Avocado may not seem like the first ingredient to add to a smoothie, but it is a wonderfully creamy base. It adds a subtle buttery quality, and you don’t even taste it. The reason for this is because the flavors of the other ingredients overpower it. In the case of this smoothie, the crisp cucumber, zesty lime, and herbaceous cilantro command the attention of your taste buds.
