Avocado Kale Smoothie

Avocados are great on their own and of course on toast,  but they are also great in smoothies. I prefer to use them strictly in green smoothie, only for the simple fact that I’m a visual person. I like my green smoothies to be green and my berry smoothies to be a berry color, but that’s just me. With that being said, Avocados are the perfect addition to any green smoothie. They provide the perfect thickness needed to make a smoothie filling and satiating for anytime of  the day. Avocados gives the same thickness that bananas provides to a smoothies but they contain more potassium. They are also loaded with fiber, fat and antioxidants so they pretty much give bananas a run for their money. So while they are reasonably priced for Cinco de Mayo , I suggest you grab you some and make this smoothie asap. Remember an avocado a day keeps the doctor away! Check out the recipe below:

Avocado Kale Smoothie

  • 1 Avocado
  • Organic Kale (Fresh or Frozen)
  • Organic Kiwi
  • Pineapple (Fresh or Frozen)
  • Ginger (Fresh or Ground)
  • 1 Apple or  1 cup Apple Juice
  • 1 cup Coconut Water

Throw all the ingredients in a blender and blend to a desire thickness.

P.S.: The more liquid used the thinner the smoothie.

Happy Sipping!
