Berry Banana Avocado Smoothie

Berry Avocado Smoothie from 10 superfoods recipes

Try healthy fruit smoothies for breakfast or a snack. — Tim Hill/Alamy

Reprinted with permission from The 10 Things You Need to Eat by Dave Lieberman and Anahad O'Connor (2010 William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers).

Berry Banana Avocado Smoothie

"Avocados are a wonderful ingredient to use in smoothies," says Lieberman. "Not only do they add all their heart-healthy properties to the drink, but they also create the creamiest, smoothest smoothies without your having to use any cream or other saturated fats."

1 cup frozen blueberries, strawberries or other berries

1 banana

 ½ large Hass avocado, pitted and peeled

1 tablespoon honey

¾ cup skim milk, rice milk or soy milk

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
