9 Healthy Avocado Smoothie Recipes for Summer
Avocado smoothie recipes are a delicious way to start your morning. Avocados add a rich, creamy consistency to your smoothie, without upping the sugar content, like yogurt or bananas do. That means they’re the perfect smoothie ingredient for those on a paleo, Whole30, keto or Bulletproof Diet.
Technically a fruit, though more like a vegetable in nutrients, avocado is chock-full of fiber, potassium, vitamin B, vitamin E and healthy fats.
Because avocados are high in inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, be sure to increase your omega-3s to balance the 6s. Think: salmon, eggs and grass-fed beef and butter. Then you’ll be fine to eat up to a couple of avocados a day. And with the variety of avocado smoothie recipes in this roundup, you’ll have no problem with that.
