7 delicious ways to enjoy avocado

Oh-so-tasty ideas for your favourite creamy avo.

1. Classic guacamole

Whip up this summer entertaining staple with ripe avocado, lemon and salt. Add some coriander and chilli for extra zing.

2. Vegan mayo

Blend avocado, white vinegar, lemon juice and salt with some garlic and onion powder for an easy, yummy mayonnaise.

3. Pudding

Freeze avocado overnight then puree with frozen banana, milk (regular or dairy-free), vanilla extract and a pinch of raw cacao. Eat immediately or refrigerate for an after-dinner treat.

4. Smoothie

Blend with cashews, dates, banana or blueberries, spinach and coconut milk for a creamy drink that packs a nutrient punch.

5. Crispy fries

Slice into wedges and squeeze on some fresh lime. Season with salt and pepper then dip in flour, egg and breadcrumbs. Drizzle well with oil and bake at 200°C on a greased tray until gold and crispy.

6. Salad dressing

Combine with garlic, lemon, apple cider vinegar, water, Dijon mustard and some salt for a creamy dressing. Add a touch of nutritional yeast for a ‘cheesy’ flavour.

7. Face mask

Nourish yourself from the outside as well as within. Mix up half an avo with an egg, natural yoghurt and baking soda for a 10 minute moisturising treatment that’s great for dry and unbalanced skin.
