Immune Boosting Green Avocado Smoothie

The Shepard Avocado variety is now in season. They have a nuttier flavour and a firmer, more yellow flesh than the Hass variety, making them an attractive addition to salads, sliced on toast or in a healthy green smoothie. Their flesh also maintains its bright yellow-green and doesn’t brown after being cut.

Avocados are an all-round health star. Their unique combination of vitamins and minerals can help keep your immune system fighting fit, boost energy, enhance brain power, build bone, aid gut health, support healthy skin and can even put you in a better mood.

A good source of folate, they also help support a healthy pregnancy and their smooth, creamy texture makes them an ideal first food for babies.
