GREEN AVOCADO SMOOTHIE

PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES ★ SERVINGS: 1

This glass of delight has avocado for added richness. Avocado is technically a fruit—one that contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, which can lower cholesterol levels.

1/2 avocado, halved and pitted

1/2 cup well-packed baby kale

3/4 cup water

1/2 cup crushed ice

2 tablespoons of your favorite granulated sweetener such as swerve or monk fruit in the raw

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon coconut oil

Scoop the avocado flesh into a blender. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.

TIP: Blend smoothies for at least 5 minutes. This pumps up the recipe with extra air, which will make you feel full.
