2. Avocado Pesto Linguine

Combining avocado and pesto just makes sense since they’re both green. You’ll be getting the overpowering taste of pesto mixed with the goodness of avocado. It makes this linguine dish far more healthier than an ordinary pesto linguine, and relies on fresh, wholesome ingredients throughout. Adding chicken will give this more protein, helping to balance out the carbohydrates from the pasta, and will make it a more complete meal. Not to mention pesto tastes great with chicken, and the avocado will only add to the flavor profile.

3. Avocado and Pistachio Ice Cream

This is an interesting way to use avocado, and it allows you to have ice cream if you otherwise are avoiding it. There is very little dairy used, and if you choose you can cut it out completely by going with a soy milk or almond milk. The focus here is on the avocado, which gives it the necessary smooth texture, and has such a light flavor that it easily gets lost to the pistachios, honey, and vanilla extract. What results is a cool and creamy treat that requires no ice cream maker.

4. Chicken Avocado Spring Rolls

These spring rolls are bursting with flavor as well as nutrition and can be the start to just about any meal, or used as a light lunch or snack. There’s chicken so you’ll be getting a good balance of meat, vegetables, healthy fats, and fiber all in one roll. The vegetables include carrots, cabbage, and romaine lettuce, all easily found at the grocery store. They’ve even provided the recipe for a dipping sauce that you can follow to get the full effect of these spring rolls.

5. Avocado Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes

She’s kept things simple with this avocado salad, and you can almost name all of the ingredients just by looking at it. Avocados and tomatoes pair well together, and the shallots provide even more flavor. A few different oils and a bit of lime juice and you’ll have a nutrient-dense salad with plenty of superfoods used. These superfoods include avocados, tomatoes, and olive oil all working together to bring you better health. Tomatoes are always making the news thanks to the lycopene they contain. This makes an easy side dish, and complements a chicken breast quite well.

6. Avocado Black Bean Salad with Tequila Chicken

Many times you’ll see avocado relegated to just being an add-on or garnish, but that’s a bit shortsighted. Here it steals the show away from the tequila chicken which sits upon it. Avocados, black beans, jalapenos, limes, and more combine to form quite a killer salad, which goes really well with the tequila chicken which uses tequila blanco for authentic tequila flavor. The dish as a whole is a great blend of protein, slow carbohydrates from the beans, and healthy fats and fiber from the avocado. A great dish!

7. Orange, Avocado & Arugula Salad

This is a great salad to have during the spring and summer months. It combines three superfoods as the star attraction, and you’ll get Vitamin C from the orange, an assortment of vitamins and minerals from the arugula, and the many benefits of avocados. It’s a very cooling salad, great for hot days when you don’t want to turn on the oven to make your meal. If you have some leftover chicken you can make this a more complete dish without having to do any actual cooking. On its own it makes a great starter or a light lunch.

8. Kale Avocado Salad

Kale has been gaining a lot of notoriety because of its healthy benefits, like plenty of fiber, protein, and iron, and when you combine that with all avocados have to offer, you’re onto something good. That’s what’s happening in this salad, which brings in the sweet and succulent help of a pear, as well as crisp coolness of a radish. You can swap out the pear for whichever fruit you happen to have. Each ingredient used in this salad has something to offer your body, and you should feel energized and light after you eat it.

9. Creamy Soy Milk Avocado Dip

There are hundreds of guacamole recipes out there, but this one provides a dip with such creaminess that we chose it among all others. The trick is that they’re using soy milk for the creaminess, so there’s no added dairy, just plenty of flavor and the right texture. Cilantro, jalapeno, and lime juice help give this the classic taste of guacamole that goes so well with chips and breads of all types. Because of its creaminess it’s easier to dip and is less resistant when you’re trying to scoop it up. This means less broken chips in the dip bowl.
