I love guacamole just as much as the next person, but a guacamole smoothie didn’t sound that appetizing for whatever reason. Glad I gave it a blend because it turned out great.
This smoothie gave me an outlet for all my beautiful organic heirloom tomatoes, I could only make so much gauc.
This is my first smoothie with tomatoes so I’m going to touch on their health benefits. First, heirloom tomatoes come in many different shapes and sizes and almost always taste better than their conventional counterparts. The better taste is a sign of more nutrition.
Heirloom tomatoes are rich in the carotenoid lycopene, which gives the tomato its bright color and plays a role in the prevention of a number of cancers, including prostate, cervical, breast, lung, and skin. They’re also high in vitamins C, great for a number of bodily functions such as supporting your immune system and gobbling up free radicals.
The health benefits don’t stop there. Heirloom tomatoes offer cardiovascular protection via their high amounts of potassium and are a good source of vitamin K, required to build strong, healthy bones.
The best way to describe this is runny guacamole. Although, you can adjust the consistency pretty easily by using more or less water. It was quite filling, due to the avocado, which is how I like it. Next time I make this I’ll probably add cayenne pepper to spice it up. Enjoy!
