Papaya Mango Avocado Breakfast Smoothie
It’s never too early for avocado, so we’re tossing an alligator pear into this fruity breakfast smoothie.
Avocados add creamy texture, balance flavor, and provide a boost of nutrients like pantothenic acid, fiber, folate, potassium, and vitamins B6, C, E and K. Plus, they’re loaded with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which increase our absorption of fat-soluble nutrients and help us stay full longer.
This nutritious Papaya Mango Avocado Smoothie makes for a quick and portable breakfast that can easily be thrown together half asleep in the A.M. or blended in advance and stored in the freezer.
