Featured Green Smoothie of the Week: Healing Chlorella Avocado Smoothie with Watercress

I LOVE green smoothies and this recipe is becoming one of my favorites. It’s loaded with immune-boosting zinc and other trace minerals to promote optimal healing in the body. The avocado is a good source of vitamin K, a vitamin that is important in proper blood and bone function. Cucumbers are a concentrated source of many nutrients including vitamin A and manganese. I add a handful of watercress to give this smoothie a boost of vitamins A and C and a sprig of mint for manganese. I also add about one heaping tablespoon of chlorella! What is chlorella? Chlorella is an ancient single celled freshwater micro algae containing vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and many other useful phytonutrients. It is loaded with nutrients like vitamin A,  C, E, and zinc to increase your energy levels while boosting immunity. Give this smoothie a try today!
