Avocado Green Tea Smoothie

Now we all love avocado on toast, but how about avocado in your smoothie? It adds a dose of healthy fats and makes it decadently creamy.

This avocado green tea smoothie is a nutrient dense cocktail and tastes delicious. You have assorted veggies (celery, carrot, kale), tangy zing (lime juice and optional baobab superfruit powder), aromatic warmth from fresh ginger, sweet fresh juicy pineapple and earthy flavours of the green tea. Add to this some protein powder and Goldenberry and Chia seed super powder blend and you are set take on the World!

I love to use green tea as the base for this smoothie? Why? Green tea is high in antioxidants and healing compounds like polyphenols, which help protect your heart through lowering blood pressure. These compounds help regulate blood sugar and so help prevent diabetes. Through its caffeine content, green tea may also improve brain function, improve physical performance, increase fat burning and boost metabolic rate.

This smoothie makes a delicious change from the fruit-laden sweet ones, as it is more veggie based. I do though, love loading up my bowl with some fresh fruit! I love this as a pre or post workout recovery bowl or as a breakfast to set me up for the day.
