Energy Boosting Smoothie

Enjoy looking and feeling younger with this energy-boosting smoothie.


There is no better time of the year than summer to create fresh new recipes with wholesome 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 nutritious 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. Avocado and kiwi are also good sources of 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, these free radicals may contribute to the aging process and the development of cancer, heart disease, and arthritis.
