Tired of watery protein shakes? I have the perfect solution– Avocado. The avocado helps give the shake a thick, smooth, almost silky consistency and it really helps the ingredients bind together. You’ll notice the flavor just a little too, but mainly the avocado influences the texture.
And let’s not overlook the fact that the addition of avocado to your protein shake adds all kinds of nutritional value including healthy fats and nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling healthier already.
