When you think of avocado recipes, what ideas first come to your mind?

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Up until a few years ago, you may have immediately thought of guacamole or the popular avocado toast before anything else.

Certainly, these would have come to mind before more surprising avocado recipes like chocolate pudding, avocado pasta sauce, or avocado tacos.

Green Healthy Avocado Smoothie (Vegan, Keto)

Avocado Smoothie

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 the best creative avocado possibilities outside of guacamole.

Trader Joes even now sells adorable mini avocados that are about the size of a lime.

The next time you make banana ice cream, throw in half of a fresh avocado to make it extra creamy. Feel free to add some pure peppermint extract for mint chocolate chip.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Recipes

Tofu Scramble

My favorite way to eat this plant based tofu scramble is topped with a sliced avocado. Or dice the avocado and stir it right into the egg free scramble. It will be a healthy breakfast hit with both vegans and omnivores, alike.

Avocado Mayo Recipe

Avocado Mayo

Even big brands such as Kraft and Hellman’s are now offering their own versions of avocado mayonnaise in regular grocery stores. It is thick, smooth, and addictive. Spread it on top of your sandwiches, burgers, or veggie burgers.

avocado pasta

Avocado Alfredo Pasta

The avocado adds so much richness to this sauce that you’ll swear it must be full of heavy cream and butter as soon as you taste it. For a low carb paleo and keto recipe, pour the sauce over zucchini noodles or roasted vegetables instead of pasta.

avocado fries with panko bread crumbs

Baked Avocado Fries

Five ingredients are all it takes to create these easy crispy baked avocado fries, high in fiber, protein, and vitamins, with very little saturated fat.

    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.
