Sarah, I make this recipe without dairy products in order for it to be more compatible with my diet.

Two of our favorite superfoods—avocado and kiwi—take center stage in this take on a green smoothie.
Instead of carb-heavy eggs Benedict, try this take on an open-faced breakfast sandwich served on corn tortillas.
Mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes welcome avocado into the fold with an egg to bring everything together.
It may sound like an unlikely combination, but these three ingredients—and, of course, two slices of whole-grain bread—come together for a decadent and healthy lunch. Mashed avocado is a great substitute for less-than-healthy mayo or a few too many slices of cheese. Sometimes the classic soup, salad, or sandwich just seems too boring for that mid-day meal.
Stove and slow-cooker are both viable options for this chicken chili recipe, the kind of meal just right for warming you up on cold fall nights. While it seems like an unorthodox combination, avocados actually make a fantastic pasta sauce too. Salmon is a favorite come summer time, but its tasty all year round (just make sure to choose safe salmon!). A quick hit in the food processor is all it takes to whip up this avocado cream sauce, which gives light dimension to its blackened chicken counterpart.
Mashed avocado and coconut milk give these pops a creamy texture, while vanilla extract and matcha powder give them a distinct green-tea flavor. This slightly spiced chocolate cake (hint: It has just a bit of cinnamon!) is brought to the next level thanks to chocolate-avocado frosting.
Combined with coconut milk, some melted chocolate, and a few other ingredients, mashed avocado provides a great base for chocolate pudding. Greek yogurt and ripe avocado make up the base of this ice cream, and just a bit of heavy cream gives it a decadent-but-still-healthy texture. An almond and coconut crust give these single-serve cheesecakes some crunch and natural sweetness, while the maple-vanilla avocado filling lends the texture of traditional cheesecake without any of the dairy. Greek yogurt and avocado health-ify the filling for these deviled eggs (making them not so so devilish after all). Avocados and bananas have very similar textures, meaning they work similarly in baked goods. Filled with avocado, onion, and tomato, these egg rolls may be a bit healthier, but they're still fried, so take it easy on the portions!
This simple smoothie is perfect for satisfying that sugar craving without actually overdoing it on the sweet stuff. The avocado-banana combo in this recipe makes for an extra-creamy and decadent smoothie appropriate for breakfast or dessert.


Thanks to the pineapple and honey, you'll be hard-pressed to notice the generous helping of spinach in this creamy sweet treat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20-30 minutes to let all those yummy flavors blend together. I need to go to the grocery store for an avocado first but I will make it for lunch tomorrow! I am going to add the avocado and lime tomorrow a little before lunch, but the chicken salad is already delicious. I LOVE chicken salad but am very picky about how it is made… This I will say is my new favorite lunch time meal!!! Unfortunately, we aren’t that lucky and will have to settle for the normal-size, edible ones instead.
You get healthy fats and vitamin E from the avocado, plus a megadose of vitamin C and fiber from the kiwi! Fresh veggies and lots of spices lend tons of Mexican flavor without heavy sauces or loads of cheese.
Even better, these are equally suited for solo dining or made in batches, no sharing necessary.
While not necessarily the healthiest dish on this list, it's an easy way to get your veggies in early if you're on the go all day. Chunks of watermelon (superfood alert—they’re packed with vitamins A and C, and the amino acid citrulline), avocado, radish, and feta topped with mint and chives make for a light, nutrient-packed lunch or side dish. In this egg salad, the addition of avocado means cutting back on the amount of mayo while also adding some awesome flavor. Mashed avocado and mustard bind a combo of lean chicken breast and chopped veggies (choose whichever ones you like!). Mash avocado together with a can of tuna, season with salt, pepper, and any other herbs or spices you’d like. Avocado keeps the cilantro and green onion together while providing a great creamy texture.
Strawberries are rich in fiber and vitamin C, and a few tablespoons of goat cheese is a great way to get that cheesy flavor without having to pile on the calories. Greek yogurt replaces mayo, and mango adds a little extra sweetness to this recipe for something a bit different.
Fresh green peas, avocado, cucumber, and mint make this soup as green as can be, and tahini and lemon add even more flavor. In this sandwich, the avocado helps hold together mango, red onion, peppers, and dandelion greens on whole-grain bread. Fill an herb wrap with peach and avocado slices, basil leaves, and a splash of homemade balsamic dressing (follow the link for this recipe too!) for a vegetarian-friendly lunch packed with flavor and color. It reminds us of a hybrid between chicken and tortilla soup—which is our way of saying this is the best soup. Combined with lemon, garlic, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, and basil, it’s like a healthier (and greener) version of the classic alfredo sauce. And as evidenced by the ever-popular salmon-avocado roll sushi, the two make a winning combination.


Truly greater than the sum of its parts (avocado, lemon juice, garlic powder and salt), it's an easy meal for any occasion. Rather than meticulously rolling ingredients into a log and slicing, try making sushi rice balls with filling in the center! Much like with frozen bananas, tossing frozen avocados into a blender makes a simple, delicious, fruit-only ice cream. This recipe still uses the yolks but ups the nutritional value by adding yogurt and avocado instead of mayo. Instead of making yet another loaf of banana bread, try this very similar avocado loaf using whole-wheat flour. This slightly savory, slightly sweet drink is a fun way to indulge in an adult beverage while getting at least some nutritional value from the green fruit (and cilantro)! Simply blend the juice of 1 lemon, some water, cucumber, celery, greens (spinach would work well), avocado, and ginger until smooth. Chia seeds and almond butter add even more essential nutrients like magnesium and iron (hey chia!), plus fiber and vitamin E from the almond butter.
Which is when we turn to this guy: With a citrus focus (hello, kiwi, green apples, and pear) balanced by avocado, almond milk, and kale, it's a tasty way to pack in your nutrients for the day. The ingredients are a bit unconventional (nutritional yeast and maple syrup, meet avocado), but it's a leap of faith, a trust fall worth taking.
Serve in the avocado peel and eat with a fork, or enjoy in lettuce wraps for an easy, carb-free lunch. Stuffed with avocado, rice noodles, cashews, mushrooms, and bell pepper, they’re super healthy and versatile.
The creamy fruits are blended into a super smooth sauce to top chicken enchiladas filled with cheese, jalapenos, Poblano peppers, and onions.
Avocado makes it extra creamy, cilantro and lime kick up the flavor a few notches, and Pepper Jack cheese gives it a little oomph. Combined with a Poblano pepper, Panko crumbs, and garlic, this burger is so far beyond your basic beef, the argument is moo-t (sorry). Red wine vinegar, lemon, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and olive oil give it flavor, while avocado supplies the texture typically achieved by adding mayonnaise. I added more cilantro because we can never get enough of it, and served it on fresh kaiser rolls.
Throw on some extra veggies (we like arugula and tomato) for even more flavor and nutrients.
Three minutes to prepare, four minutes to cook—if our math is correct, that's seven minutes until happiness and healthy fat.
