How to chop avocados

Who isn’t addicted to avocados?

I frequently include these creamy fruits (yes, avocados are a fruit!) in our meal plans. Every diet – vegetarian, paleo, dairy-free, gluten-free – can enjoy them, and even the pickiest eater can agree on a meal with avocado.

However, it may not be clear exactly how to hack into one, and I’ve definitely taught students who had no idea what to do when it came time to prep our avocado. For the reason, I’ve made a video to take the mystery out of prepping one. Just hit play and in less than 1 minute, you’ll learn how to chop avocados!

If you need ideas on how to enjoy this creamy fruit, here’s a round-up of our favorite avocado recipes.
