Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Most people think of smoothies as a sweet treat, as most are packed with fruits. Savory smoothies can be just as satisfying, and offer a ton of nutrients with less of a sugar load. Cilantro is one of the best foods to have in the morning to naturally lower your blood-pressure. The addition of a heart-healthy oil and avocado helps the body better abosorb the Vitamins A, C, E, and K found in the assortment of vegetables, plus lycopene (a powerful anti-oxidant in the carotenoid family) from the tomatoes.
