Still looking to fulfill your new year’s resolution by eating healthier? Look no further! This banana avocado smoothie is super simple to make and only requires 5 minutes of your time.
I’ve stressed the health benefits of avocado in my previous posts, they are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, folate, vitamin K, vitamin c, fiber, and potassium. Bananas are also rich in vitamin c, potassium, vitamin b6 and manganese, and they help regulate your blood sugar. Other benefits include aiding in digestion and weight loss. Pineapples have a high vitamin C content and are also anti-inflammatory.
With the combination of chia seeds, which are high in magnesium (perfect for restoring your muscles after a workout) and are loaded with antioxidants, you have a perfect meal in this banana avocado smoothie.

If you really want to read about the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, read How Not To Die by Dr. Greger. Together with The China Study, it’s a vast comprehensive study of plant-based nutrition.
This is also a perfect post-workout smoothie because it contains the necessary nutrients to help you with muscle recovery and the vitamins you need to speed up your metabolism.
I really love this smoothie, it’s tasty, healthy, and really easy to make. It also keeps me full for a long time!
I know many people would love to get into the habit of making green smoothies or juices for breakfast but lack the knowledge on how to start. Honestly, all you need are fresh whole-foods and a blender. Most of us already have blenders sitting at home so give this recipe a try and make it for lunch or breakfast tomorrow.
If you don’t like one of the ingredients replace it with a fruit of your choice! If you need help with ideas, send me a message!
