What makes this healthy avocado smoothie so healthy? Let’s take a look at the ingredients:
Water is the perfect base for any smoothie. We all know that water is good for us, so why not get an extra cup per day by adding it to your smoothie?
It is recommended that people drink 64 ounces (8 cups) of water per day. I don’t know about you, but I have a pretty difficult time drinking that much water each day. When you’re on the go all day, sometimes it can be difficult to even remember to drink that much water.
Using one cup of water as the base of a smoothie every day can make the recommended daily water consumption seem a bit more doable.
Spinach is something that I add to many of my smoothies. This is how I ensure that I’m getting some healthy green vegetables into my diet every day.
Spinach can give you an energy boost because of its high iron content, and this leafy green is responsible for a host of other health benefits.
Adding it to your smoothie is beneficial and it WILL NOT make your smoothie taste like a vegetable, as long as you add enough fruit to balance it out!
Avocados are an amazing food! They are filled with healthy fats that are essential to a balanced diet.
Adding half an avocado to your smoothie can help you feel full for much longer. Smoothies don’t just have to be like drinking juice!
Avocado can turn your smoothie into a delicious and filling breakfast. Although high in calories, avocados can help you lose weight because they make you fuller and reduce the desire to eat more by suppressing your appetite.
Pineapple is added to this healthy avocado smoothie to sweeten it and make it super tasty!
Pineapples are high in vitamin C, manganese, and thiamin. This means that pineapple can boost your immune system and help prevent you from getting sick, improve bone strength, and give you energy.
Lemon juice is something that can be added to any smoothie to give it a sweeter taste. If I can taste the spinach in my smoothie, I just add some lemon juice!
Lemons are also a great source of vitamin C.
Ginger adds a little zing to this healthy avocado smoothie, but that’s not all it does! It has been known to help with stomach issues such as nausea and indigestion. Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe your stomach.
Enjoy this green avocado smoothie for breakfast in the morning, or as a snack during the day. It is delicious and super refreshing.
