Ripe avocados are typically known for their silky, creamy texture and rich flavors which some people describe as a nutty flavour. Unripe they can be stored in the fridge for 2 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.
