There is no better time of the year than spring to create fresh new recipes with whole ingredients to help us feel good from the inside out.
While I typically advocate eating healthy meals rather than drinking them, there is no denying that smoothies provide an easy way to add a variety of nutrient dense foods to your snack time. This sweet and tangy smoothie recipe contains avocado, kiwi and pineapple -- a nutritious trio that delivers a healthy dose of fiber and vitamin C. Avocado provides energy, which comes from its monounsaturated 'healthy' fat content. It is also a good source vitamin E, known for its ability to help our skin retain its natural moisturizers. Vitamins C & E work as antioxidants to block cell damaging free radicals. Over time, free radicals may contribute to the aging process and the development of cancer, heart disease, and arthritis.
