A study published a couple of years ago suggests that the thicker your smoothie, the more satiating it is (i.e., the more staying power it has, helping you feel satisfied for hours). So a smoothie that’s thick enough to eat with a spoon is bound to keep you fuller longer. This one gets its richness and creaminess from avocado, which also provides fiber and heart-healthy fats to keep you full.
