When you think of avocado recipes, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Green Healthy Avocado Smoothie (Vegan, Keto)

Up until a few years ago, most people would probably have immediately thought of guacamole… and most likely no one would have ever said anything along the lines of avocado mousse or avocado frosting or avocado chocolate pie. Definitely, no one would have said avocado creme brulee.

But more and more people are now beginning to experiment with the versatile superfood fruit, and more and more blogs are offering unique avocado recipes to their readers. Restaurants are getting in on the trend as well, opening up a whole new world of avocado possibilities outside of guacamole. Trader Joes has even started selling mini avocados – they are about the size of a lime! If you find yourself with an extra avocado or two on hand and no idea how to use them up, here are nine healthy and delicious things you can do with an avocado. food-2052424_1280

    The avocado fries look incredible! I’ve always been a big fan of traditional french fries and am always on the lookout for new and innovative version of fries.

  2. Cait says

    I love avocado sooo much, even just on its own with a little salt, pepper and lemon.
    When I lived in Nagano city, the first Mexican restaurant to open there was kind of subpar, BUT they had these amazing avocado thick shakes made with vanilla ice cream, half an avocado and lots of chocolate syrup. I definitely recommend experimenting with your own. 🙂

    For several years now, when I have made tuna salad for sandwiches, instead of mayonnaise, I have used avocado in the form of guacamole. Yummy! Tastes great…..less filling!

  4. Cassie Autumn Tran says

    You can’t go wrong with guacamole, but these recipes add the perfect twists! Anyways, I absolutely love using avocados to top my veggie burgers and snacking on them with a spoon!

  5. Sabrina B. says

    wow, am impressed with this list, avocado fries? Alfredo avocado pasta? Chocolate avocado mousee? These are really interesting and creative use of that favorite ingredient of mine!

  6. Kat says

    Make with avacodo?
    They don’t last that long around here, lol.
    We just drizzle with lime juice, and sprinkle with pink salt and dive in with a spoon!?
    If really hungry, skip the juice and just grab the pink salt and spoon, lol.
