Avocado Mojito Smoothie

This seemingly random combination of ingredients actually works to make a delicious and nutritious pick-me-up! If you like melon and you like avocado, you will love this licuado.  The coconut water, lime juice and mint give it a mojito vibe. This smoothie is a great way to get your healthy fat in from the avocado, as well as boosting your new habit of having more fruits and veggies every day.

Treat it as a satisfying elixir after-work or after-work-out!

We love this avocado smoothie because it’s great for breakfast too!  You can also turn it into a mid-day  meal by pairing it with protein.  It goes  nicely with a tuna salad, or tuna tacos, or you can keep it simple by making yourself a fresh ensaladilla with lettuce, tomato, and purple onion, dressed with a light olive oil vinaigrette.  With the olive oil and the avocado you’ve got your healthy fats covered.  And with a crisp, fresh salad with a little protein you are well on your way to treating your body right, Comadres!

Getting into the habit of adding healthy smoothies like this to your day will make it that much easier to live a healthier and satisfying life. Look for other De Las Mías smoothies and licuados in our La Cocina section and enjoy!

¡Andale!  You deserve to take care of yourself!

¡Buen Provecho!
