For some reason it took me a while to try an avocado in my smoothie, but now it’s one of my favorite ingredients. Avocados give your smoothie a rich and creamy consistency while providing an array of health benefits.

Here are a few avocado health highlights.

  • Rich in antioxidants including Lutein, an eye friendly antioxidant
  • Studies have shown the monounsaturated fats in avocados help reduce cholesterol
  • Provides a good amount of soluble and insoluble fiber
  • Contains healthy fats and is an underrated source of protein

Now for the creamy avocado smoothie recipe, which I find keeps me satiated for hours. Enjoy!
