Smoothie of the Day: Apple and Avocado Smoothie

If you are looking for easy ways to incorporate more “good fats” and calcium into your diet, this smoothie is perfect for you. Avocados contain healthy monounsaturated fat and they are also a good source of potassium. Avocados are also a good source of vitamin K, a vitamin that is important in proper blood and bone function. The apples in this smoothie will boost your immunity with a healthy dose of antioxidants and keep your digestion strong with their fiber content. I like to add one tablespoon of Microrganic’s GreenCalcium, a 100% plant source of calcium from the marine plant Lithothamnium calcareum. Green Calcium is naturally rich in calcium, magnesium and 72 other trace minerals important for optimum calcium absorption and bone health. Give this smoothie a try today!

Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit and cut the flesh. Cut the apple into little chunks (skin still left on).  Put the apple juice in a blender, add the avocado, apple chunks, and ice cubes. Process until smooth. Serve and enjoy!
