Avocados. We love them, But how many times have they betrayed us with their ripeness, causing us to throw away what was just yesterday a perfectly ripe avocado? Especially when you find yourself buying that value bag of 6 avocados (because “of course I’ll use them all!”), then you only end up using 2 before they all go bad.
It’s a hard knock life.
To avoid further tragedy and loss of the avocado variety, here are 4 ways to use those very ripe avocados before they turn that extremely disheartening shade of brown.
DUH. And making a big batch allows you to use multiple avocados. Invite a few friends over to share a bowl of guac, served with some veggies and tortilla chips. Taco Tuesday? Sounds like a hit with fresh, homemade guac.
Avocado egg toast
No, as a matter of fact, we are very much not over this trend. Scoop out your avocado, slap it on some toast, and top with an over easy (or, if you’re like me, “over medium”) egg. Try this slightly spicy variation if you’re feeling, well, spicy.
Avocado chocolate mousse
I know this sounds like the most Frankenstein dessert, but it’s surprisingly delicious! Avocado is wonderfully bland (you know it’s true), so it’s easy to transform into a dessert. Add some cocoa and some honey and that’s it.
Oh yes, avocados are very multi-purpose. They can go in your body or on your body – the versatility! It’s amazing. Slap together some mashed avocado, hot water and honey. That’s all it takes for an all-natural face mask! It’s insanely moisturizing.
