I have been asked by several people if I know any great avocado recipes and my response is YES! I absolutely love them and I eat nearly one a day. Because I don’t want to get bored, I’ve tried and discovered many new ways of enjoying avocados.

14 Simple and Delicious Avocado Recipes:

  1. Avocado, Tomato and Chickpea Salad with fresh coriander, olive oil, lime juice, garlic, chilli, salt and pepper
  2. Avocado and Lime Smoothie- made with cucumber, spinach, lime, avocado, stevia and ice
  3. Layered Avocado on toast/ wholemeal rice crackers, sprinkled with cracked pepper and sea salt, topped with freshly grown alfalfa sprouts.
  4. Mash chickpeas and avocado mixed with fresh spinach, garlic, tahini, parsley, salt and pepper wrapped in a rice-paper rolls.
  5. Creamy Avocado Dressing with avocado, olive oil, fresh parsley, garlic, lime, stevia, apple cider and water topped on any of your favourite salads. Taste especially amazing with asparagus, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives and feta!
  6. Easy Avocado Pancake– 60g chopped avocado (about 3/4 of an avocado), 1/4 cup almond flour (or any flour you like will do, about 30g, even pea protein or vanilla vegan protein will work great), 14g chia seeds (or 1 egg (non-vegan) or 2 egg whites (low cal and low fat)), unsweetened vanilla almond milk or water, baking powder, stevia and cinnamon. Add 1/2 tsp. coconut oil to pan and cook! serve with Natvia (granulated stevia) on top (low cal and Low fat option), almond butter or even coconut butter!

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a stove top gently (If you’re not sure how to do it, click here), before using it, wait till it has cooled
  2. Add all your ingredients into your food processor or high speed blend (like this one) and and blend until everything has nicely combined.
