Green smoothies with avocados
Avocados make a great addition to green smoothies. When used as a base for green smoothies, they will provide your smoothie with a thick and creamy texture, which will be similar to that of a milkshake. Avocados are also an excellent source of folate, Vitamin E, and certain antioxidants that are thought to slow the aging process. Here is a great recipe for green smoothies that contain avocado!
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 banana
- 1 apple
- 1 stock of celery
- 1-2 cups fresh baby spinach (or other leafy green)
- 1/2 – 1 cup water
Each of the ingredients of these green smoothies should be added to your blender one at a time and blended together until smooth. Due to the banana and avocado, this smoothie will be quite thick. If you find that the consistency is too thick, then you can thin out the mixture with a small amount of water.
