Brain-Boosting Avocado Smoothie | Omega

Looking for a treat that's also brain fuel? Try this sweet take on avocados.

This simple green smoothie features a secret brain-boosting ingredient: avocado.

Unlike many other fruits and vegetables, avocados contain healthy unsaturated fats that help keep your brain cell membranes flexible and protect nerve cells. As a bonus, avocados create a creamy, silky smooth texture much like soft serve ice cream.
