Although these green wee fellows are pretty hard to come by in the winter months, they are pure green gold. So many good fats! Loaded with more potassium than a banana and plenty of fibre to boot, these creamy little suckers are a must if you’re looking for a good dosage of omega-3’s.
They are so versatile. Add them to your morning banana smoothie to add velvety creaminess or use them to make a delicious chocolate mousse or frosting. Savoury or sweet, what a delight to eat!
Now the question is, are they sustainable? Not really. In fact there is a bit of a crisis when it comes to sustainably farming Avocado’s at the moment
Recipe for Berry and Avocado Breakfast Smoothie

- Whizz all ingredients together and serve!
