I am known for slicing open an avocado, removing the pit, and going at it with a spoon. Not only do I do this for a snack, but any meal might include avocado as a fuss free guest. Just yesterday morning I ate half of an avocado spooned right out of the shell for breakfast. It is coincidental that Kirbie's Cravings just posted about Avocado Egg Cups, because I had been thinking about writing on avocado for a week now. It would appear that there are others who fancy the avocado.
I love how healthy avocado is, and I feel the best on days when I eat it. I usually eat avocado as mentioned above, but every now and then I deviate and try to spruce it up and throw something else into the mix. Sometimes I…
Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on it and a sprinkling of sea salt, and maybe some lime juice
I never understood the fat-on-fat thing until I tried it. The avocado is creamy and the oil is, well, oily, and somehow it works perfectly together. Add a little salt to the mix and it’s even tastier. This actually looks very pretty if you plate it properly.
Dice it up and throw it into salad
A popular option, as it brightens up any salad dish and lends a satisfying creaminess to an otherwise bland salad consisting of all roughage.
I like mine extra spicy, and hold the tomatoes! I don’t usually use a recipe, but I have tried this one before and liked it. I always eat guacamole with raw vegetables and steak or chicken for dipping.
Blend up an Avocado Milkshake
I blend avocado, ice, vanilla extract, and milk in a blender. It sounds strange, but it is delicious, I promise! Sometimes I transfer the mixture to Popsicle trays for a healthy alternative to a summer treat. If you would like it even sweeter, add some honey or raw agave nectar.
Cover it in Cholula
Am I strange for doing this? I love making anything spicy, and Cholula is the perfect way to do just that. I could drink this stuff.
Have you tried any of these avocado ideas? What do you do with your avocado?
