Avocados are getting a lot of attention lately so I was inspired to try this Chocolate Avocado Protein Smoothie. I love mashing half an avocado with my hard boiled egg on toast, I love guacamole and the long list of nutritional value in an avocado made it a good addition to any protein smoothie. If you are looking for great way to add the health benefits of avocado to your diet, give this Chocolate Avocado Protein Smoothie a try.
Avocado’s taste great and are really good for you. They have more potassium than a banana, are loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and contain lots of fiber – half an avocado has 7 grams of fiber which makes up 25% of your daily requirement.
The heart healthy fats in avocados can reduce LDL cholesteol levels, while increasing in the HDL – good – cholesterol. Avocado’s can also help your body better absorb Vitamin A, D, E and K- as they are fat soluble, meaning they need to be combined with fat in order to be utilized.
This Chocolate Avocado Protein Smoothie made with Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Chocolate Protein Powder, also gives you the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.
For a vegan option try making this Chocolate Avocado Protein Smoothie with almond milk and our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Chocolate Protein Powder – as super yummy plant based option full of healthy fats, and still includes our added B Vitamins and added Leucine for maintaining healthy muscle mass.
Enjoy! Another great smoothie made with dates is this Tropical Avocado Protein Smoothie.
