National Avocado Day is July 31st and you know I’m celebrating by eating meals and snacks including avocado all day long. From avocado truffles to mango salsa to colorful salads– I’ve rounded up some of the best avocado recipes. Read on for over 30 savory and sweet dishes to make today.
Avocados aren’t just for savory recipes, try them in a sweet drink like this Green Smoothie. This recipe calls for just 5 simple ingredients and is packed with powerful nutrients like antioxidants and minerals.
Fish is a great source of protein and pairs perfectly with diced avocados. This easy Mango Avocado Slaw calls for just 3 ingredients—diced avocados, cucumber, and mango. Spoon over blackened tilapia for a flavorful meal.
Make your own power bowl filled with a variety of ingredients like grains, veggies, and lean protein to provide long-lasting energy throughout the day. I like to top these bowls with diced avocado for extra creaminess and healthy fats!
Avocado is perfect to blend into homemade creamy dressings. The possibilities are endless with this easy Avocado Cilantro Dressing. Drizzle over mixed greens, roasted veggies, pasta salads, or rice bowls.
