We picked our top 17 favorite avocado-friendly recipes, taking into account simplicity, next-level originality and difficulty level. Most of these are super easy to whip up as a snack.

No, I don’t think I could do the sweets either, but the rest of it looks good, especially the egg and avocado breakfast pizza. One of my favorite breakfasts is putting a fried egg and avocado slices on a toasted English muffin.

It has a very mild flavour so when you add anything sweet you mask the “avocado” flavour. You don’t really taste it much in the chocolate mousse 🙂
