AVOCADO BANANA BERRY SMOOTHIE
You can throw just about anything in a smoothie to enhance its flavor such as honey, tofu, jams, any combination of fruits, peanut butter, juices, etc., but keep in mind it will effect the nutritional values.
Half a ripe avocado
1 to 1 1/2 frozen bananas
4 to 5 frozen or fresh strawberries
Splash non-fat soy or other nut milk
Whatever else strikes your fancy... Nuts, fruits, spices, etc throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until desired texture is reached.
I prefer it smooth, but some like a chewable drink. Very, very delicious! Serves: 1.

Good to Know:
Avocado is rich in magnesium that reduces risk of excess belly fat, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar- the symptoms of metabolic syndrome.
One Avocado delivers a whooping 11 grams of fiber.
1/4 avocado = 4 grams
Studies at the Smell n Taste Treatment Research Foundation in Chicago reveal that inhaling sweet scents like the arome of prickly Pear activates the brain's satiety center, reducing caloric intake enough to lose 5 pounds monthly.
