30 Must-Try Avocado Recipes
We must confess: avocado is our love language. So creamy, so satisfying, so many ways to enjoy it beyond toast and guac.

Foods go viral all the time (see: whipped coffee and air fryer pasta chips), but none have made the shift from buzzy trend to total staple quite like avocado. Scroll through social media, open a brunch menu, or search for recipe inspo and you’ll likely come across a dish with the iconic green fruit (yes, it’s a fruit). And we’re not mad about the avo-overload—aside from tasting great on just about everything, it’s super versatile and nutrient-dense.

In fact, that’s why avocado might be part of your new ZeroPoint™ foods list: It’s a nutritional powerhouse! Not only is avocado a good source of filling fiber, but it’s also naturally high in better-for-you unsaturated fat, which has been linked to heart health, as well as key vitamins and minerals. So, if your idea of a perfect Sunday brunch includes avocado toast or you can’t imagine taco night without guac, you’re in luck. Adding avocado to your plate is a simple and delicious way to make any meal or snack more satisfying.
