When it comes to smoothies, avocado is always a good idea. Containing almost 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, avocado is the perfect ingredient for making healthy smoothies because it's one of the most nutrient-dense fruits and provides a substantial serving of heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, as well as vitamin C, E, B6 and folate to support optimal health and wellbeing. It's an incredibly versatile fruit that's a nutritious addition to any smoothie because the healthy fats in avocado help your body absorb the nutrients from other smoothie ingredients. And let's not forget the wholesome creamy flavour that avocado brings to the party!
