Avocado Citrus Green Smoothie

Healthy fats are always important in a balanced diet, and  allow us to absorb other nutrients to keep our bodies going. They are especially important in the winter when our skin and hair tends to be drier.  Sometimes it can be tough to get the right amount in, so one easy way is in a delicious smoothie. The recipe I am sharing with you today contains avocado, a heart healthy fat, as well as plenty of citrus to boost your vitamin c, and greens for extra goodness.  It tastes wonderful, and if you choose to add the optional protein powder, it is the perfect breakfast on the go.
