if you want to add greens, use spinach so it won't change the flavor much, if at all. To make it more of a smoothie, add water or more tomatoes. Cucumber may work too or it may change it too much. Maybe start with 1/2.

I just did a Google search and found this:
flesh of one avocado
2 to 3″ shallots (flat spring onion)
3″ Lebanese or continental cucumber
2 to 4 tomatoes
juice of 1/2 a lemon
splash of olive oil (cold pressed, extra virgin)
small clove garlic
large handful of greens (bok choi works well)
water to thin - add last
Celtic sea salt to taste

Looks like we were posting at the same time.
I have everything for your recipe but cilantro, which I don't praticularly care for. Is there anything I can substitute for cilantro?
If not, I may try it tomorrow without that one ingredient.

use parsley instead :)

Parsley may work like Aleesha said. Also scallions. Cilantro isn't that important if you have the others. May work better without.

I have parsley and like it.
Thanks Aleesha and Dimond. I thought I would make this one as my lunch for work today, but I overslept, so I'll plan to have it for dinner. For this morning I'll just have to quickly throw together some things (romaine, banana, apples) that I have ready to go and don't have to slice or peel.
I'll let you know tonight how my guacamole smoothies turns out.

Thanks again Dimond and Aleesha.
I made the guacamole yesterday, but stopped short of really getting a smoothie because I have been wanting the taste for so long that I didn't want to mess it up. I used parsley instead of cilantro, lemon instead of lime and added an extra roma tomato. Perhaps it was my avocados, but it started to lose a bit of "guacamole" taste and I was afraid to ruin it, so I stopped short of having a consistency that I could really drink. I decided to eat it from a bowl with a spoon. It was Good! Had the leftovers today.

I use avocados in sweet-flavored smoothies all the time. Don't limit yourself to having avocados in only guacamole.
