Creamy Avocado Smoothie

This avocado smoothie features coconut water. It’s a great hydrating smoothie for these hot summer days. Coconut water is found in young green coconuts before it matures and is replaced with coconut meat. It is great to drink plain after a long, sweaty workout because it has electrolytes like sodium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorous. It also has carbohydrates that can help you recover after exercising. I like coconut water in the smoothie because it gives it a nice tropical flavor and pairs well with mango and mint. I know you may be thinking avocado in a smoothie is weird, but I promise it makes the creamiest and most refreshing smoothie! Plus I threw a bit of Siggi’s into this recipe!
