The avocados make this pesto so incredibly creamy, while also giving you lots of great healthy fats which will help you glow from the inside out!


Serves 2

1 ripe avocado

110g of Brazil nuts

100g of pine nuts

50g of fresh basil leaves

5 tablespoons of water

4 tablespoons of olive oil

2 tablespoons of Organic Greens Complex*

Wash all of the ingredients and simply place into a food processor and blend until a smooth pesto forms.
