I follow a TON of food blogs (and other ones as well). My Google Reader probably has close to 300 individual blogs. Many of the food blogs have been highlighting smoothies: a variety of concoctions that take minutes to prepare and are oh so portable for morning commutes, post-run refuelings, or a quick snack.
Enter: the world’s perfect food: a deliciously ripe avocado. (Honestly, for me, may be the next power food!)
Here is what went into mine for a quick dinner last night and what benefits are in the ingredients:
(serves 3 – I got 2 large servings out of it and shared with a friend)
1 avocado – 11 benefits besides yummy
1/2 naval orange – my parents have them growing in their backyard
1 cup pineapple chunks – could eat this all the time!
11 oz unsweetened NAKED coconut water – didn’t really care for it by itself, but has tons of nutrition!
Ice to your liking
1 tsp of agave nectar (use this stuff more than honey now)
Blend. Drink. Enjoy.
Another way I can now eat my new healthy food fave! My only problem with avocados is that they turn brown too quickly…oh, well.
