    This Energizing Smoothie Is Packed with Nutrients

    Rich, nutrient-packed avocados not only give this smoothie a smooth taste boost, but they also boast a load of good-for-you potassium, B vitamins, and magnesium—all important for women as they enter their sixties. And the banana, a smoothie staple, ups the quotient even further.

    TIPS:

    • If you find this smoothie a bit rich or heavy, sip some, then refrigerate the rest for later. When ready for more, give it a great shake and sip away.
    • Mix up the banana with mango or pineapple or another favourite fruit. Add a good quality unflavoured protein powder, available under various labels.
