    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.
