Smashed, blended or sliced, gorgeously green, creamy avocado is a powerhouse ingredient. It can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even in desserts. This fruit is extremely versatile and; yes, it is technically a fruit! Although most of us seem to pair avocados most easily with fresh summer dishes, there are many ways to eat avocados in winter.
Not only are avocados utterly delicious, they are also jam-packed with nutrients. Loaded with fibre, hearty fats and more than 20 vitamins and minerals, an avocado is the the ideal ingredient to add to better-for-you comfort food recipes.
Why not add a spoonful of guacamole to a hearty chilli con carne, or try adding avocado to your next soup recipe? Not only does it add a touch of vibrant colour, but it also creates a rich and creamy texture to your dish. A more decadent way to enjoy avocados in winter is to add them to your desserts. Picture the alluring scent of freshly baked avocado brownies emerging from the oven on a winter’s day.
