Simply Green Smoothie

I do a lot of experimenting with smoothies both sweet and savory. A good nutrient dense smoothie makes a wonderful pick me up at any time of the day. Frequently in the busyness of the day I just want to reach into the fridge and pull out several simple ingredients and throw them into the blender and chug down the green goodness.

I always have some frozen pineapple in the freezer. I like the way it keeps the smoothie cool and adds a little sweetness. The avocado gives the smoothie a little creaminess and provides us with the fats needed to absorb the fat soluble nutrients. The result is a fairly thick smoothie depending on how much water you add.
