This Heart Healthy Avocado Protein Smoothie is the New Avocado Toast

When it comes to packing a lot of nutrients into a single food, avocados have pretty much cornered the market. They are the ultimate healthy fat, one of the best in helping your body absorb healthy nutrients from your vegetables.

Avocados are also high in monounsaturated oleic acid, a “heart healthy” fatty acid. When consumed in moderation, these kinds of “good fats” can lower bad cholesterol.

Not only that, but avocados provide plenty of vitamins and minerals themselves, including phytonutrients essential for healthy weight management.
