We’ll always pay extra to add avocado.
Not quite a veggie, not quite a fruit, the creamy green “alligator fruit” is a staple in healthy kitchens. That’s because an avocado a day does the body good—one serving contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, more potassium than a banana, nearly 25 percent of your daily recommended fiber intake, and a plethora of antioxidants and vitamins that support overall health.
Plus, they taste damn good. Let’s face it—any excuse to add avocado into a meal and we’re there. So naturally, we rounded up 11 of the most drool-worthy avocado recipes we could find … just in time for the weekend. Happy cooking!
Our two favorite foods—macaroni and cheese and avocado—in one dish? That’s it, we’re making this tonight.

Yes, avocado cake is totally a thing—and it’s delicious. The healthy fats in avo essentially serve the same purpose as butter, which is a great swap for vegan bakers. Be prepared to slice into a dense, fudgy cake if you add avocado into your recipe!
For the same reason that avocado makes a great substitute for butter in baking, it makes a killer addition to vegan ice cream! Instead of loading up on heavy cream, egg yolks, and sugar, this recipe calls for coconut milk, avocado, and stevia. Promise, you won’t even taste the avocado—just spicy, chocolatey goodness.
No oven, no problem. The perfect dessert for hot summer days, this no-bake avocado cheesecake will be the star of any potluck!
OK, with cacao, coconut, and avocado, this is basically the superfood version of an ice cream bar. We’ll take 10, please.
