The holidays are all about the cookies and treats and heavy comfort foods. If your body feels a little overwhelmed by it all, refresh with this delightful low carb smoothie. Wondering why that avocado is in there? Because it helps give the smoothie a thick consistency while keep the carb count low. You won’t taste it. My kids had no clue that the green stuff was in there!
