Skip The Dip: 7 Things To Make With Leftover Avocados Besides Guacamole

Sorbet

This amazing sorbet recipe from the brilliant David Leite is completely vegan, but don’t tell your meat eating friends. They might hate it just out of spite. It combines avocado, coconut milk and fresh lime to create a creamy sorbet that tilts more towards ice cream than other sorbets.

Margarita

This quick and dirty avocado margarita recipe by Epicurious will make you wonder how you went this long without knowing how to blend up the liquid version of heaven. Fresh lime juice, tequila, orange liqueur, sugar and an avocado (with an optional jalapeno) is all it takes to make your spring seem a lot like summer.

 

Coffee Smoothie

Avocados can be added to any fruit smoothie (especially one with bananas) to make your morning drink especially creamy, but have you ever considered adding your morning cup of coffee to make your smoothie one-stop? Theย Avocado Coffee Smoothie recipe is super simple. Just add an avocado to some condensed milk, brewed coffee and nut milk of your choice to create a surprisingly refreshing pick-me-up.

Brownies

Yep. Adding ripe avocado to your brownie batter results in an incredibly moist treat, not to mention one with higher levels of potassium and healthy fats. Another recipe from Health.com includes avocado frosting!

Chocolate Pudding

Stop looking. Here is the only pudding recipe you need, courtesy of AllRecipes.ย Simply lend avocados, cocoa powder, brown sugar, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a blender until smooth. Refrigerate pudding until chilled, about 30 minutes. Is there an easier pudding recipe? Nope. And if pudding isn’t your thing, you can make a smoothie bowl with some cocoa, avocado and frozen bananas.

A naked smoothiebowl!!! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆSimple. This was my after workout snack yesterday. Chocolate chia protein pudding … Simply blend a frozen banana, 1-2 Tbsp chia seeds, a half an avocado, 2 Tbsp raw cacao, a serving of your favorite chocolate protein (I used #orgain vegan), and enough almond milk to make the blender go. (I used #Califiafarms) Feel free to add anything else to this basic recipe. (Or dates/maple syrup to sweeten) ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• I added a scoop of Orgain Superfoods, and a handful of frozen strawberries/blueberries for volume. (I was hungry after Crossfit and wanted a big bowl!) Top with whatever your heart desires … enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ˜š

3 Ingredient Hair Treatment

With its moisturizing fat and nourishing Vitamin E, ย avocados help to strengthen hair and promote hair growth. Here’s how to whip up a simple batch using avocado, honey and olive oil.

Hydrating Face Mask

Avocados are definitely skin food, nourishing your outer layer from the inside out. But it’s also literally “skin food” when applied directly to the skin. Similar to the hair treatment, this smoothie for your faceย โ€” oatmeal, avocado, lemon and apple cider vinegar โ€” is one of the best things you can do to soothe your skin. Mashed avocado and olive oil is especially soothing on sunburned skin.

From total marijuana legalization in Canada, to North America becoming more chilled out about its own state laws, buying your favorite green flower has never been easier and growing your own is almost as simple.ย
