But how often do you eat all 3 together in a meal? I think it is pretty rare. Some people don’t like to mix different textures of food together so they will stay away from having these 3 in one shot.
Here is a good news for you. You can make a beautiful smoothie and enjoy the benefits of them all at the same time. Man...it is filling and does make you feel awesome.
We all know that both avocado and apple oxidize quickly. Keep it from browning is impossible. But you can definitely slow it down. The pinch of salt is the major ingredient to perform that exact function. I found that table salt works best compared to Himalayan pink salt or sea salt.
Also, as soon as the smoothie is ready, transfer it to a thermo. It can stay in its crisp, beautiful color for the next 2-3 hours. After that, the browning will start and get serious. So, what I highly recommend is that blend everything together until the very last minute.
While you are peeling and cutting the apples and avocado, you may wonder, "Is there a priority so that it helps to slow down the browning process?" Yes, for sure. This recipe calls for an unpeeled apple because it gives some texture to the smoothie. But not everybody likes it. If you insist to peel it, between an avocado and an apple, which one should go first? I highly recommend to do the apple first because it takes longer time to prep it than an avocado. It also takes a relatively longer time to brown.
What if you want to double the quantity? Here is a trick that is widely used in Chinese restaurants. Prepare a bowl of cold water with 1/8 tsp of salt. Peel apples and core them. Transfer the peeled apple pieces into the salted water while you move on to work on the other apple(s). Your apples will stay nice and fresh. When you are ready for transferring them into the blender, discard the water. A little bit of salty water goes along is perfectly ok.
