6 awesome ways to use avocados

Avocados are known most commonly as the main ingredient in guacamole.

They are classified as a fruit and are rich in monounsaturated fat. They are also very high in potassium and can help balance your vitally important potassium-to-sodium ratio.

Avocados are fast becoming a super food.

Let’s take a look at some awesome and unique ways to use avocados.

1. Use them on your hair:

Avocados are incredibly nutritious and great for hair health.

Try our organic homemade avocado hair mask, which includes ingredients like olive oil and cinnamon.

2. Use them on your face:

Avocados are packed with fatty acids, antioxidants and minerals, which keep the skin healthy, nourished and glowing.

Try our winter glow avocado mask, which includes organic ingredients like egg whites and olive oil.

3. Substitute for mayo:

Mayonnaise is packed with saturated fats, which can clog your arteries.

Mash an avocado as it makes a great healthy substitute for mayo.

4. Use avocado oil:

Avocado oil is a delicious way to dress your salads. It helps our bodies absorb carotenoids, which turn into potent antioxidants, according to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition.

5. Bake an egg into one:

This is a great breakfast recipe, because it contains healthy fats and nutrients that can help you start the day off right. Simply halve an avocado, remove the pit, crack an egg, add the yolk into the avocado half where the pit used to be, and then follow with the whites. Repeat this procedure with the other half. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste, and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes.

6. Blend into a smoothie:

The rich taste of avocados makes a great addition to smoothies and it as adds texture too.

Try our avocado body healer smoothie, which includes healthy ingredients like kiwi and arugula.
