8 Healthy Avocado Recipes You Can Make in 10 Minutes
Avocados are both creamy and buttery but minus the cholesterol and toxicity of dairy. Avocados are probably one of the only fruit that combine the protein of meat, fat of butter, vitamins and minerals of green vegetables and a nutty flavor.
From balancing blood sugar to improving digestion, there’s no denying that avocado boasts a myriad of health benefits.
If you need more avocado in your life, then check out these 8 versatile ways to use this fat-filled fruit for greater health and wellbeing.
Baked Egg in Avocado
Easy, quick, and healthy, this recipe is the kind of simple that can’t really be improved. Rich in omega fatty acids, protein and fiber, while low in sugar, this is a great breakfast to kick-start your day. Even better, these are equally suited for solo dining or made in batches, no sharing necessary.
Avocado and Egg Breakfast Pizza
Pizza for breakfast? Yes, please! Whole-wheat Naan bread or other flatbread makes a great hearty base for a breakfast pizza. Top with avocado mash and an egg cooked any style. Throw on some extra veggies (like arugula and tomato) for even more flavor and nutrients.
Cucumber Avocado Rolls
Stuck for a snack or need a quick potluck dish? Just whip up an avocado spread, smear it across a slice of cucumber, roll up and sprinkle with paprika and your cucumber avocado roll are ready. Time for mini mouth explosions!
Mayo-Free Avocado Chicken Salad
No need for mayo in this chicken salad. Mashed avocado and mustard bind a combo of lean chicken breast and chopped veggies (choose whichever ones you like!). Serve on whole-grain bread or crackers.
While it seems like an unorthodox combination, avocados actually make a fantastic pasta sauce too. Combined with lemon, garlic, olive oil, and basil, it’s like a healthier (and greener) version of the classic alfredo sauce. Use whole-wheat pasta and add some extra veggies to the mix to make it even healthier.
Avocado Banana Milkshake
The avocado-banana and almond milk combo in this recipe makes for an extra-creamy and decadent smoothie appropriate for breakfast or dessert. Chia seeds and almond butter add even more essential nutrients like magnesium and iron, plus fiber and vitamin E from the almond butter. You can also use a tablespoon of honey for extra sweetness.
Grilled Chicken with Mango, Bell Pepper, and Avocado
Mashed avocado is a great substitute for less healthy mayo or a few too many slices of cheese. In this sandwich, the avocado helps hold together mango, red onion, peppers, and dandelion greens on whole-grain bread. The fiber-filled combo is sure to keep you full all afternoon long.
Avocado Deviled Eggs
Greek yogurt and avocado health-ify the filling for these deviled eggs (making them not so so devilish after all). This recipe still uses the yolks but ups the nutritional value by adding yogurt and avocado instead of mayo.
