Honey Drizzled Veggie Avocado Cup

 

There’s nothing we love more than combining honey with avocado – it’s something about the creamy texture of the avocado paired with the sweet taste of honey (yes, if you didn’t know by now, we’re veggie-loving identical twins who are both registered dietitian nutritionists and certified fitness trainers who just happen to have a wicked sweet tooth 😉 that we work hard to keep in check! –and lucky for all of us, what we share with you and our clients has been tested by science–and also by us!) that creates the perfect mouthwatering sensation. Avocados are healthy for you too! Not only do they contain 20 vitamins and minerals, but they also are a good source of fiber, protein, and phytochemicals and healthy fat.  And guess what? That healthy fat helps you to absorb some nutrients in the avocado. This recipe is great paired with a piece of chicken breast or salmon for lean protein. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
