Avocados really are a wonder of natural nutrition and should be part of your healthy diet. If they are already: congratulations! If they aren’t yet: start treating yourself regularly to different variations of Avos – as a drink, in the salad, on the bread, you can even grill it. Here are two of my favorite and very easy suggestions how to enjoy your beloved Avocado.
For 2 Portions you need:
1 small clove of garlic
herbs (here: thyme)
salt & pepper
your favorite bread, 2-3 slices or a bread bun
Squash the Avocado with a fork, dribble some olive oil and lime juice over it. Mix with some tiny chopped garlic (if you have a date, this is optional ) and season with pepper and salt. Spread on you favorite bread and sprinkle with herbs and pepper.
For 2 Portions:
1 handful of Baby Spinach leaves
Water according to you favorite texture of the smoothie
Put in a blender and mix well.
If you would love some more creaminess, add a teaspoon peanut-/macadamia-/almondbutter, for the tropical twist a teaspoon coconut butter.
If you would like less creaminess, only take 1/2 Avocado.
Peach, Apricot, Kaki or Mango add some special taste – try it out, the recipe is the perfect “base” for your green smoothie.
– Avos are rich in fat – but don’t worry, it’s mainly Omega-3, which is supposed to be good for you and your cholesterol level
– they contain loads of Vitamin A and E
– and Alpha- and Beta Carotin, Biotine
– due to their fat enhance the resorption of fat-soluble vitamins (Vit. A, D, E, K)
