Make a new friend: while smoothies are generally not a good idea since they introduce a lot of calories without slowing down your overall food consumption for the day, they can be delicious, and some are better than others. Blending an avocado with a bag of defrosted blueberries and a banana sounds crazy, but you end up with a creamy, delicious, sweet treat that’s packed with healthy fats to fill you up, as well as the fiber and nutrients in blueberries.
