Avocado Green Smoothie

green_smoothieYes avocado! Avocados are rich in vitamin B and E, great for cancer protection and cardiovascular health. So why not add it to your morning smoothie for a great nutritional boast. I recommend 1/4 of a avocado or so for your smoothie, maybe half if you are making a large amount. As mentioned in another post the key to green smoothies is the having a higher ratio of fruit. In this one I added pineapple as it tends to dominate any other flavors.

1/2 cup of non fat greek yogurt
1 banana
1 cup packed baby spinach
1/4 – 1/2 pealed and pitted avocado
1 cup frozen peaches
1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/4-1/2 cup of water (add as needed if to thick)

Makes about 4 8oz servings, or 2 large glasses :)
