In an effort to eat more healthily I plan on starting my days with a healing or energy giving breakfast. It’s a smart way to start the day. Yesterday I started the day with an apple avocado smoothie. Yum! It is a thoroughly delightful smoothie that will put a pep in your step once consumed. Every ingredient provides healing qualities and together may help to keep symptoms of cardiovascular disease in check. What could be better?
Oh this is a yummy one. The creaminess of the avocado and the invigorating slight zing of apple and kiwi are balanced out by coconut water. I used Harmless Harvest organic and raw coconut water, but you can whichever coconut water you prefer.
A few of my friends were unconvinced that a smoothie that included avocado would be a tasty treat. My friends are usually willing candidates when taste testing is the order of the day, but somehow, the thought of avocado in a smoothie rendered them all rather unwilling. It took some coaxing to get them to agree to try a glass. It was so funny to see their faces ball up as they took their first reluctant sip, and then relax once realization occurred that apple avocado smoothies are a wonder.
I am sure you will be much wiser and give this apple avocado smoothie a try post-haste. I am in need of this smoothie’s healing qualities, but even if I was not, I would still guzzle it down with a smile on my face, and I’m sure you will too.
