Today’s recipe is in honor of my little avocado. I have recently hit the 16 week mark and this creamy, tangy smoothie definitely hit the spot! Avocado has been a part of my weekly diet long before I became pregnant. It is one of the healthiest forms of fat and yes, it’s a MUFA. Typically, I spread it on sandwiches in leui of mayo but today I decided to use it as a smoothie base to add natural creaminess and texture. The heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fatty acids are just an added bonus.
Feel free to mix and match the fruits in this recipe. Mango would be great in leui of pineapple. Strawberries, blueberries or raspberries would work well too. You could even kick it up a notch and add a little kale or spinach.
Just make sure you remember the avocado.
I love you baby avocado. xo
