Avocado and Banana Smoothie

I am an occasional vegetarian and love experimenting with new ways to enjoy fresh unprocessed food. Smoothies are one of the easiest ways for me to have a fresh fruits and vegetables early in the morning. Drinking a smoothie right before hitting the gym is the perfect light breakfast to give me the fuel I need for my workout.

My newest smoothie recipe includes fresh banana and ripe avocado.

Avocado is one of my favorite vegetables and I like prefer to eat it drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and salt, or along side a protein rich legume

I recently added it in a smoothie and loved the result.
