PLANT BASED MEAL PLANNER

Avocado Smoothie as Brain Fuel


This avocado smoothie recipe helps to boost your brain health and is from our Fresh Start Autumn Cleanse. The avocado contains omega-3 essential fatty acids that are vital for brain development and nerve function.

You might already know this, but in case you don’t… we love green smoothies.

They give tons of natural energy, help lose some extra pounds, and if you drink them long enough you might notice your skin starting to glow.

Green smoothies are great any time of the day, but they’re especially beneficial in the morning.

This avocado smoothie is no exception! That’s why the Fresh Start Autumn Cleanse that this recipe is from has a meal plan that recommends drinking one green smoothie every morning for 21-straight days.

This recipe has all the nutrients from its ingredients that you need to get going in the morning: protein, healthy fats, and replenishing electrolytes. The biggest superstar ingredient is avocado, and it’s the reason we call this recipe Brain Fuel Green Smoothie.

Why an avocado smoothie helps your brain

Avocados boast a lovely dose of omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are vital for brain development and nerve function. Avocados are also high in healthy fats that have been linked to lowering the risk of dementia. One study shows that people whose calories came more from fat had a reduced risk of developing dementia by roughly 44%.

It’s important to be proactive about our health. Even as adults, we can continue to develop our brains—that’s not just something for kids in school to do. There are also many families that know someone that has gone through dementia, and eating foods with health fats—like this avocado smoothie recipe—can help to reduce that risk.

Enjoy this recipe, and here’s to health bodies AND minds!
