Delicious Avocado Boats for your snack

Are you a Avocado lover? If you are anything like me, then that would be a Yes! We all know how great avocados are for you, and they are just as delicious. The antioxidants that they contain are beyond measure. They are loaded up with the BEST fats that your body needs. The vitamins and minerals in an avocado are everything your body needs on a daily basis. I feel as if some days I eat too many avocados. I put them in my salads, egg dishes, Mexican casseroles, and so forth. There are so many great ways to incorporate avocados into your daily diet. People seem to think that they only taste good with “Mexican dishes”. That is clearly not true.

One item that I love to make on busy days are Avocado boats. You simply can slice the avocado down the middle, and take the filling and make a dip that is healthy to put inside of it. I often throw many vegetables together and put it in as the filling. These are perfect on the go snacks. They can also be incorporated into a healthy lunch as well. A few great ideas for avocado boats are placing a slice of smoked salmon with fresh mango and lime juice. You can also take Ahi Tuna and mix with sesame oil and a few sesame seeds with a little ginger. This is very tasty. My all time favorite is placing the avocado filling inside with a mixture of corn, tomatoes, olives,and black beans with a little lime juice. I do put a bit of hot sauce on the top. It is truly to die for. My favorite recipe is down below.

  • 2  organic avocados

  • 1/4 cup organic black beans
  • 1/3 cup corn
  • 1/5 cup olives chopped
  • 1 small tomato chopped

 

Take the two avocados and cut in the middle. take the filling of each avocado and put in a small bowl. chop all the other vegetables up. Take the vegetables and place on the side. fill each avocado boat up with the filling and place the veggie mixture on top. place the basil on top of each boat. Toss a little pepper on top. voila !fullsizerender-164
