10 ways to eat an avocado (that aren't guacamole!)

Happy National Avocado Day!


You probably love avocado in the form of guacamole (so much so that you're willing to pay extra for it at Chipotle). Or you like to slice it and put on toast for breakfast. Both delicious options but there is *so* much more you can do with the versatile fruit. You can even make fries with it. Yes, fries! Here are some tasty and creative recipes that take your avocado game to the next level. 

Cucumber avocado rolls
These super easy and super healthy rolls are the perfect after school snack. 

Avocado pasta salad
Pass the pasta, please. This salad is made with creamy avocado pieces and homemade avocado dressing, and topped with fresh cherry tomatoes and bacon bits.  

Avocado chocolate mousse
Avocado and chocolate? It may sound like a bad combo but the result is a rich and creamy chocolate mousse that you definitely won't regret making. 

Pineapple and avocado smoothie
This healthy breakfast smoothie is great to drink on the go, or on a hot day as an alternative to soda. 

Baked avocado with egg
Meet the new avocado toast. It looks like a complicated dish but only takes five ingredients and is so Insta-worthy.

Crispy baked avocado fries
A healthy version of fries that are crispy on the outside and amazingly delicious and soft on the inside? You can't go wrong there. 

Zucchini noodles with creamy avocado pesto
It tastes as good as it sounds. Yummy homemade zuccinni noodles with a fresh avocado pesto, that can be enjoyed hot or cold. 

Creamy avocado cilantro lime dressing
This citrusy and creamy dressing can be drizzled on your salad or even on meat, pasta salad or as a dip with veggies.

Avocado mozza puffs
Cute little puff pastry morsels filled with mashed avocado, fresh mozzarella cheese and salsa.  

Avocado mug cake
Cake? Yes! Cake. This five minute mug cake is a great way to use up over-ripened avocados so they don't go to waste.
