Avocado Dip

Although avocados are often feared for their high fat content, the avocado is nothing to be scared of!

Avocado DipIn fact, the avocado should be relished into every diet. Yes, they are high in fat, but the kind of fat that has impeccable health promoting properties. That is monounsaturated fat, the kind of fat that lowers cholesterol.

Oddly, avocados are considered a fruit. They are a good source of vitamin K, C, and B6, as well as dietary fiber, copper, and they contain more potassium than a banana! Avocados have an incredibly rich and buttery flavor, making them perfect additions to spicy fare, salads, or in replacement of butter. Try incorporating them into smoothies, salsas, or into our Avocado Dip.
