The avocado and flax make this a great post – workout smoothie. Not only does avocado make your smoothie thick and creamy but it also contributes a high dose of healthy, satiating fats, plus many essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients. The flax contributes a nice dose of omega-3 fatty acids, helping the body more efficiently burn fat as fuel as well as helping to reduce exercise induced inflammation.
