AVO-good Day! 


My Avocado & Coconut Green Smoothie

 


Hey everyone! Is anyone especially thirsty today?



 

















Keeping the body hydrated is essential to thrive at its greatest capacity. Whether its after a workout or after a night of a few adult beverages, rehydrating is essential for the organs to function at their best. After all, our bodies are 60-70 per cent water.

The key ingredient to my avo-good day smoothie is coconut water. Full of electrolytes, coconut water is nature’s Gatorade. It is also full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Next time you reach for a Gatorade, grab some coconut water instead!

I hope you enjoy this delicious (& refreshing) green smoothie!
