Avocados are not just for guacamole. Their rich, sweet flesh blends right into this green wonder, with a touch of vanilla and the hidden hydration of cucumber. Add some honey to taste, if you want it a little sweeter.

  • 1/2 large avocado
  • 1/2 teaspoon matcha powder* (optional)
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Honey to taste, optional

Combine the ingredients in the blender and puree. Take a little taste and add honey if necessary to sweeten it. Serve immediately.
