Avo Almond Joy Smoothie

avo amond joy shake

This avocado almond joy smoothie is what I would call my version of a green goddess smoothie. It is creamy, rich, sweet and feels like an exotic treat, and it doesn’t stop at your taste buds, but offers bundles of benefits for your health. It is loaded with vitamin C, A and is also big to boot on calcium, all from the mighty power of the kale alone. It also has you covered on potassium as the avocado in it packs an even bigger punch in this department with 35% more than that of the banana. And if I haven’t convinced you yet just how good this smoothie is for you then you can be sure that your immune system will thank you this winter when flu season hits and you are sipping on the oodles of immune boosting vitamins in this smoothie, all while giving yourself a sweet treat. So here’s to takin’ care of yourself and feelin’ good!
