5 Easy Avocado Smoothie Recipes To Fill You Up

It’s a well known fact that adding avocado to, well, pretty much anything is a great decision. Be it a sandwich, burrito, taco, Buddha bowl, salad, or smoothie, avocados elevate the dish, taking it to a new flavorful dimension. Not to mention the fact that avocados contain an assortment of beneficial nutrients that promote heart, brain, and immune health.

Avocado Nutrition

Nutritious, versatile, and tasty, avocados exhibit an array of vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, protein, and more. Technically a fruit, avocados are an integral component of Mexican, Central American, and South American cuisine. People incorporate them into dishes like tacos, salsas, sauces, spreads, dips, and more. According to food data, a single seven-ounce avocado exhibits the following nutrients:

  • 322 calories
  • 30 grams of fat
  • 14 grams of fiber
  • 4 grams of protein
  • 17 grams of carbohydrates
  • 22% of the daily value (DV) of vitamin C
  • 35% of the DV of vitamin K
  • 41% of the DV of folate
  • 28% of the DV of vitamin E
  • 14% of the DV of magnesium
  • 22% of the DV of niacin (B3)
  • 21% of the DV of potassium
  • 30% of the DV of pyridoxine (B6)
  • 12% of the DV of manganese

As you can see, avocados are very nutritious fruits with high amounts of healthy fats and fiber. The monounsaturated fatty acid, oleic acid, in avocado is a heart-healthy fat that works to reduce cardiovascular inflammation. The beta-sitosterol, plant version of cholesterol, in avocado helps to naturally lower cholesterol levels. The lutein and zeaxanthin antioxidants in avocado also work to promote healthy vision. These antioxidants help protect the tissues in your eye from UV light damage, and may even decrease the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Additionally, the potassium in avocados is great for naturally lowering blood pressure. Research states that potassium works to lower sodium levels in the blood, easing tension on the blood vessel walls.

Avocados In Smoothies

It may sound odd, but an avocado in your smoothie provides a luxurious, creamy texture with a clean taste that doesn’t overpower other ingredients. In fact, most people don’t taste avocado if it is in a smoothie. Using other powerful flavors helps to hide avocado’s flavor, which isn’t powerful to begin with. You can easily hide it with raw cacao powder, banana, blueberries, mango, pineapple, and more. Just make sure that you don’t add underripe avocado cubes to your smoothie because that slightly bitter flavor will come through.
