Avocados. You love them or hate them. Lately, they've taken on the term "trendy food" but I've loved these bad boys for as long as I can remember (and that's a while)!
My fav way to eat them is in a BIG fresh bowl of guac, but over the years I discovered I was missing out on the best part!!! Could you be too?
Imagine yourself making guac (or watching the pro at your fav Mexi spot do it table side) and what is the first thing you do/see after splitting the avocado in half?? Yep. You guessed it. You/they toss that seed out.
Don't be confused, but I'm going to encourage you to stop that right now. The seed is incredible and in fact contains most of the antioxidants that this amazing fruit has to offer!!! Here are a few facts:
Now for directions on use;
First set them aside and let them dehydrate, (I eat avocado ALOT so I keep a small bowl in my kitchen window that I add to throughout the week) After they are dehydrated, peel the skin that's dried and loose (on the outside) and you'll uncover a softer pit. (If doing individually this can take several hours) Once I've got mine peeled and prepped, I dice them up (Remember knife safety here y'all, don't want to lose any digits... if they aren't soft hold off until they are) I leave mine and do all this at the end of the week.
Once they are diced, pop them in a blender and blend to a pretty fine consistency. THEN, as the facts stated, I use this powder in my smoothies all week long!
It's a quick and easy way to get more antioxidants in AND making good use of that seed!! Hope you enjoy! Shout out below when you try this too!!
