Try This: Creamy Vitamin-Rich Smoothie

By Paige Rhodes

Try this quick and delicious smoothie recipe. 


After the holidays, it’s not uncommon to feel a bit sluggish. When I feel this way, a regimen of smoothies or juices tend to be the way to go in order to jumpstart healthier habits. Smoothies are a quick and easy way to create a super healthy meal on the go. In this particular recipe, I love the creaminess that the avocados contribute, and avocado pairs very well with the flavor of mango and honey. If you’re feeling a bit blah going into the new year after all of the cake, carbs, and cocktails that come with the holidays, then this vitamin-rich smoothie should give you a nice pick-me-up!
