Simple Avocado Crema

We have a thing for the little guys. The fruits and veggies that get ignored. The ones that get left on the field. Enter one of our favorite rescues: the tiny avocado. This oft-neglected fruit might be too small for a full meal but they’re the perfect size for single serving dressings, dips, and toasts.

Watch now to learn how to use small avocados in one of our favorite recipes—a flavorful, tangy crema.

Add a healthy dollop to your favorite tacos and salads, or serve as a dip with fresh vegetables and crackers. The best part? Tiny avocados means no leftovers to go to waste.

Haas avocados are my go-to version because they are single-serve sized. They are great to add to fruit smoothies as well. That may sound weird, but they are fruit after all.

Thank you for sharing, Susan! That sounds super tasty and nutritious. We will definitely try adding an avocado to our next smoothie! 😋🥑🙌

I love Haas Avocados, big, medium or mini, doesn’t matter!! Love them of course as a crema, aioli, on tacos or in a salad but yesterday the half of 🥑 I added to my scrambled eggs with spinach, bacon pieces and spices, gave my eggs added creaminess that was absolutely delicious!! I’ve just created my new favorite scrambled egg recipe!!!

Wow, that sounds so amazing, Renée! Thank you for sharing this delicious tip. 😋🙌
