5 Top Avocado Dessert Recipes
This week I wanted to feature one of my favorite fruits (yes it is a fruit!)… Avocados!
We love avocados.
Avocados were actually Aidalyn’s first food. I picked it because it was a good source of healthy fats along with some carbs (very similar to the make-up of breastmilk).
Our bodies need fat. Along with coconut oil and butter, avocado is a good source of healthy fats.
Have your heard the great news? Eating Fat doesn’t make you fat (cue the choir singing “Hallelujah”).
To ripen an avocado, you can place in a paper bag with an apple or a banana to speed up the process. I keep my avocados on my counter to ripen. Once they reach the desired ripeness, I move them into the fridge.
To keep your cut avocado from turning brown, keep the flesh with the seed. The seed will help prevent the flesh from oxidizing.
Avocados aren’t only good to eat, you can use them as a moisturizing natural facial mask.
Here are some facts about Avocados you may not know:
Avocados have more potassium than a banana
Avocados have 4 grams of protein per fruit
You can sub avocado for butter in most baked recipes
Because Avocados are such a wonderful food to eat, why not eat them for dessert? Avocados can be part of a low carb and sugar free diet. Here are some recipes that may help you get started eating some delicious avocados.
