Avocado toast, guacamole, chocolate mousse — the possibilities are endless. The irresistibly rich and creamy avocado is one of the most versatile ingredients out there and it’s the perfect way to brighten up just about any sweet or savoury dish.
Technically a large berry with one big seed, this wildly popular fruit is also wildly good for you. Packed with a ton of vitamins and minerals like vitamin K, C, E, multiple Bs, folate, and potassium, this always-in-season superfood is also high in antioxidants, heart-healthy fatty acids, and fiber, which helps keep you fuller, longer.
