We have written a lot about avocados over the years. And they have appeared in several of our recipe blogs, but they’ve never had their own. That’s surprising given that they are a great source of healthy fat and fiber.
National Avocado Day is coming up. We want to celebrate with delicious avocado recipes that are perfect from breakfast to dinner and starter to dessert. We think you’ll love these fun, low-carb options that will help you branch out from guacamole!
We love low-carb baking. And recipes with only four ingredients are fantastic when they taste great! This recipe is incredibly easy. It’s even easier if you use a blender to mix your batter rather than a hand mixer. It makes everything smooth very quickly. Either way, you will be left with a tasty bread you’re sure to love. A serving has 81 calories, two grams of carbs and one gram of fiber. Get the recipe.
When you see green ice cream, you assume it’s mint or pistachio. This one is avocado. Avocado might not seem like an ice cream option. But its smooth texture and high fat content make a wonderfully creamy ice cream base with a very mild flavor. This has just four basic ingredients. You can easily add cocoa powder to make it chocolate or fresh mint so the taste matches the color. A serving has 196 calories, eight grams of carbs and five grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
Avocado toast may be a favorite of the millennials, and loaded baked potatoes may be a favorite of the steakhouse. But these are going to be the new hit of your home! We rarely think about cooking with avocados; they’re usually eaten raw. These avocados are baked with an egg in the hole left by the pit when it is removed. Then it’s topped with cheese and bacon. Avocado toast will be a thing of the past as this breakfast leaves it in the dust. A serving has 412 calories, nine grams of carbs and seven grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
Bruschetta is excellent; it’s a wonderful way to eat your veggies. But the toast it comes on can be high in carbs. And depending on the size of the serving, you can eat an awful lot of bread in one sitting. That’s where this grilled avocado dish comes in. Grilled avocado has a great texture and a smoky flavor. And grill marks on veggies are always a welcome sign of the summer. Top them with tomatoes, basil, mozzarella and a balsamic dressing, and you’ll be in heaven. A serving has 216 calories, 13 grams of carbs and seven grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
We hope you enjoy these recipes and that they get you to try to cook with avocado soon! They would be perfect for celebrating National Avocado Day or any other day of the year.
