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!).
