As I am writing this post, I am sipping on a wonderful Avocado Smoothie:) It is so rich and creamy and very revitalizing. I am a fan of avocados. I love their buttery texture and their rich creamy taste. Not only do they taste good - they a good for you. Loaded with vitamins- at least 20, and minerals like potassium, lutein and folate. A superfood in my book.
Smoothies are easy to make. Just place your ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour and serve. You can sit and drink it or take it with you.
