Avocado banana strawberry smoothie

 

Avocado! Wow what an amazing fruit with so many health benefits. The first thing that comes into your mind when we talk about avocado would be a Guacomole”( yes the recipe will soon be coming on my blog for this amazing salad ).

I had such an urge to have something cold ,creamy and sweet.
Now with an intention of weight loss , the thought didn’t  seem to be very appealing.But I had to fulfill my sweet tooth craving, so came up with this idea of making a smoothie which is healthy and tasty as well.
Strawberry and banana is a great combination by itself for a smoothie. With a little twist of an avocado the taste enhances because of its creamy texture.
Avocados are very nutritious and contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals.If you would like to lose weight, improve your skin and lower your risk of many life-threatening diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart disease, here’s why it’s well worth including more of this extremely healthy fruit in your diet.
Strawberries are no exception to this rule; in addition to antioxidants, they have many other nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that contribute to overall health. These include folate, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, and magnesium. It is also extremely high in vitamin C!
Bananas are good for bowel regularity and satiety. Adding a banana to your daily diet has an array of benefits in your body. Bananas help you reach your weight-loss goals, keep your bowels healthy, provide nutrients that regulate heart rhythm and have vitamin compounds for eye health.
I experimented this combination with almond milk and yoghurt and it was just amazing .
