Avocado Banana Smoothie Recipe

This Creamy Avocado Smoothie Is a Delicious Way to Help Your Heart — and Waistline

This creamy avocado banana smoothie is "the perfect natural pick-me-up," says Rich Goldstein, owner of the Natural Epicurean Academy of Culinary Arts. It's also a delicious way to protect your heart: the monosaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) in avocados and potassium in bananas all offer cardiovascular support, while cinnamon can help lower LDL cholesterol levels. Even better if you're watching your waistline: MUFAs have been shown to target belly fat, so sipping on this frosty low-calorie smoothie when the temperatures rise is a good idea.

Enjoy this creamy, dairy-free smoothie in the morning for breakfast or as part of a cooling lunch.
