Avocados are a true superfood. They’re essentially the only fruit that contains monounsaturated fat—the good fat. Avocados are also sodium, cholesterol and trans-fat free—and they’re delicious. A perfect food, if you ask me.
Smoothies are a fabulous way to get avocados into your diet—and blended with all sorts of yummy ingredients, an avocado smoothie is a super tasty way to start your day. I’m lucky that my kids love the taste of avocados; my oldest son even likes avocados on sandwiches in place of mayo. Most times, both of kids love avocado smoothies and are intrigued by how a sweet drink can be coloured green (and other times, my kids don’t even realise avocados are in there!).
