Almond and avocado protein smoothie

Almonds are rich in nutrients such as protein, fibre, vitamin E, zinc, potassium, iron, and calcium. Almond milk also contains flavonoids, which help to lower levels of "bad" cholesterol and protect the heart. Powerful antioxidants in almonds help support a strong immune system.
