Whether it’s smashed on toast, grilled, pickled or blended into a smoothie, farmers are urging consumers to eat more of them after recent news reveals avocado production has boomed, rising by 30,000 tonnes from 2021 to 124,000 tonnes this year.
Making a smoothie with your avocados is a great way to use your supply. For an on-the-go breakfast, combine avocados with green, leafy vegetables like kale and fruits like banana, pineapple or berries. For that extra kick, add half a teaspoon of cinnamon.
Another popular way to eat avocado is spreading it on toast for a rich, velvety, cholesterol-free topping. Simply top your toast with your mashed avocado and bacon, and season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes if you like it hot.
Grilled avocado is a fantastic summer side dish to barbecued meats. So quick and simple, avocados grilled on the barbecue cook to a wonderful softness and creaminess with a smoky taste. They are the perfect complement to your favourite barbecued items.
