Craving a salty snack? Here is a healthy idea that keeps you away from greasy crisps and adds some proper nutrients to your diet. Yes, 100 grammes of avocado contain almost seven grammes of dietary fibre and nearly fifteen grammes of healthy fats.
Nice and simple, no cooking required. All you need is a spoon, an avocado and some tasty dips. Our favourite ones are beet hummus and tahini sauce. Their sweet-salty-nutty flavours perfectly match with the creamy texture and slightly sweet character of the green fruit.
No time to make those dips? Drizzle the avocado with oil and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Just make sure to use excellent ingredients as a smooth, richly flavoured extra-virgin olive oil, and Himalayan pink sea salt.

If your avocado is not ripe enough, the best way to speed up the ripening process is to place it in a closed brown paper bag for one day with a fruit that gives off ethylene gas while ripening. These types of fruits include bananas, apples, pears, plums, apricots, nectarines, mangoes, papaya and passion fruits.
