Avocado smoothies are a delicious and healthy way to start your day, but it's important to be mindful of how often you should be consuming them.

Generally speaking, you shouldn't have more than one or two avocado smoothies a week, as they can be high in saturated fat and calories.

If you're looking for a healthier alternative, opt for plant-based milks or use less avocado for a lighter blend.

With that said, an occasional avocado smoothie can make for an indulgent treat - just make sure to enjoy them in moderation!
