I love healthy snacks. I can be so busy that I need to reach for something quick. And it is so easy to buy all prepackaged sometimes but I know that is not the best thing for me in the long run.
So I am always playing around in my kitchen during my free time, trying to create tasty options I can make ahead for later or make quick. And with a bunch of avocados lying around that were super ripe, I had to come up with ideas quick! I hate to waste….
Only a few ingredients each and has loads antioxidants & healthy fats.
1. Avocado Yogurt
- 1/2-1 avocado
- 1 Cup Greek or Coconut yogurt
- 1/3 Cup local honey
Blend ingredients and enjoy!! Now the size of the avocado can determine how much you use. If smaller use whole and if larger use about half. We share this and love to add fresh berries and granola to it!
2. Chocolate Avocado Pudding
- 1 avocado
- 1/4 Cup Cacao or Cocoa powder
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 tbsp honey
This is one of my favorite snacks! And for the kids too. Blend the ingredients till creamy consistency. You can play around and add some vanilla or more honey..top with nuts…Whatever you fancy!
3. Matcha Avocado Milkshake
- 1 avocado
- 2 tsp Matcha Powder
- 1-2 cups Almond Milk
- 1 tbsp honey
Blend all ingredients till smooth. This cures my sweet cravings in no time. It’s delicious and simple. Plus it’s a way to get in nutrients instead of empty calories. Even add in some banana or coconut and freeze for a little “nice cream” treat.
One of my favorite things I have come to love is avocados. It’s filling and packs a ton of vitamins. It is great for your skin, hair and your overall well being!! So try one of these out if you need a snack pick me up from time to time and play around with what tastes good to you!!
