80--- Avo Grapefruit Smoothie

Where you live is it too hot to eat?  If so then it is certainly too hot to cook.  But you still need to give your bod some fuel!  Smoothie time! This one tastes like California.

Avocadoes are great little fruits.  They pack a punch of nutrients, but also fat and calories.  The fat they contain is mostly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, both are good for you!  Use in healthy moderation.

Avo Grapefruit Smoothie
Serves 2

1/2 avocado, flesh sliced (leave the seed in the other half and store wrapped in refrigerator)
1 small red grapefruit, rind cut off and fruit sliced (seeds removed also)
1/2 cup grapefruit juice
1/2 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt (for some protein)
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 cup ice
1/2 cup baby spinach leaves

Place all ingredients into a blender.  Blend until smooth, adding more ice or juice as needed to adjust consistency.  Pour into two small glasses and enjoy!
