If you love avocado spreads, you will love our 5 Minute Garlic Avocado Spread recipe.

15-Minute Avocado Hummus has a nice balance of flavors: citrus, spice and avocado. But, if you want to avoid the spice factor, skip on red pepper flakes and jalapeños altogether.

To preserve avocado color, leave avocado pit inside the mixture. This will prevent it from browning. Also using citrus in avocado spreads helps preserve the color for a longer time.

How to Ripen Avocados

The quickest way to ripen avocados is to place them in a paper bag with apples, but once avocados are softened, you should refrigerate them. Another way to ripen them is to just keep avocados at room temperature. This process takes a little longer but  works just as great.

Does Avocado Have Protein?

Avocados typically have about 2 grams of protein. This is a very important fact to our family because my husband is a gym junky, so everything we eat must have protein.. Lol!
