Vegan Recipe: Avocado Smoothie

For those who know me, they will know that I’m a try-to-be-healthy guy. I love eating clean and do not really like to touch junk food. Furthermore, we are becoming vegan. I said becoming – because we are not 100% due to the fact that our parents will cook meat and being Asian, family values are important and most often we comply to eat what they cook.

We are working on it to become a 100% vegan. So here I’m going to share with you a Vegan Avocado Smoothie Recipe.

It is not my recipe, its from some site I found on the web.
