This kale avocado smoothie is the pick-me-up your morning needs! Kale and avocados are some of my favorite nutrient-dense foods and I've been loving this combination in my green smoothies. Adding fresh avocado has increased the creaminess factor significantly! This recipe is perfect for breakfast on the go and for a quick mid-morning snack.
You can also make your smoothies ahead of time and store them in a tumbler in the fridge. I recently started doing this and bringing smoothies into work for a quick and healthy snack.
Avocados are commonly known for being a "super food" and are full of healthy fats and tons of vitamins. We all know how quickly an avocado can go from perfectly ripe to overly ripe. If you're getting close to tipping that scale, you can peel, slice, and freeze your avocados and save them for future smoothies! You can read more about great health benefits of avocados here.
Grab some leafy greens and fresh avocado so we can get blending!
