Banana-Avocado Smoothie

Local legend (this suco has its origins in Rio de Janeiro) claims that the combination of banana and avocado is soothing to the stomach.  And who are we to argue with local legend, especially when it’s this delicious?  Thanks to the avocado, this smoothie is high in monounsaturated fat, which can improve your cholesterol levels and may decrease your risk of heart disease.  Its high satiety value and quick preparation make it perfect for breakfasts on-the-go.
