Apple Avocado Smoothie
How creative do you get with your smoothies? I will admit, I love trying new varieties and there isn’t many that I have tried that I don’t like. Smoothies are an easy and delicious way to bring more fruits, vegetables, and other good stuff into your diet that you normally wouldn’t eat on a daily basis. I mean how many days can you say that you had carrots, cucumbers, some greens and some fruit all before lunch? Well, that’s what a smoothie is all about.
Be warned, too many fruits mean that you are just drinking a glass of sugar. A blender full of all vegetables may not have the flavor that will have you making it again tomorrow. I like to make my smoothies with at a 50/50 mix of fruits and vegetables and then I can add in my greens and spices. I have been adding cinnamon and turmeric lately as they are both really good for us…and when you just add a small amount, you don’t taste them much at all in your smoothie.
Today, I am sharing my Apple Avocado Smoothie with you all. We all know that avocados are good for us, they are loaded with those “good fats,” but you have to enjoy them in moderation 😉 I used a half avocado and added in Crunch Pak Green Tart Apples. I figured the apples would add a sweetness and some great juice, if you have ever added avocado to your smoothie, you know that they make them really creamy and thick, so the apples were the perfect accompaniment. I love using Crunch Pak Apples for their freshness, flavor, and sheer convenience. A bag of Crunch Pak Apples never lasts too long in our house because everyone loves that they can just open the refrigerator and grab a slice or two! Be sure to look for Crunch Pak at your favorite retailers.
