The avocado is a nutritious superfood that fits into a variety of meals — including breakfast. Start your day off right with these seven delicious ways to incorporate the luscious and delicious avocado into the most important meal of the day.
1. Creamy Avocado Banana Green Smoothie
The creamy texture of avocados makes them a natural go-to ingredient for smoothies. The satisfying smoothie pictured below, courtesy of Minimalist Baker, is naturally sweet, yet it’s also packed full of vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein. And like all smoothies, it makes for the perfect breakfast on the go.
2. Avocado Omelette
Omelets are a great way to get your protein fix in the morning, and this avocado omelet from Tasteful Keto has just four net carbs, making it perfect for those following the popular keto diet. Jazz yours up with hot sauce, salsa, sour cream (or all three!) or any other toppings of your choice.
3. Cornmeal Cheddar Waffles With Fried Eggs + Avocado Pico De Gallo
These savory waffles from Whole And Heavenly Oven are a nice departure from the typical sweet kind, and the avocado pico de gallo is so good that it just might have you swearing off traditional butter-and-syrup-topped waffles forever.
4. Blueberry Avocado Muffins
These fluffy and sweet blueberry avocado muffins from Gimme Some Oven utilize the green fruit in place of oil for a delicious and healthy muffin that even little kids can enjoy.
5. Elevated Avocado Toast
Avocado toast has been having a moment for a while now. But instead of shelling out big bucks for a meh version at a restaurant, you can make plenty of spruced-up versions at home that are anything but boring. Try yours smashed with a soft-boiled egg or with blue cheese and strawberries for an unexpected flavor combination that’s surprisingly delightful.
6. Avocado Breakfast Bowls
Sometimes, the best breakfasts come about when you just mix a bunch of healthy, tasty ingredients together in a bowl for a mashed-up meal that delivers the perfect flavor in every bite. That’s definitely the idea with this avocado breakfast bowl from Lovely Little Kitchen, which incorporates bacon, greens and Trader Joe’s famous Everything But The Bagel seasoning.
7. Southwest California Avocado Hash and Eggs with California Avocado Chile Cream Sauce
This indulgent avocado hash recipe from California Avocados would be an awesome dish with which to impress your friends when you invite them over for Sunday brunch. Garnish your hash browns with additional slices of avocado and whole chives for that perfect presentation.
