Beyond the Toast-- Alternative Ways to Get Your Avocado Fix

The avocado is arguably summer's favorite fruit (right after watermelon). Not only are avocados yummy, but they are loaded with potassium, omega 3's and fiber. Everybody loves the popular avocado toast, but having that every day has got to get old at some point. The ways you can incorporate avocados into your diet are endless, and to prove it, here are some fun and tasty creations you can try when you're craving something new.

Baked Egg in Avocado:

This recipe is super simple and super tasty for a quick grab and go breakfast. Simply halve an avocado and crack an egg into it, add toppings of your choosing, and bake!

Avocado Smoothie:

Avocados are the perfect ingredient for any summer smoothie. They're very creamy so they add to the texture, and have a taste that's subtle but wont overpower the other ingredients.

Avocado Brownies:

If you like fudgey brownies, then adding avocado to your batter is just the thing for you! Not only are avocado brownies healthier, because you need less butter, but a lot of people actually prefer the taste and texture.

Avocado Egg Salad:

Another way to lighten up a summer staple. Incorporating avocados into your egg salad instead of mayo is a great way to eat better and smarter.

Avocado Pesto:

Who doesn't love pesto in the summer time? Adding avocado to your pesto enhances the flavor and creaminess of the sauce, taking an already yummy dish to the next level.

Fried Avocado

If you're a huge fan of avocado in its own glory, fried avocado is a fun, crispy snack to enjoy at any time of day. It's so simple to make, and is a healthy alternative to other fried foods.

These are only a few ways to enjoy summer's (2nd favorite?) fruit, but when it comes to incorporating avocados into your diet, the possibilities are endless! Even if you aren't a fan of the avocado, I hope after reading some of these recipes you are inspired to give it a shot!
