Green smoothies are a simple way to increase your daily vegetable intake and this one does just that, without compromising on taste.
I'm sure many of you think an Avocado is a vegetable. Well, we don't mean to burst your bubble but, it is in fact a berry. You read that correctly! It is a fruit.
The Avocado is native to Mexico and Central America. It is creamy, rich, versatile, and flavoursome. They're rich in fibre, vitamin E, folic acid, and monounsaturated fats.
The health benefits of avocados are extensive. Regular consumption may help lower the risk of depression. Consuming high amounts of monounsaturated fats has shown to reduce depression. And, the large amount of folate found in avocado has been linked to maintaining your brain’s feel-good chemicals: dopamine and serotonin.
Studies have also shown that the antibacterial activity found in avocados can assist in preventing food poisoning ie. Protect against E. coli and other food-borne pathogens.
