There are many people who'll agree with me when I say that Avocado is one of the most amazing natural foods that you can buy. They have it all; a great amount of protein, fatty acids and more potassium than bananas. You can only imagine what the taste is going to be like when you throw in Pumpkin Seed Butter, Kale and Apricots! A fantastic grouping bringing together a massive amount of minerals giving boundless vitality. We think you'll agree that this fruity green combo has it all and with a taste to match.

Benefits

Antioxidants abound in this delectable detox smoothie!  The ingredients marry up perfectly to provide a powerful energy boost whilst gently neutralising free radicals which can cause oxidative stress to our bodies.  The impressive nutrient profile of this smoothie recipe boasts antioxidant vitamins A, C and E in significantly high amounts which are further supported by copper and manganese – potent antioxidant minerals.

The inclusion of avocado lends a delectable creamy texture, is packed with essential fatty acids and rich in dietary fibre.  Essential fats are necessary to metabolise fat soluble vitamins such as A and E and act as a carrier for antioxidants.  Apricots and kale are enriched with numerous health promoting phytochemicals – kale also provides an extremely healthy dose of vitamin K, this is important to bone health and promotes a strong skeletal structure. 

Finally bananas are famously high in potassium which maintains normal blood pressure whilst supporting the nervous system – all in all this smoothie really does have it all – it leaves you feeling satisfied and has a creamy rich taste whilst packing a powerful antioxidant punch!
