Eat (and Drink) the Rainbow Smoothie Recipe: Glowingly Gorgeous Smoothie

The green smoothie; the quintessential healthy drink that started the whole craze. You can find a million and one green smoothie recipes online. There are entire websites dedicated solely to green smoothies. Why? Because they're delicious and nutritious!

I turn to this smoothie when I need something filling and want something creamy for breakfast. The creamy texture comes from the avocado. The avocado boasts a pretty impressive nutrient composition. It is a major source of monounsaturated fatty acids, a heart healthy and healthy skin supporting fat. And there's more!

This smoothie is an excellent source of vitamins A, C, K, and B6, magnesium, potassium, and manganese. It also contains a good amount of Vitamin E, copper, iron, pantothenic acid, niacin, and riboflavin.
