Berry Banana Avocado Smoothie

Berry Avocado Smoothie from 10 superfoods recipes

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

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.
