Avocados are a nutrition powerhouse! Not only are they packed with vitamins, but compared to other fruits they are higher in protein and lower in sugar. They are also a great source of fiber and full of monounsaturated (“good”) fats which are great for your heart health. Avocados are a great addition to a lot of recipes to make them extra creamy and smooth (perfect for smoothies!).
This recipe makes about 6 cups. You may want to cut the recipe down or just throw in a little of everything and adjust it to your own taste!
Blend the following ingredients in a blender until smooth. Enjoy!
1/2 fresh pineapple, peeled
1 small avocado, pitted and peeled
1/2 bunch kale
small handful fresh mint or cilantro
2-3 cups coconut water, or filtered water

I have this (dairy free) vegan Caesar salad dressing recipe memorized because I make it every week for Johny. You probably know that I transitioned to a nutrient-dense, whole food, plant strong diet when I got sick with EBV (Epstein Barr Virus), Lyme disease, and...
Vegan Scalloped potatoes! These are Ah-Mazing and Delicious! Usually, scalloped potatoes and the world "healthy" aren't in the same sentence! But these are dairy free and only nutrient-dense whole foods go into the dish! (They are a bit high in fat so this is not a...
