A Healthy Avocado Smoothie Recipe

While we’ve addressed the various ways you can enjoy avocados, be it smashed on toast or in an epic Buddha Bowl, we feel it’s high time we explored the healthy properties of this wondrous fruit and how you can reap the benefits through making an avocado smoothie every day. Loaded with fibre, they also contain high levels of vitamin E, iron, potassium and monosaturated fatty acids. All of these combined mean your heart stays healthy, your skin looks great, your cholesterol levels stay low and you feel fantastic! So imagine the nutrition packed into an avocado smoothie made with bananas, dates, raspberries and more. Just follow the simple step by step guide and you’ll soon be replacing an apple a day with an avocado!
