This quick and easy Avocado Honey smoothie proves that they are more than just an ingredient in dips. Avocados do get some bad reviews because they do have a pretty high fat content, bu 75% of that is mono-unsaturated. Avocados also provide more potassium than a banana and are a good source of B, E, and K vitamins as well as dietary fiber.

And, as a bonus, at least one early study indicates that Avocados may help to lower cholesterol levels!

In any case, whether you are on a smoothie diet, or just enjoying them occasionally, this is a very tasty and healthy recipe.

1 ripe avocado, sliced peeled and without pit
1 cup low fat or 2% milk
1/2 cup low fat vanilla Greek yogurt
2 tbs. honey
Ice to taste

This avocado Honey smoothie can be made even healthier by adding a tsp. of Chia seed to the mix.
