Avocado Raspberry Banana Smoothie
Did you see that…the words AVOCADO and SMOOTHIE together. You may think I am crazy…my mom thought it was a bit weird, but I decided I was going to try it. What did I have to lose right? I mean avocados are extremely good for you, so why not add them to my morning routine?!
I grabbed my avocado, Driscoll’s Raspberries, Chiquita bananas, and carrots at Publix and I was on my way to a new experiment. Avocados in my smoothie 🙂
I add in my ice cubes and coconut water and I was amazed on how well the flavors blended together to a creamy deliciousness!
Here are some of the health benefits to the ingredients I added to this smoothie recipe:
Avocados – Besides being loaded with the “good fat”, they help heart health, lower cholesterol and lower triglycerides. Plus, they make your smoothie extra creamy 🙂
Raspberries – These beautiful berries are rich in vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. They also have a high concentration of ellagic acid which has been said to help prevent cancer.
Bananas – Besides tasting great, they are loaded with potassium which helps muscles recover and relax, and they have also been known to help you sleep better.
Carrots – The orange powerfood will give you vitamin A and is also linked to preventing cancer, giving you healthier looking skin and aids in digestion.
