Hola mi gente!
As a woman I struggle with my weight very often. Just recently recovering from surgery to remove a tumor I am eager to eat and live better. The problem is I am a foodie and only like to eat things that I will enjoy and not keep me wanting more. I figured changing my eating habits would be a start until I am strong enough to work out and also start wearing a faja.
Today I will share with you one of the shakes I drink for lunch. Now I hate anything banana, but this recipe is actually very tasty. So I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do and I also hope this gives you a little push to eat healthier and live a healthier lifestyle. This Avocado Strawberry smoothie is creamy and tastes like a dessert more than anything else, but in reality it’s a powerhouse of vitamins and nutrients. The avocado in this blend allows the body to more easily absorb all of the vitamins and nutrients from the banana and strawberries. This recipe is high in fiber and heart healthy fat and can act as either a weight loss tool, or a part of a healthy weight gain diet. Coupled with a meal, this can definitely serve as a healthy way to drink extra calories; eaten by itself (in place of a meal) it can also help with weight loss efforts because the healthy fats will fill you up and hold off your appetite. Either way, this is a creamy, fruity treat that tastes more like a guilty treat than a healthy diet choice.
What You Need
¼ Cup milk
¾ Cup plain or vanilla yogurt
1 Whole banana
1 ½ Cup frozen strawberries
¼ tsp Vanilla extract
What You Do
Pour the milk onto the blades of the blender, followed by the yogurt. If you want a thinner consistency, add more milk. Add the peeled banana and avocado, and then blend the mixture. When the mix is completely blended, add the frozen strawberries and blend until smooth.
