A liquid, Japanese-inspired guacamole on ice—nutritiously delicious and refreshing. We love it.
1/4 head iceberg lettuce,
outer leaves removed
1 lime, peeled
1/2 avocado, peeled and stoned
1 tsp wasabi (optional)
3 ice cubes
Juice the lettuce, lime and cucumber. Transfer to a blender and blend with the avocado and wasabi. Serve over ice.
- Avocados are the most energy dense and nutrient-rich fruit per calorie.
- Wasabi, which is also called Japanese horseradish, is available in specialty stores and Asian markets in both paste and powder form. It has a hot, fiery, pungent flavor. Take care.
