Tropical Lime-ocado Smoothie

Avocadoes are one of the best foods on the planet!
  • You can get 18 different amino acids from the fruit (yes, I looked it up, it is a fruit!), including the 9 amino acids needed to form a complete protein.
  • They're rich in unsaturated fats to boost your HDL (good) cholesterol levels.
  • The fruit is an excellent source of carotenoids (Vitamin A), zeaxanthin, and other eye health-boosting nutrients.
If you need an energy boost smoothie to drink a few hours before an intense workout, check out this delicious tangy, creamy smoothie: Ingredients:
