Hurry up & ripen!

Avocados are so good for you, containing healthy fats (mostly monounsaturated oleic acid) to help lower blood cholesterol levels, making them excellent for cardiovascular health. They also contain many antioxidants (including vitamin C & E) which help protect against ageing & cancer.

The high vitamin C content helps protect against heart disease, boosts the immune system & promotes beautiful skin (through enhanced collagen production). These alligator pears (as they were formerly known), also contain fibre, making them a super healthy addition to your diet.

Health benefits of the avocado

Avocados are incredibly versatile, delicious raw, especially in salads, sushi, mashed & eaten on toast, or used as a fat substitute when cooking (eg. avocado chocolate cookies elsewhere in this blog). They are also add luxurious creaminess when blended into smoothies, in avocado chocolate mousse & in dips.

This dip is terrific with cruditées & as an accompaniment to meals (see below!). It is also very quick & easy to make! If you like a thicker dip & want to boost the protein content, add 1 tbsp protein powder (pea,  soy & organic sunflower protein powder varieties work beautifully!).
