For a cleansing alternative to your morning coffee, this ultralight smoothie combines avocado’s healthy monounsaturated fats with green tea’s anti-inflammatory actions.

Add grated ginger to boost digestion and increase circulation. If you can’t find matcha, grind green tea leaves in a spice mill or coffee grinder.
