“Man Alive” Avocado Smoothie

“Man alive” was the reaction when I slurped back my newest smoothie concoction. “I can’t believe it taste so good” was the quick follow-up comment. Looking for a way to fit in your Omega-6’s? Here’s a recipe that combines all the healthy fats into one glass.

Man Alive Avocado Smoothie

  • Avocado – half or full
  • Banana
  • Spinach – fistful
  • Lime – half, juiced
  • Hemp Hearts – tsp
  • Chia Seeds – tsp
  • Almond Milk

Why Omega-6? This essential polyunsaturated fatty acid helps to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, reduce inflammation, and protect against heart disease. Want more info on heart healthy fats? Check out the Harvard School of Public Health website.
