Though it might seem like one of the latest trends, avocados are a great source of healthy fat and a delicious way to get in your daily fruit intake. While many find that it’s best in guacamole form, there are a variety of tasty ways you can add avocado into your meals.
So if you’re looking to celebrate the national avocado day, here are a few ways to consider:
In Your Morning Smoothie
As a great way to up your daily fruit intake, avocados work well in virtually any smoothie. They add a wide variety of vitamins and essential nutrients, it also helps make your recipe creamier, and can be a suitable replacement for dairy products.
Try Stuffing Them
Are you watching your carbs but craving tacos? Use avocados as your taco shell instead! Just cut, take out the pit and stuff. You can even choose an avocado instead of toast for your favorite egg and bacon dish. Fill the avocado with the egg and bake until the white part of the egg is set. Then top with your favorite herbs and toppings.
Throw Them on The Grill
Are you looking for a new way to enjoy your burger or steak? Try grilled avocado slices. Cut your avocado in half, remove the seeds and lightly season with lemon juice and olive oil. You can then place it directly on the grill for 2-3 minutes.
Substitute Them For Fries
Craving fries but rather skip the calories? Consider making avocado fries instead. Baked or fried, you can bread the avocado for a great side option. And there is an endless amount of dipping options too, whether you favor ranch, ketchup, or a bit more spicy of a sauce, there is a vast amount of flavors that would work well.
