You hear a lot about the “good fat” in avocados, but what does that mean, exactly? The main fat in avocados is oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid also present in olive oil. Oleic acid is good for healthy skin and hair, helps reduce inflammation, and may have cancer-fighting properties. Paired with matcha, a powdered green tea with more antioxidants than any other superfood, this smooth and nutty green smoothie will help you be healthy inside and out!
