Avocado toast has been having a moment for quite sometime now. And it's nothing to scoff at, as the fruit is dubbed a superfood high in protein content, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, potassium, and a ton of vitamins. But don't forget, avocados can be enjoyed in various other ways as well.
“Using avocado as a base makes these deviled eggs a little healthier and (I think) a lot tastier. Terrific party food!” notes Blogger and photographer Erin Gleeson .
“Even though guacamole is a summer staple, avocados are in their peak season through fall,” says Claire Thomas of The Kitchy Kitchen
. “And if you don’t feel like heating up the grill, mixing the avocado with the mango salsa makes a killer guacamole.”
An alternative to fries never looked so good. These ones use coconut flakes for a breadcrumb-like consistency. This recipe comes from Jessica Goldman Foung, the blogger behind Sodium Girl.
“The great thing about this pudding—besides its immensely rich texture and chocolate flavor—is that it’s naturally sweetened with dates.” This is the recipe from the Minimalist Baker
team, Dana and John Schultz.
“This dip is thick, creamy, and flavorful. The feta cheese adds the perfect amount of saltiness and blends in with the avocado perfectly!” says Two Peas and Their Pod blogger Maria Lichty.
“This salad is creamy, bright, fresh, and oddly hearty at the same time," notes Gina Matsoukas, founder of Running to the Kitchen.
An innovative take on the French classic, blogger Katie Higgins uses healthy ingredients like nut milk, uncut stevia, and avocado.
