Avocado Banana Berry Smoothie

Avocado Banana Berry SmoothieTreat yourself to this thick, creamy, nutritious, and delicious smoothie. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you :)

This smoothie contains two of my favorite thickeners, banana and avocado, making for one creamy smoothie. Add in a few berries and spices for a tasty treat you may need to spoon out of your blender it’s so thick and creamy.

Here are the many health benefits this healthy smoothie imparts.

  • Antioxidants: the berries and banana offer plenty of free radical scavenging antioxidants.
  • Anti-Inflammatory: the avocado and the spices help reduce inflammation throughout the body.
  • Weight Loss: stay satiated for hours with this filling smoothie.
  • Good Eye: avocado, banana, and berries support the health of your eyes.
  • Good Heart: both avocado and banana provide cardiovascular protection.
  • Good Digestion: eliminate and assimilate (key nutrients) with ease.
  • Healthy Fat: the avocado provides all important healthy fat for your brain, skin, hair, nails and to stabilize blood sugar levels.
  • Healthy Bones: the nutrients in this smoothie combine to help build strong bones.
  • Anti-Cancer: the avocado, berries, and spices help prevent cancer.

There you have it, the epitome of a healthy smoothie. By incorporating one or more of the add-ons you can take the nutrition of this smoothie up another level or two.

I find the spices really add a nice flavor, and I used frozen blueberries if you’re wondering. You may need to add a little more liquid if your blender isn’t powerful enough to blend through this thick concoction. Enjoy!
