It’s no secret that there is some major avocado obsession going on and for good reason! Avocados smooth, creamy texture and mild taste makes it a perfect food for everyone in the family. When both of my children were babies, avocados were one of their first foods due to its baby friendly texture and taste. As they’ve gotten older, it’s still one of our must-have foods that we always keep stocked up in the house. The creamy fruit is full of healthy fats, nutrients (including vitamins and minerals), fiber and phytonutrients that are so important for adults, children and especially toddlers!
We love how avocados are super adaptable for every meal through your day, including snacks and some pretty delicious, refreshing drinks (more on that later…). Adding a little avocado to your meals is such an easy way to pump up the nutrients and health of your meals. We always keep a few around to add to our meals.
One helpful hint: store avocados in the fridge until a day or two before you are ready to use. It will slow down they progression of ripening and prevent them from becoming too mushy or overripe.
The other day we had an avocado soiree and we all enjoyed lots of avocado goodness! I’d love to share some of our favorite recipes from Love One Today with you below!
Chipotle Avocado Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes
Such a fun, delicious and healthy appetizer for a party or as an after school snack! Stuff cherry tomatoes (or small tomatoes…even roma tomatoes could work) with this yummy guacamole inspired filling and enjoy. These disappeared super quickly! Recipe can be found here.
Agua Fresca De Aguacate
Such a simple and refreshing 100% fruit drink! 5 simple ingredients and no added sugar makes this a perfect drink on a warm summer or fall day. My kiddos could not get enough of this drink! Recipe can be found here.
Healthy Avocado Chicken Salad
This super simple salad is so easy, yet so tasty! Avocado is used to replace the typical mayonnaise that is used in chicken salads and gives this recipe such great flavor and makes it such a healthier option! The addition of grapes/apples, gives a sweet punch of flavor that complements the other ingredients so well!
Needless to say, we ALL enjoyed every bit of our little avocado party!
Are you as avocado obsessed as we are? What’s your favorite way to eat them? I’m always searching for new ways to enjoy them!
So many yummies recipes! Never thought to use them with chicken salad, a must try!
That avocado chicken salad looks amazing! My husband and I love avocados, but right now they are so expensive. Our kids loved them when they were babies, but won’t touch them now. Great recipes!
All those recipes sound amazing. I’m a huge fan of avocado since it is a great snack and keeps me satiated. I’m actually eating a salad with a huge hunk of avocado in it right now!
That avocado salad looks so good. I also didn’t know about putting them in the refrigerator to slow down the process great tip! !
YUM! Hooray for all the avocados! I never think to put mine in the fridge, but I definitely will be starting now!!
All of these recipes look so yummy! We’re big fans of avocado, and I always store mine in the fridge!
OK, I love all of this but my main takeaway is to store them in the fridge until a day or two before I want to eat them – HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS?? I can’t tell you how many avocados I’ve thrown away over the years because they get too mushy! Also, making that chicken salad for lunch today – looks AMAZING.
That drink looks so tasty! I always add avocado to my smoothies 🙂
This looks delicious! I’ve never thought of using avocado as an alternative to mayo! Love it!
Love avocados! But I never thought to use them in a drink outside of smoothies! Have to try all these recipes!
I’m obsessed with avocados and both my daughters are too! They’re just the tastiest ❤️
This sounds so yummy! I love peppers and avocado!
YUM! The stuffed tomatoes is such a great party app!
Avos are my fave!!
