Use avocado substitute in all your favorite creamy dishes

It’s a safe bet you’d be hard pressed to find someone nowadays that doesn’t like avocados. Not only are they tasty but they also hold a vast number of benefits for the human body including keeping your heart healthy, lowering your blood sugar and satiating your appetite. SEE ALSO: A typical vegan’s daily menu When you use them in recipes, they substitute in perfectly to create those creamy texture dairy foods we all love so much. They’re rich, buttery and even slightly sweet if you use them in the right recipe. But, unlike butter, milk, eggs, cream, or even yogurt and cheese, which contain cholesterol, saturated fat, milk sugar (lactose) and excess hormones, avocados won’t cause digestive troubles. Avocados are well-known for their healthy monounsaturated fats that protect your heart, but they’re also high in many other nutrients. And best of all you can eat with a clear conscious, knowing you are not participating in an industry that supports animal cruelty. Here are five ways to use avocados in all your favorite creamy dishes. 1. Smoothies Use in smoothies instead of milk or yogurt. I usually add bananas but avocados are great when you want a smoothie that doesn’t taste like bananas. Just 1/4 of an avocado is enough to give you that same creamy, thick texture, but without the sugar and dairy. For a sweeter taste, let it freeze for about 5 minutes before. You’ll be pretty full since their healthy fat and fiber content will better stabilize your blood sugar. Try with some berries, cacao, and a little non-dairy milk, like this Chai Chocolate Green Smoothie. Another tasty dessert smoothie consists of mango, almond milk, avocado and baby spinach greens. 2. Mousse Make a green nutritious and delicious mousse without milk or cream. Avocados will give you that rich, creamy pudding like dessert texture you’ve always loved and because they’re relatively tasteless in the end of the recipe, you’ll only taste the flavor of whatever other ingredients you use in the mix. Popular combinations are cacao to make a chocolate mousse, but you could also use vanilla, berries, coconut, peanut butter, or even mint to make your favorite flavor mousse. Try Raw Avocado Chocolate Mousse.   3. Brownies Forget that greasy butter and whip these magical fruits into a batch of brownies. They’re one of the easiest dishes to substitute healthy ingredients with. Avocados provide that fatty flavor like butter and oil but without any negative health risks. Try these recipes: The Ultimate Vegan Brownies or Healthy Chocolate Avocado Vegan Fudge.     4. Salad dressing Salads can be deceivingly fattening especially if the dressing is a heavy cream or mayonnaise base such as ranch or caesar. Using avocados ensures you have a dairy-free and satisfying salad dressing. They’re also perfect for chopping or slicing in salads. For a dressing, add 1/2 a ripe avocado to a blender with a squeeze of lemon, pinch of sea salt and black pepper and for some extra tang, add your favorite hot sauce (if your palette is a little spicy sensitive, go for a mustard). Blend and add any herbs you enjoy. This will make 2 servings. You can also try Hearty Vegan Cobb Salad or  Super Star Lentil Taco Salad. SEE ALSO: Dandelion flowers can serve as vitamins and so much more! 5. Dips Forget about dipping into a tub of lard and duck into avocado dip. There’s more to dips than just guacamole. Try this creamy green avocado basil dip.The post Use avocado substitute in all your favorite creamy dishes appeared first on Voxxi.
