Use ’em to create healthy truffles
Chocolate truffles may taste and smell like heaven on earth (we’re lookin’ at you, Godiva) but they aren’t exactly bikini-friendly. The good news is that it’s totally possible to get your decadent chocolate fix without blowing your diet, and avocado truffles are the answer. We love this recipe from Detoxinista! It’s easy to make and is sure to quell even the strongest of sugar cravings.
If you love avocados and your fridge is filled with hummus, you’ll love this creative hybrid. Guacahummus is exactly what it sounds like: a blend of guacamole and chickpeas. This fiber- and protein-rich spread makes for a creative party app or a flavorful addition to a sandwich or pita.
Intrigued? To make a batch, place a pitted and peeled avocado into a food processor, along with a drained can of BPA-free chickpeas, 1/4 cup chopped red onion, 3 cloves of garlic, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, juice of 1 lime, fresh cilantro, and dried cumin and salt to taste. Push “go” and blend until smooth. In less than 30 seconds, you’ll be ready to eat!
