Avocado is the superfruit that has recently taken the world by storm. Don’t be tempted to eat it plain, there’s a huge range of meals you can create if you let your imagination go a little wild. Here are eight ideas to give you some inspiration.
If you want to cool down on a hot summer’s day but still keep healthy, there is nothing better than these avocado ice lollies. If you want to make them yourself, BBC Good Food has sorted you out with this great recipe.
Who said cake can’t be healthy? A very naughty but delicious treat is avocado cake, made easily thanks to the fruit’s creamy texture making the flesh easily worked into cake ingredients. The result is lovely and moist – no one would ever guess it’s healthy.
If you’re creating a quick and easy spread or simply want something easy to pop in your lunch box, then roll your avocado into sushi – it makes a brilliant partnership with smoked salmon.
Feeling thirsty but still want to get a superfruit into your daily intake? Worry no more, it’s really simple to blend the avocado into a thin liquid which you can then have with you on-the-go.
We’ve all heard of chunky fries, skinny fries and sweet potato fries, and now we have the newest kid on the block – avocado fries! Make these as a side to your dinner for a healthy, but delicious, alternative to your regular carbohydrate staple.
Perhaps the most well known avocado partnership is the breakfast favourite of avocado on toast. With so much goodness and nutrients, this will definitely set you up for the day.
If you want to incorporate avocado into your pasta meal but are not sure how, then what about pulping the avocado flesh into a pasta sauce? The flavour isn’t overpowering, so it will allow the rest of your ingredients to come into their own.
