Spring is the time to get healthy and excited for the gorgeous weather ahead. Make this Creamy Avocado Kale Smoothie and feel good about yourself!
Today, I’m updating an oldie but a goodie. This Creamy Avocado Kale Smoothie is one of my most popular posts of all time. It was originally shared September 2014, so when I recently made the recipe, I thought it was time to refresh the photos.
Have you ever had a few days where you eat completely unhealthy and feel like your body is craving nutrients it needs? Well, when I feel this way, a smoothie or a juice tends to be the way I go in order to jumpstart healthier habits. I ADORE avocados and
could eat them for every single meal… drinks are no exception. I love the creaminess that the avocados contribute to this smoothie and they pair very well with the flavor of mango and honey. If you’re feeling a bit sluggish, this vitamin-rich smoothie should give you a nice pick me up!
*Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium and vitamins C, K, folate, B6 and they are full of heart-healthy unsaturated fat.
*Kale is FULL of antioxidants and is rich in vitamin K. It’s also has a lot of fiber for a leafy green vegetable and is great at reducing cholesterol.
*Cacao nibs are great for cardiovascular health. They contain polyphenols which may improve the health of your heart and brain arteries by serving as antioxidants and inhibiting blood platelets from forming a clot.
