Avocados are an incredible food to add to your diet. I try to eat two to three of them a day. Avocados top the list of foods with anti-aging benefits. Get obsessed about eating avocados because they are a healthy source of must-have fats. They are rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that work to lower cholesterol and are full of fiber, keeping your heart and skin healthy. Avocados are a great source of vitamin C and mineral salts crucial for supporting the production of collagen, a structural skin protein that holds soft tissue creating tone and elasticity. Here is a recipe to make avocados a delicious part of your family’s diet:

Avocado Smoothie

(One to two servings)

3 ripe avocados

1 ½ cup of almond or cashew milk

1 or more cups of crushed ice

Stevia, honey or your favorite sweetener to taste

Pinch cinnamon, nutmeg or your favorite spice

Blend in a high-speed blender until creamy smooth. Kids will love it too!
