Ripe avocados are typically known for their silky, creamy texture and rich flavors which some people describe as nutty flavour. Unripe, they can be kept refrigerated for up to two weeks.
One-third of a medium avocado (50g) has 80 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it a great nutrient dense food choice. The avocado is virtually the only fruit that contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fat – good fat! Avocados are naturally sodium, sugar and cholesterol free.
