Healthy fats and protein from the avocado and vitamins and fiber from the spinach are just a few added bonuses to this drink.
Did you know that spinach is loaded with vitamins A, K, E and B vitamins? Additionally this delicious and green vegetable (no food coloring needed) also contains magnesium, manganese, potassium, protein and fiber. Read more about the nutrition of spinach at whfoods.
I always love using avocado in shake and soup recipes, it is a great way to make a creamier texture in replace of yogurt or sour cream for example. By adding avocado you are also increasing the intake of fiber, protein, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids. Want to know more? Visit whfoods to learn more nutrition facts about avocados.
