54 Ways to Eat an Avocado

Ben Holtz, Avocado Grower

California Avocados Direct


I love eating California avocados. As a California avocado grower, this is a very good thing. There is nothing better than being able to enjoy the eating experience of the fruits of your labor. Harvesting ten months of the year, there are always ripe avocados at the kitchen table. As an infant, my first food was avocado. Now, after decades of growing and eating California avocados, I can hardly count all of the ways that I have personally eaten them. 


Avocados: A Super Food

Avocados are often classified as a super food, I feel fortunate to have access to a nutrient-dense fruit that has such a rich and creamy flavor. Above all, I have found California avocados to be a flavor enhancer for any dish.

Add a side of sliced avocados to Italian food, Chinese food, or Mexican food and enjoy. Avocados also make great calorie substitutes for butter, mayonnaise, salad dressings, etc. The meal opportunities for avocado are endless. Below is a list of some of the ways I have eaten avocados.
