Mango Kiwi Avocado Green Smoothie

Green smoothies are a great option for those that wish to add extra fruits and veggies into their daily diet, but prefer to do so in an on-the-go fashion. I particularly love this recipe because it’s abundant with vitamin C, fiber and really everything wonderful for you! The combination of kiwis, avocados and mangoes balanced out by 2 cups of spinach make for a concoction that is not overly sweet, so it acts as a great mid-day refresher. All you truly need to make this recipe a reality is to be in possession of a blender– so have fun and try to mix things up a little bit! Comment below and share your favorite green smoothie combination.

Grilled Corn & Avocado Salad

Trust me, you’ll be crazy for this irresistible Grilled Corn & Avocado Salad too! What I love about this recipe is it’s use of fresh veggies to make a crunchy salad that at the same time makes use of warmer weather’s essential kitchen appliance– the grill. Once you’ve collected all the ingredients for this recipe, the preparation for this dish is fairly simple. After you’ve grilled the corn, you’ll only need to worry about combining all veggies in one bowl and whisking the dressing up in another to pour over the salad later. The best part? There will be only a few dishes to clean up afterwards– which will ensure that you get to enjoy your Grilled Corn & Avocado Salad more quickly than expected.
