Five years ago, I wouldn't touch an avocado with a ten foot pole. As a lifelong picky eater, adding this interestingly textured delicacy into my diet wasn't an easy task. It definitely didn't happen overnight. I began with light, half-hearted dips in guacamole. I slowly worked my way up from there. 

While we make this super easy guacamole on the regular, I want to diversify my avocado intake a bit. In usual fashion, I went to my veg out Pinterest board to pull a few recent recipes. These 11 creative recipes range in time and effort, but they would definitely satisfy my avocado cravings. What other ways do you like to prepare your avocado -- besides guacamole? xoxo {av}


  1. I was actually that way about avocados once upon a time too, but now guacamole is probably my favorite food... and by extension my baby's, since he got so much of it in the womb :) But really, he loves avocado in chunks, as guacamole, pureed with bananas/yogurt, or any which way. Bonus that avocado's a super healthy thing for babies (and baby-growing mommas) to be eating! We'll have to try some of these - thanks for the great ideas.

  2. mmmm i love avocados! i like to eat it with scrambled eggs on toast or with pasta salad (+ turkey bacon, tomatoes, diced onions, lemon + italian dressing). xo jillian - cornflake dreams
