Big news, guys! Eatmail subscribers already know this, and it’s sort of good news and bad news. The bad news is that I won’t be coming out with new recipes/sending the Eatmail for the next three weeks (*gasp!*). But the good news is after that three weeks I’m going to have some major recipe inspiration…of the Asian variety. That’s right, I’m headed to Asia!

If you’ve navigated to the “Live” side of the menu bar, you may have noticed I like to travel/talk about travel/photograph my travels a lot. I’ve gallivanted around Europe, hiked through South America (and picked up a boyfriend-tulip-man along the way), and experienced Africa, but Asia hasn’t worked its way into my agenda, that is until now.

The general itinerary will involve us starting in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and eventually making our way to Bangkok, Thailand. If you’ve ever visited these parts and have food/fun recommendations, I’d love it if you’d drop a comment below!

So onto today’s recipe, a Chocolate Avocado Smoothie. Apparently in much of the Southeast Asian cuisine, avocados are eaten as a sweet rather than savory. We did the whole avocado chocolate pie thing, but if you’re crunched for time and just want a simple, decadent smoothie without loads of guilt, whip this bad boy up.

    This sounds like a super epic smoothie! I adore them – I drink every day. My favourites are with bananas, peaches, carob powder and fresh ginger (I add water or oat nut milk to make it smoother).

    I am definitely trying this!

    Thanks!
