Avocado Mango Minty Creamy Smoothie

The inclusion of an avocado makes this smoothie at least a light meal in itself. On the one hand, writing a smoothie recipe seems pointless, since it's like writing a recipe for how to make popcorn or boil water. On the other hand, a good cookbook or blog could be written with nothing but smoothie recipes - so easy, so good for you, so fun to drink. Enjoy.
Avocado Mango Minty Creamy Smoothie
1 avocado, peeled and stone removed
1/2 cup mango chunks
1 cup mint leaves, loosely packed
2 cups pineapple-orange juice
1 tbsp. agave nectar or maple syrup
1. Throw it all in a blender and go crazy. If it seems too thick to drink, add a little bit more juice. Garnish with a little mint leaf, a way of saying "this smoothie is so badass, it needs to be garnished with a mint leaf."
