This avocado and spinach detox smoothie is full of antioxidants, low in carbohydrate and has zero cholesterol. More importantly, it’s delicious…
This is such a simple recipe with only 7 ingredients. First are the base super fruits of avocado and banana. Both full of potassium. Great for keeping your heart healthy and regulating your blood pressure. The avocados also add fat, but not the bad stuff. The oil in avocados has zero saturated fat and is full of monounsaturated fatty acids, which drive down cholesterol. Good news for all of us.
Then there’s the baby spinach. Fantastic for providing fibre and iron. It’s also full Vitamin K which is critical for healthy strong bones. Remember Popeye!?
Next, are the chia seeds and ginger. These are the super ingredients. Both chia seeds and ginger are packed full of antioxidants, but there’s more. Chia seeds are high in fibre and packed full of nutrients. Ginger, on the other hand, has wonderful anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea qualities.
Last but by no means least there’s the almond milk that brings it all together. A fantastic dairy substitute which is nutritious and low in calories. Great for those on a vegan diet or those who simply want to reduce the amount of dairy they are consuming.
That’s it. A very simple, healthy and delicious Grab’n Go meal that will set you for the day and all the way through until dinner. So let’s make it…
