Reasons to have an avocado breakfast

 

Avocados are nutrient dense, rich in 9 mono and polyunsaturated fats, and naturally low in sugar and sodium. Half an avocado can provide the average adult with 5g of fibre – 17 per cent of your daily needs – and has valuable levels of folate, and vitamin K and E.

Try avocado in the obvious salads, dips and canapés, but also experiment: add it to a green smoothie with kale or spinach; swap the traditional tomato gazpacho for an iced ‘avo’ gazpacho; and try using avocado as a butter replacement in baking. And of course, our favourite way to enjoy avo - for breakfast!

 

Is avocado a 0 SmartPoint food?


No. Avocados have more kilojoules and fat than many other fruits and can be easy to overeat which is why avocados have SmartPoints. Half a medium avocado has 5 SmartPoints.
