Avocado Smoothie

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.
