AVOCADO-PINEAPPLE SMOOTHIE

This recipe gets sweet, anise-like flavor thanks to fennel.

“When frozen and added to smoothies, avocado yields a creamy, thick texture not unlike banana, but without the sugar,” says New York City-based recipe developer Julia Gartland. The fresh ginger also helps boost digestion.
