[Healthy Smoothies] 12 Avocado Smoothie Recipes + 3 Stunning Avocado Benefits

The 12 Best Avocado Smoothie Recipes +

Congratulations! Among the myriad of available smoothie options you have found your way to one of the absolute superstars of all healthy smoothies: the avocado smoothie.

Avocados are uniquely nutritious and delicious fruits (yes, avocados are officially part of the fruit family). They contain 20 different essential nutrients, notably Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, fiber and potassium.

Aside from covering this extraordinary range of nutrients, what makes avocados stand out even more is that unlike most fruits they are very low in carbs while being a great source of so called healthy fats (Omega-3 fatty acids).

Avocado Benefits #1: They Contain Powerful Healthy Fats

Omega-3 fatty acids testify to the fact that not all fats are evil. Yes, you hear us right. There are good, healthy fats out there.

How so? These good healthy fats help your body retain precious fat-soluble nutrients contained in many vegetables, fruits and greens. If it weren't for these healthy fats your body would not be able to access and extract those essential nutrients from a lot of the foods you eat.

More than that, Omega-3 fatty acids have been thoroughly studied by science and found to feature more than 17 important health benefits, from supporting brain health, to fighting depression, lowering the risk of heart disease and aiding with inflammation, to name just a few.

This is the reason why healthy fats like Omega-3 fatty acids are an essential building block of any healthy smoothie.

Avocado Benefits #2: They Are Amazing Skin Foods

Vitamins A, D, E and K as well as beta-carotene and lycopene —  all of the best vitamins for skin — require a healthy fat to be fully absorbed by your system in order to nourish, protect and repair your skin from cell damage.

Just one avocado provides 20% of the daily Vitamin E and 34% of the daily Vitamin C your skin needs to stay firm, moisturized and supple. 

Adding avocado to your smoothie is, in essence, caring for your skin as it helps you moisturize and hydrate it from the inside.

Avocado Benefits #3: They Are Powerful Brain Foods

Avocados are good for your brain as your brain needs a lot of oxygen — alone it uses up 20% of your body's entire oxygen supply. 

Avocado's healthy fats support healthy blood flow to the brain, improving its oxygen supply which allows your brain to heal and grow. 

By contrast, an unhealthy and irregular blood flow to the brain, due to say high blood pressure, can cause brain diseases and declining cognitive functions. 

Many people consume bananas for potassium, which is important for the transmission of nerve signals in your brain, allowing your neurons to transmit up to 1,000 nerve impulses per second.

But, guess what? Avocados contain even more potassium than bananas – half an avocado (100 grams) packs 487 mg of potassium that is 10% of your daily recommended intake.

In other words, avocado smoothie recipes are brain power recipes. If you still don't adore avocados by now, let's talk about what they do for your palate.
