If you’ve been tempted to jump on the avocado smoothie trend or have a love for avocados, this Avocado & Mango Protein Smoothie is about to have you swooning.
Adding avocado to smoothies is all about finding the right blend, otherwise it can go oh-so-wrong.
The avocado provides a creamy texture that is hard to find in dairy-free smoothies, while the mango adds a natural subtle sweetness. Coconut water to keep you hydrated, protein powder to keep you full, but this Avocado & Mango Protein Smoothie truly becomes superb by adding the lime and mint.
Avocados are packed with fiber, folate, and vitamin K. Plus, the healthy fats in avocados make it easier for the body to absorb all the other good stuff in smoothies like vitamins A, C, and K.
