To make this recipe even more filling, you can also add protein-rich ingredients. Some easy ways to add protein include:
I’ve heard people ask “is avocado good for smoothies?” And my answer is always a resounding yes!
Avocados are such a unique fruit thanks to their high fat content. While the word “fat” often has a bad connotation, certain types of dietary fats, like the ones found in avocados, are actually incredibly beneficial for you.
In fact, a diet high in healthy, unsaturated fats can have benefits for your weight and heart health.
Plus, avocados are also rich in essential nutrients like potassium, folate, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamins B5 and B6.
So, what does this mean? Unfortunately, avocados don’t have any magical fat-burning properties. But they are a rich source of healthy fats and fiber, both of which can help keep you full for longer, reducing the likelihood that you’ll end up munching later in the day.
And as a result, you may find that adding avocados can help you maintain your current weight or even lose weight.
