Strawberry Avocado Smoothie

Strawberry Avocado Smoothie

Avocado in a smoothie? Yes!

I tend to think of avocados as vegetables, but they are a fruit. When used in this smoothie, you won’t really taste it or see the green color. You will, however, get the nutrition of the avocado – monounsaturated fat, dietary fiber, Vitamin’s C, B-6 and more.

The avocado also makes this smoothie very creamy. Bananas are often what gives smoothies their creamy texture. Since I’m not a banana fan, I was thrilled to find a nutritious alternative that I do like.
