Savoury Green Smoothie

This savoury smoothie recipe breaks the typically sweet high carb.  

Avocado provides most of the energy in form of monounsaturated fat along with heaps of vitamins B5 and E, folate, copper and potassium.  The broth (or bouillon) adds vitamin A and sodium.  

Spinach and cilantro add vitamins A and K1 along with folate while the onion, lemon, garlic, salt and pepper flakes round out this unique flavour sensation.
