Beginning your day with wholesome and nutritious breakfast cannot be stressed enough. But if you’re looking for easy time saving breakfast recipes, then smoothies are the way to go. They give you an instant vitamin boost and can be whipped up in no time. I’ve been making smoothies for my 13yr old (aren’t they always in a rush?) since last year and only recently discovered that avocado does wonders to any smoothie.
The Aha moment arrived last week when I remembered that I had an avocado lying around desperate to be used and decided to throw it into my smoothie.
And boy was it delicious!
Where have I been all this time?
Avocados are great in smoothies because they add a rich creamy texture not to mention their anti-inflammatory properties, nutrients and minerals. They also fill you up and provide you with the fuel to last through the day. I love adding bananas into my smoothies and this combo (avocado and banana) works perfectly. I use almond milk when making it for myself and semi skimmed milk for my 13yr old, so go with your preference.You can use honey or maple syrup to sweeten it.An easy fun way to ingest something healthy never sounded so good.Enjoy.
