Avocados

Rich in vitamins and minerals, avocados are often considered a perfect food. Each avocado contains a surprising 4 grams of protein; that’s more than any other fruit! Plus, avocados contain the highest concentrations of monounsaturated fats among all fruits, compounds that are essential to healthy brain development. To include avocado in your NutriBlast, cut the fruit in half, twist so that the halves separate, remove the pit, and scrape out the green flesh from the rind.

Selection Process

Choose firm but tender avocados with no soft spots. Ripe avocados will have a consistent, slightly soft exterior. Avoid avocados with blemishes, broken skin, or dents.
