The Sweet Avocado
Who knew you could turn our beloved avocado into something sweet! Start by coating the two avocado halves with coconut oil, then grilling them for around 2 minutes or so until they are nice and toasty. In a bowl, mix chopped mango, unsweetened shredded coconut, and macadamia nuts together. Spoon this lovely mixture into the two avocado halves and drizzle extra coconut oil on top should you so desire. Then go to town on it with a spoon!
The Tex-Mex Avocado
We love a little Tex-Mex and avocados are perfect for the job! Try combining black beans, red onion, corn, queso fresco, and a dash of your favorite hot sauce in a bowl. Mix together and scoop into your two avocado halves! The Tex-Mex avocado leaves lots of room for experimentation too, so you can really personalize the mixture to your taste buds! Other yummy additions to try include taco seasoning, fresh garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, white beans, and jalapeños. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
The Venetian Avocado
This one is a total favorite because its so light and always delicious in the summer! Not surprisingly, avocados go super well with Italian food! Start by chopping up tomato and mozzarella and tossing it in a bowl with fresh basil, olive oil, salt and pepper. You can add balsamic or other seasonings if you like, but even if you keep the recipe simple, it still tastes like heaven! Scoop into the two halves of avocado and enjoy this take on an Italian classic!
