1
avocado half, pitted and peeled
3/4
cup cranberry-blueberry juice
1/2
cup Cascadian Farm® frozen organic blueberries

Directions

  • 1 Microwave spinach as directed on box. Rinse with cold water until cooled. Drain, squeezing out as much liquid as possible.

Expert Tips

For food safety reasons, frozen vegetables must be cooked.

Here's an easy way to pit an avocado: Cut the avocado lengthwise in half around the pit, and pull apart the halves. The pit will stay in one of the halves. Firmly and carefully strike the pit with the sharp edge of a knife. While holding the avocado, twist the knife to loosen and remove the pit.
