If avocados are awesome, then avocado recipes are even awesomer (yes, I’m reinventing words — avocados are inspiring). Because, truly, what is an avocado if not an insanely delicious vehicle for healthy fats and tons of nutrients. Plus a darn good excuse to eat tortilla chips.
But do not be fooled by the avocado’s simple beauty. An avocado is obviously quite tasty by itself, but it’s also the perfect recipe enhancer. And I don’t just mean for dips and dressings (though we have recipes for lots of those below) — we’re talking smoothies, popcicles, muffins, salads, breakfast. The whole shebang.
Seriously, is there anything an avocado can’t do? Well, ripen on an even remotely discernible schedule, but that’s a topic for another day.
So explore our treasure trove of avocado recipes below and give one a try today (preferably right after your avocados ripen but before they turn brown — you probably have a 30-minute window sometime around 4pm, mmkay?).
