Smoothie Snack: Avocado Smoothie
Avocados complement almost every smoothie combination. Their creaminess adds bulk to the smoothie and perfectly complements the sugar in the fruit (it is a fruit afterall!).

Dinner: Avocado Sandwich
This 4-layer ultimate plant-based sandwich is perfect if you want something comforting at the end of a long day. If you’re looking to reduce your cheese intake, these much healthier and lighter fillings will hit the spot instead. Find the recipe here.
Dessert: Chocolate Avocado Pudding
We know what you’re thinking, avocados are not what first comes to our mind when we think of dessert either. But, their taste is completely unidentifiable when paired with the much stronger flavor of cocoa powder. They are simply perfectly creamy to give you the ideal mousse/pudding texture. This is also a great child-friendly recipe if you want to squeeze some extra nutrition into their dessert. Find the recipe here.
