Feeling a little green from the all the St. Patrick’s Day festivities? Boost your energy (and possibly soothe your tummy!) with this creamy avocado smoothie.

Avocados are full of healthy fats; vitamins A, D, E, and K; B vitamins; and soluble and insoluble fibre. They are also a good source of plant-based protein. One avocado has 18 essential amino acids and 4 g of protein.

Place all ingredients in blender and whirl until smooth. Taste and add more honey, if you wish.

Serves 2.
