1/2

1
avocado half, pitted and peeled
2/3
cup water
1/2
cup coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
2
teaspoons sugar

Tips  

For food safety reasons, frozen vegetables must be cooked.

You can use reduced-fat coconut milk, but the smoothies may be slightly less thick. Leftover milk can be frozen in small quantities for future uses.
