Smooth and satiny… not to mention delicious! I’m sure the picture is just a leeetle giveaway to this secret ingredient!

Ingredients

  • 2 Scoops Herbalife Formula 1 (any flavour!)
  • 1/2 a ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup water/milk/soymilk.. or more, if your blender is struggling
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 2 Tbsp. yoghurt
  • Drizzle of honey
  • Pecans to garnish (I used all mine in all the muffins, hence the cinnamon substitute)

Blend all the above, then get your most efficient spoon/knife/finger to scrape the dreamy creaminess out the blender.

Did you know“s about the ‘vos

  • Avos contain ALL of the 18 essential amino acids that allow the body to form a complete protein. Added bonus – the protein found in avocados are easily absorbed by the body because they also contain fibre.
  • The good sh** – healthy fats, namely HDL, a type of cholesterol that actually helps regulate triglyceride levels and protects against free radical damage. Vo fats (omega-3) also protect against heart disease.
  • Vo’s are an excellent source of carotenoids (often associated with red and orange foods.. carrot..carotenoid…). So yes, they will help you see in the dark.
  • Another anti-inflammatory champion!
  • Avo’s are also know as alligator pears – how eyeomatopoeic! Gator pears they are!
