Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for foods, creams, life hacks, and lotions that will make my skin all glowy and dewy for my wedding, and when I saw Kourtney Kardashian eating that pastel green avocado pudding snack on an episode of KUWTK, I was like, “WhattheHellisthatandhowdoImakeit?!” and Googled it like everyone else. You’d be surprised how much shit there is about it on Pinterest. I thought I'd found a perfect, clean-eating snack.
By the way, am I the only one who can’t quite figure out exactly what the parameters of Kourtney Kardashian’s diet are? Is she vegan? Gluten-free? Dairy-free, but eats meat and blends avocados every day? Is she a witch? Does she just sit around sipping on Scott Disick's tears? Can common folk like me afford her diet? What are the rules?! HALP!
Okay, so anyway. I made the avocado thing. It’s just some blended avocado, a little manuka honey, and some coconut milk. Sounds harmless enough, right?
But it was just really………...avocado-y.
And I like avocados. A lot.
The consistency was totally like normal pudding and the color was pretty. It didn’t taste bad or anything...just not something I’m totally apeshit over. I might try it with a little ice to tone it down a bit.
Would it make my skin glow if I made it every single day? Probably.
Will I ever make it again? Maybe.
Apparently, Kim wasn't that into it either.
Honestly, I like just plain sliced avocado with flake salt and ground pepper, so I could just have that every morning for the skin benefits and save myself the trouble. Or I can just make myself some kind of a simple avocado smoothie.
Side note on manuka honey: After I watched this gal’s YouTube video about her nighttime routine, I searched for night creams that contained manuka honey and found this magical lotion that heals pimples overnight and makes you feel safe. Apparently, manuka honey has been used for centuries and has antibacterial qualities. It’s made only in New Zealand from bees that pollinate the manuka bush and there’s all this intense internet debate over which kinds are legit or and which types are IMPOSTERS. Oh, and it’s like $48 per jar, minimum. I’m not kidding. But whatever, I just got a non-verified jar for $12 from Trader Joe’s. Sue me.
