Chocolate Mint Smoothie
This smoothie tastes like an indulgent dessert in a glass but is packed with nutrition. The avocado adds healthy monounsaturated fats, which are healthy for cancer survivors. The oats provide fiber and bulk to keep you full and promote healthy bowel movements. The almond milk and peanut butter provide protein to promote healing after cancer treatments. Try this smoothie as a healthy dessert or afternoon snack and you won’t be disappointed.
