Growing up, I was a girl who never liked to try anything new. If you set something in front of me that I was unfamiliar about — I would push it away and turn my nose up at it.
The older I got however, I began to branch out and try new things. One of those things is Avocados. It has become one of my absolute favorite go to healthy fats. I eat it on burgers, in guacamole, chopped up in a salad, and I use it in desserts as well.
Here are 5 of my favorite uses for Avocado:
Use avocados in place of butter in desserts
By using avocados in place of fats in a dessert dish, like brownies for instance, then you can cut the calories. It adds a delicious flavor, but helps you stay healthy.
Create delicious salad dressings
You can create homemade dressings right in your kitchen by adding avocado to some regular pantry items.
Avocados are great to smooth your skin and make masks for your face.
Chopping Up Avocado for salads
By chopping up avocados, you can add them to salads in place of oils and such to give that yummy healthy fat that you need.
Make Yummy Dips
One of the first dips I ever ate when I had avocado was guacamole. That is what got me started. I used Avocados from Mexico and everyone ranted and raved about how good my guacamole dish was.
