A few weeks ago, I was invited to participate in a “Cinco de Swap” with Avocados from Mexico and The Motherhood. Along with some other bloggers, I was sent a $50 gift card to cover the cost of groceries to make a tasty avocado recipe.

As you know, I love avocado, especially in the form of freshly made guacamole. At least once a week, I make a big batch of guac and eat it with rice crackers or raw veggies. It’s the best snack. Or meal. Ok, there have been a number of times, like last night, when I eat a ton of guacamole and call it dinner. With all of those healthy fats, it’s an incredibly satisfying food.

Avocados are also an extremely versatile fruit (yep, they’re a fruit) and can be eaten alone or used in a variety of recipes””as the main ingredient or topper””from soups to salads to smoothies and desserts. I’ve seen all sorts of creative avocado recipes in the blog world and on Pinterest. Just the other day, I saw a recipe for Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies that I really want to try.

For my recipe, I created a creamy avocado sauce, which I added to spaghetti squash. The sauce is made with avocado, nutritional yeast, sunflower butter, garlic, lime juice, and rice vinegar, so it has lots of interesting flavors that combine for a delicious””almost tangy””sauce. I mixed it with leftover spaghetti squash for a cool, avocado dish. I hope you guys like it as much as I do!

  1. Oh boy, I don’t really have a favorite recipe, but I love making homemade guacamole with salsa, garlic salt, onions, etcetra… 🙂

  2. Avocaods are my newfound love! I typically enjoy them as a spread for my sandwiches and on top of eggs for some healthy fats.

  3. Guacamole but with a spoon of greek yogurt added. It tastes so refreshing and “light”.

  4. I’ve recently begun eating guacamole and love my best friends recipe – it even gets me to eat cilantro which I normally hate!

  5. I made a similar dish tonight for dinner. I was missing some of the ingredients, so I made a sauce (1 cup heavy whipping cream, 2 tbsp minced garlic, 4 tbsp butter), heated it up until it bubbled a bit then threw it in a pan with the squash “noodles” & added my mashed up avocado and stirred it all together. Great taste! Hubby thought it would be great to add some fajita steak to it!

  6. I don’t think anyone could love avocado more than I do! You know what would be great? Getting $100 to buy all the avocados I want!
