Not all fat is created equal. Moderate amounts of avocado contains good fats that are great for your skin, hair, and heart. With vitamin rich mango, lowfat milk, yogurt, and lime, this smoothie is not only low in calories and full of protein, but it’s also a great skin elixir.

Avocado-Mango Smoothie

4 servings


1 medium ripe avocado

1 cup frozen mango chunks

2 cups fat free or lowfat milk

1 (8 ounce) container vanilla bean lowfat yogurt

1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint leaves

2 teaspoons lime juice

1 teaspoon lime zest

1 tablespoon agave syrup

1 cup (more or less as needed) ice cubes


Remove flesh from avocado, cut into coarse chunks, place into blender along with mango, milk, yogurt, mint, lime juice and zest, agave syrup and ice cubes. Process until smooth. Pour smoothie into tall glasses and serve.
