Guacamole

When people think of avocados, guacamole is often the first thing that comes to mind. Guacamole is a classic fan favorite of avocado lovers. It’s extremely easy to make as it requires very few ingredients and hardly any time at all to make. Love and Lemons’ “Best Guacamole” recipe is creamy and tangy. It pairs well with crackers, potatoes, tortilla chips or as a salad dressing.

Avocado Smoothie

Since avocados have a naturally thick consistency, adding it to a smoothie will bring out an especially velvety and smooth texture.

Avocados have a high amount of healthy fats and a low carbohydrate, which makes it convenient to incorporate avocados into a keto diet. You only need 3 or 4 ingredients to make Arman’s keto avocado smoothie.

If you prefer masking the avocado taste a bit in your smoothie, this recipe from wellplated.com requires just a few more ingredients. This smoothie gives you the added nutritional benefits of incorporating spinach and flaxseed meal.

Spicy Avocado Snack

Those who are fond of spicy foods will enjoy this peppery avocado snack. Adding lemon, hot sauce, and salt gives an ordinary avocado a kick and creates a delicious and filling snack.
