Default Avocado Recipes

I have this silly calendar that says today is National Avocado Day in the US. The end of July is apparently the peak of the avocado growing season in California, and avocado consumption has skyrocketed in the last ten years or so due to it's reputation as being a healthy food. My sister, who has gastric paresis and multiple food allergies, eats several avocados a week, since they are one of the few foods she can tolerate. I don't eat them as often as that, but they are one of my favorite foods. When I was a kid growing up, my Mom would serve avocados as a side dish, but only on special occasions like Christmas and Easter. They would be just peeled and sliced, but I loved them even then.

Nowadays, I could live on a good guacamole! Aside from that and slicing them into sandwiches and salads, I'm wondering if anyone has a quick and easy recipe that uses avocados as the main ingredient?

Cut the avocados in half, remove the seed and spoon the flesh from the skin.
Mash the flesh in a bowl.
Add the lemon juice, some pepper and sea salt and mix well.
Spread the avocado spread on a whole-grain sandwich, cracker, or toasted bread.
put a fried egg on top

I love avocados- I wish two things, however. 1. They weren't so expensive. and 2. I wish they wouldn't go from rock hard to brown mush is 45 seconds.


One fave way that I like to eat them is in a spinach salad. Baby spinach, sliced avocado, and honey dijon dressing.

delicious chocomousse ... with avocado



2 ripe avocados, without skin and kernel
1 cup (240 ml) coconut milk (or unsweetened almond milk, hazelnut milk ...)
6 to 8 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, to taste
4 to 8 tablespoons (choice: agave syrup, honey, maple syrup ...)

Mix all ingredients into a creamy chocolate mousse in a powerful high-speed blender, or using a hand blender or food processor.

I went out of town shortly after posting this thread, and am just getting caught back up. I'm excited to try the suggestions here!

So lucky to live in Florida now as Florida avocados are monstrously HUGE and fairly inexpensive compared to the Haas avocados.

And since I'm Indonesian, we put avocado chunks in Indonesian iced coffee (a sweet drink). You can blend it together to make a smoothie or serve over crushed ice. You can even add chocolate syrup to it!

Vivienne- that sounds interesting! You are so lucky to get avocados inexpensively. Up here they are usually about $2 apiece for a small Haas and then ya gotta pray that it is ripe just when you need it
