How To Eat Avocado Even When You Don't Like It!

18

Avocado has to be the number one food when it comes to polarizing people's opinions.

You might be one of these people who love this savory fruit. You'll find any excuse to put it in sandwiches, burritos, omelets, and you'll add guacamole to everything!

And then there's the others. 'Slimy green mush' seems to generally sum up how some people feel about the avocado.

Despite this, even the biggest avocado phobic can't deny the health benefits.

Avocados have been proven to lower blood pressure, reduce the likelihood of heart attacks and strokes, and lower cholesterol.......things that all of us in the western world need to do.

But here's the ugly truth. You can be bashed over the head many times with the 'avocado is good for you'    phrase, but if you genuinely don't like it, you're not likely to stick at eating it long term.

Sure, your will power might make you eat avocados for a few weeks on a health kick, but very soon, you'll give up. The health benefits associated with eating avocados isn't something that can happen in a matter of weeks.

So today, we're going to show you 3 easy, quick ways you can get avocado into your meals. And you won’t even be able to tell it's in there!

We've found 3 clever ways to use avocados that will make you think twice, even if you're the most ardent avocado hater.

Chocolate Mousse:

Believe or not, it's the actually creaminess (or 'sliminess' if you're an avocado loather) that creates the most decadent of chocolate mousses. Yet the chocolate completely masks the taste of avocado!  

Choose a dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids) as it masks the avocado taste much more than milk chocolate, or you could add mint leaves.

Take 3/4 cup of chocolate and melt it in a heatproof bowl over simmering water on a stove. Add some mint leaves, if using. Now add maple syrup (add as much as you want, depending on how sweet your tooth is) and combine well.  

Split and pit 1 avocado and scoop up the flesh. Take the chocolate off heat and mix in the avocado flesh. Now pour everything into a blender and blend till smooth. Top with fruit pieces, coconut shavings, or devour on its own!

Pistachio & Avocado Ice Cream:

Yes, you can make ice cream with avocado and, do it our way, all avocado taste is obliterated!

Soak 3/4 cup of shelled pistachios overnight. Then, add 1 tablespoon of lemon or lime juice and process the pistachios in a food processor till smooth.

Split and pit 1 avocado and scoop up the flesh, and then add to the processed pistachios.

Now add some honey (depending on how sweet you like your ice cream), a drop of vanilla essence, and process again till smooth.

Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk, little by little, until you get a mousse consistency. Pour the mixture into a shallow container and freeze. You'll be a convert once you've tasted this!



Avocado Bread:

Yes, we also fell off our seat when we heard you could make bread with avocado!

Preheat your oven to 180°F. Split and pit 2 large avocados and scoop up the flesh.

Add to a blender, add 3 eggs, and about 1/3 cup of olive oil. Blend until smooth.

In a mixing bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of flax seeds and 1 cup of ground almonds with a pinch of salt and pepper. Now add the avocado mixture in and mix well till it's all smooth.

Grease a loaf tray and spoon in the mixture. Scatter some sunflower and/or pumpkin seeds on top, and bake for 30 minutes delicious!

Try our 'avocado hater' recipes. We guarantee you'll be pleased.  

The next time one of your smug friends go on about how healthy avocado is and how they can devour a bowl of guacamole in one sitting, you can roll your eyes at them and say Guacamole? Is that all you're still doing with avocado? That's so BORING!

I adhere to a paleo diet (for the most part) and already knew about making chocolate mousse using avocados, however, I never knew that bread could be made using avocados! Very sneaky!

Margaret C Marty#2

I really dislike avocados. But am willing to try the bread recipe. Looks easy enough and I love sunflower seeds. I think the texture is my issue and this looks promising.

Ruby #3

These recipes seemed really yummy. I did not know avocado could be made in some of these forms. I will definitely be trying some of these recipes soon especially when I expect dinner guests.

Daniel adams#4

My doctor advise me to eat Avocado. I also heard about its healthy benefits. But its taste make me hate it. I think if I use this recipe, I can eat avocado.

julieg#5

This is totally awesome. Avocados are one of my favorite foods and I can’t wait to try out some new ways of cooking with it and enjoying it. I am especially excited about the Mousse.

Yusuf Odukoya#6

I used to eat avocado with a heap of salt. I never knew that there are other unique ways of consuming the fruit until reading this.

Mike Henderson#7

I wanted to eat Avocados after reading benefits of eating them. When i tried eating them on its own, i did not like taste. After reading about Avocado Bread in here, i would defintely try this. I hope the taste would be different this time in a way i would like.

micheal william#8

Each time I browsing internet for healthy food, I find the Avocado at the top of the healthy food. the problem to me is how can I eat it? But after reading this post I can solve this problem. thanks for writer.

Michael Van De Graaff#9

I normally just eat avocados plain, I don’t see what all the fuss is about. But regardless, that ice cream looks absolutely delicious!

Chris Rudy#10

Definitely going to try this out, can’t argue about the health benefits!.

Personally would have never though to put chocolate and avocado together!

Brian Kruse#11

Actually I like this recipe for its various health effect like lowering blood pressure.Having chocolate and avocado in at a time make this more appealing.

tehmina kausar#12

i have a disease doctor advise me to use avocado but i really dont like it but after reading this post really in love with avocado

Amber Schoendaller#13

i never thought to put avocado and chocolate together! i eat avocado with everything! these are definitely some recipes i will try with my picky eaters!

Bethany S#14

I just started my baby on solids. Her first go w/ avocados was…interesting to say the least. Not her favorite, but certainly not her most despised (that’s reserved for peas and green beans). I’m glad to see there are ways to hide it from her if it ever falls to the ‘most despised’ side of the category. That bread looks amazing!

Dave John#15

I tried Chocolate Mousse before also tried avocado in in ice cream but the bread is totally new thing surely I am going to try that could you give us any curry recipe?Could be mixed up with some spice or something like that.

Dorothy Kernaghan-Baez#16

O.M.G. A recipe for a vegan chocolate mousse on a mainstream site!

I love guacamole, but other than that I’m sort of “meh” about it. I also hate alternative milks, so I can’t wait to try the mousse!

For people who like California rolls, you can take snack size seaweed paper, put a little scoop of rice on the paper, then top with a dollop of guacamole. I call them “white trash California rolls.”

Elizabeth Ferguson#17

Although I am a huge fanatic about avocados already, I couldn’t resist reading this article to get some more unique recipes! The chocolate mousse is by far my favorite because the avocado adds a unique texture. I topped it off with lime shavings to add a little sour to the sweetness! Yum.

Chris S#18

Ok, just reading through the chocolate mousse recipe just blows my mind. I never would have put chocolate and avocados together but thats something I got to try! My girlfriend is going to love the bread recipe

What people are saying about us:

  • "The shears arrived on time and in perfect condition. The moment I picked them up I knew these were quality shears. The very first thing I used them for was to cut a chicken in half. I cut through the breast, right down the middle and then through the spine. For a moment I thought something was not right with that chicken because I cut through it with such ease. I was amazed! They are extremely sharp and have a very nice weight to them. I feel tempted to buy another pair just because."

    By DRW

  • "Very fast delivery, very well packed, friendly, professional, courteous & very knowledgeable service. I'm a line cook so I go through 2-3 thermometers a month. This thermometer is very well built & very sturdy. It lights up which helps a lot. It's very quick on the readings which you greatly need when you have 15-25 things you need to check an hour. The probe is approximately 6-7 inches & at first I thought that was quite long but the more I've used it I like the longer probe. What more can I say about this? It's a great deal for the money & with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. I'll be buying a second & maybe a third for home on the barbeque grill."

    By deb

  • "At last, I can open the jars and bottles without asking for help. We were using some gizmo with a rubber strap that I could never understand how it was supposed to work let alone manipulate it correctly. Chef Remi’s jar opener is very simple to use and it really works on the first attempt with little to no pressure or stress on my arthritic hands. I am so glad I ran across this item and it is well worth the price (which is very good). I can use this tool not only in the kitchen but anywhere there's a jar, bottle or similar container to be opened."

    By grace jones

  • "I saw a commercial for these grill mats on TV, it almost seemed too good to be true.....so I bought them to try them out. Everything in the TV commercial was true and more! You can grill ANYTHING on these mats, keeps flavor in foods, you can add cheese & sauces to your food and there's no mess to clean up! Your grill stays clean, your food tastes amazing, and you simply rinse the mats with warm soapy water! I love these grill mats so much I bought another set for my dad, he grills all year round. My dad loved the grill mats also and is now telling his friends about them. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!"

    By Aly's Max

  • "My new favorite kitchen scissors. I love to cook but do everything I can to not have to touch chicken and these are perfect. Nothing worse than a pair of scissors that leave you half way through a cut and then doesn't come through, these are not those. I can't wait to try them out when making jerky next weekend. I will try to remember to post an update after but sure my review will remain the same. These feel very sturdy and like they will last forever. I have ordered several Chef Remi items and love them all. Wish they would make more stuff I could use as I have almost everything available on Amazon from them."
