Are avocados good for you?
Avocado is technically a fruit that is high in nutrients and offers a lot of health benefits, however, are avocados good for you?
Unlike most fruits that are high in carbohydrates, avocado is high in healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals, all of which promote health and boost your immune system.
Many studies have shown that frequent consumption of avocado can lead to better nutrient absorption and a low body mass index compared to those who don’t eat them.
How to cut an avocado?
A lot like a peach or a plum, avocados have a huge singular seed in the very center of it. This pit may cause big difficulty when you are trying to cut the fruit open. Unlike a plum or peach, you don’t want the whole exterior of the avocado to the consumer. When you are eating this fruit, you have to remove the pit and then peel to enjoy the internal green flesh of the avocado. It is very important to know how you must cut this fruit to don’t waste any part of it. Read more here!
How to freeze avocado?
Buying avocados… sometimes they’re unripe, overripe, or just taste bad. To make sure you always have good ones, learn how to freeze an avocado!
The supermarket usually does not have ready-to-eat avocados all the time. Sometimes they are sold out just when you want them, or they have avocados but they are green and rock hard. This is why it makes sense to know how to freeze avocado.
Frozen avocados are great for adding to smoothies, desserts, sauces, and guacamole. It takes out some of the difficulty of not being able to obtain a ripe avocado right when you need it. Read how to freeze avocado here!

This avocado milk doesn’t have a strong avocado flavor – pretty mild and very versatile. I have used vanilla extract in this recipe so my recipe is perfumed heavily with vanilla than avocado. If you don’t want vanilla extract, you can skip it.

Green detox smoothie:
I love this easy and delicious Green Detox Smoothie. It has lots of minerals and vitamins to help you on a health or weight loss journey.
Drinking green detox smoothies ensure that you consume more nutrients and live enzymes in a meal than you may eat for days. It can be difficult to cook and eat so many different vegetables, especially on those busy workdays.
A quick green smoothie will help you get a huge load of nutrients to start your day. I also sometimes drink this for lunch as a midday recharge.

Avocado lime popsicles:
A smooth and creamy avocado lime popsicle is just made with creamy banana, avocado, coconut cream, and lime for rich and flavorful treats.
I love popsicles that are creamy because they remind me of my childhood love for what we called ‘fudge’ in Jamaica. They were more like ice cream made into popsicles.
Last summer, my son Daevyd requested lots of popsicles, so I made them in many different flavors. They were healthy and better than the sugar-laden ones in the grocery stores.
Vegan broccoli salad:
Take plain old broccoli to the next level with this Vegan Broccoli Salad. It is made of roasted broccoli florets, with a creamy avocado basil dressing.
It is a great salad for detoxing, especially for someone on phase 1 of the candida diet (omit maple syrup). I enjoyed the combination of broccoli with creamy avocado and the crunchy sunflower seeds. This salad was very enjoyable, and can’t wait to make it again.
These were some of the top recipes you can make out of avocado and enjoy treats like never before.
