Creamy Avocado Mango Smoothie

Avocados are one of nature’s most perfect foods. They are full vitamins, good fats, fiber, + are extremely low in sugar. For years we’ve been slicing them into our sandwiches, dipping our chips in them, + smashing them onto our toast, but I am here to tell you to start putting avocados in your smoothies!

Sounds weird right? I have to admit — I was a skeptic. The first time I added avocado into a smoothie, I was prepared to cringe at first taste. To my great surprise, it was one of the BEST smoothies I had ever had. Adding avocado makes for an amazing, creamy texture + the flavor mixes perfectly with any other fruits//flavors you add! Incorporating this superfood into your smoothies will make for a nutrient-packed drink that will satisfy + keep you full for hours.

Here is a delicious + summery avocado smoothie that is sure to make your mornings a little brighter.
