Scrumptious Stuffed Avocados

IMG_6030

Avocado has got to be one of my favorite foods. It is so versatile. You can use it for sandwiches, salads, smoothies…the list goes on! This post is not so much a specific recipe but an idea of another way to eat avocado. Stuffed! I show here two versions that I’ve tried, (which were so good!) but you can definitely make it your own. Have fun!

The Savory:

Loaded with mad proteins and looking adorable, this salmon cranberry stuffed avocado is the bomb! If I weren’t so full after the second one, I would have made a third.  

Ingredients:

  • 75g of smoked salmon (or however much you want to stuff)
  • 1 tablespoon of dried cranberries
  • 2-3 roasted almonds
  • 1 ripe avocado  

Directions:

  1. Cut the avocado in half and take out the pit
  2. Scoop out a bit of avocado in the center to make some room for the stuffing
  3. Slice the salmon in to bite size pieces
  4. Chop the roasted almonds (no need to be too fine)
  5. Stuff the avocado! Ideally in this order: salmon, cranberries, almonds.

Eat/Serve immediately.

The Sweet:

After success with the savory version, I wanted to try a sweet version. This mango coconut stuffed avocado makes me want to be on a tropical beach somewhere. A girl can dream…I guess having it as an afternoon snack while reading a good book at home ain’t too shabby either.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 tablespoon of shredded coconuts
  • 1-2 macadamia nut(s)
  • 7-8 blueberries
  • 1 ripe avocado  

Directions:

  1. Cut the avocado in half and take out the pit
  2. Scoop out a bit of avocado in the center to make some room for the stuffing
  3. Cut the mango in to bite size pieces
  4. Chop the macadamia nuts
  5. Stuff the avocado! Ideally in this order: mango, coconuts, macadamia nuts, blueberries.

The final product looks so fancy but it was actually so easy to make. It is also vegan and gluten-free.

Now, it’s your turn to get creative!
