Avocados are so versatile — you can use them in stir-fries, salads, or spread it on toast. You can even use it as a base for ice cream. While the final product of the ice cream does not taste like avocados, it can give your recipe an added richness. You also won’t have to feel bad about eating a whole Mason jar’s worth because avocados also have great health benefits. Avocados are a good source of vitamin K, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, and pantothenic acid.
By incorporating avocados into your dish, you’ll have a recipe that tastes great with all of the added benefits, which is the reason why we made avocados the theme of this week’s SWAT.
