2. Avocado and coconut water smoothie

Avocado smoothies with coconut water are delicious.

Coconut water is the perfect resource for fighting cholesterol.  It’s rich in the type of fatty acids that, just like avocados, promote heart health.

  • Coconut water also contains lauric acid, which is capable of increasing “good”, or HDL, cholesterol.
  • The presence of minerals like potassium or B complex vitamins and Vitamin C also make it an excellent heart protector.
  • We also can’t forget that coconut water and avocado are great for providing energy.  This makes this simple smoothie a natural source of healthy energy for starting the day in the best way possible.

Ingredients

  • 1 glass coconut water (200 mL)
  • 1/2 avocado

Directions

  • It’s important that you get real coconut water for this smoothie. We know that it’s generally sold in the supermarket in a can, but in these cases it does end up losing a large portion of vitamins and minerals.  So always use real coconut water when possible.
  • For this avocado smoothie, all you have to add to your blender is the half avocado and the coconut water. Blend and serve in your favorite glass. This is a very healthy smoothie that will help reduce your cholesterol.
