Avocado Banana Power Smoothie
Smoothies. Power Smoothies. Fruits and vegetables blended together into creamy, healthy deliciousness. Any way you say it, smoothies are a great addition to your daily diet. I have created so many smoothies and shared them here on the blog and I love sharing my favorite creations. Today I have a smoothie that I hope you all will enjoy, it is an Avocado Banana Power Smoothie.
Here are the ingredients I used in my smoothie, and why I blended them to perfection for breakfast.
Avocado – Not only does it make your smoothie amazingly creamy, it’s loaded with healthy fats, fiber and lots of important nutrients. Avocados are very high in potassium, in monounsaturated oleic acid (which is a “heart healthy” fatty acid) and are high in antioxidants.
Banana – I think we all know that bananas are loaded with Potassium, which is great for you!
Cucumbers – Are great for rehydration and are also a great source of vitamin B, so that means they are a natural pick-me-up.
Carrots – Give you vitamin A and aid in digestion. They are also linked to preventing cancer and giving you healthier looking skin.
Mango – I will be honest on this one, I had a slice left in the refrigerator and decided to throw it in 🙂 They also add great mango and are good for you as well!
Chia seeds – Are nutritional powerhouses, I add them into every smoothie.
Turmeric – I add it into every smoothie I make, it has so many benefits, but one of the main ones is it helps with inflammation.
Cinnamon – This is another one that I add it into every smoothie I make, it also many benefits, one of my favorites is that it helps increase your metabolism.
