Shake #2 – Apple, Avocado, Banana shake

 

#2 Apple, Avocado, Banana shake (365 days of guilt-free shakes series)

This is the second sugar-free shake in this guilt-free series. The funniest part while making this shake was that, after adding the apple to the blender, I noticed that I had carved an ‘alien looking doll’ out of the apple-core. I didn’t leave that alone. I started styling the alien doll with eyes and lips, then placed the avocado pit over its head and then remembered a tiny toy banana I received from a store and placed it over the pit – making it a perfect logo for this shake:) (You can see them in the video). Introduce this ‘alien- apple doll’ to your little dolls and let me know their sweet comments:)
