Smoothies are a great way to gain the proper nutrition you need to get your day started,
but if you’ve been drinking smoothies for a while, and you’ve stuck with the general fruits
and veggies that everyone else uses, things can become a little too routine. Branching
out and trying to different types of these wonderful, vitamin packed nutrient sources
keeps it fresh, and makes your diet more interesting.

One amazing addition to a smoothie can be avocado. These fruits are packed with
omega 3 fatty acids and other useful chemicals, so this article will show you ways to use
avocado in your smoothies.
