A universal fruit, the avocado has many health purposes. Sometimes referred to as one of the super-foods because of it’s high nutritional content, this fruit is high in protein.
Making it a good option if you are a vegetarian, or you want to try out different food dishes using avocados. As well as a DIY hair or face mask that can be hydrating, especially if you suffer from dry skin or dry hair.
In the beginning, I was never a huge fan of avocados. The texture of it was disgusting to me, and I could never imagine myself eating avocados in a million years. Even when I would go out to different restaurants, I would never order guacamole or any other food dish that contained avocados.
But since starting my healthy eating journey a few weeks back, things have changed. By doing my research, I realized that there are other ways to make them delicious. In a way that I could still eat them, but not find them nasty.
Learning About Smoothies
Hands down, I would have to say that my number one way to eat avocados is in a smoothie. I find that using an avocado with the rest of my ingredients, gives my smoothie a very creamy consistency. Almost as if I was drinking a milkshake, but without the sugar and unhealthy fat.
How I make My Avocado Smoothie
To make my avocado smoothie, I like using ingredients like kale, spinach, honey, chia seeds, almond milk, and a variety of berries that include (blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries). As well as on the side note, I eyeball everything as I go along since I never measure anything. So hopefully you all do not get confused as I talk about how I make this smoothie.
I pour my almond milk in the blender.
I add in my spinach or kale along with whatever berries I am using for the smoothie.
I then add my chia seeds, honey, ice and a little bit of apple cider vinegar.
Blend everything up until it is a smooth consistency and done. Smoothie is complete, and now it is time to pour me a glass.
So when comes to avocados or any foods you are not a fan of, try different ways to use them. Because you never know what you like or don’t like until you give it a try.
