Avocados rock! They are a great source of the “good fats” (monounsaturated fats), which helps raise your good LDL cholesterol levels. But many people don’t know the simple trick to making an avocado easy to cut. Check out the 40 second video below.
And if you’ve been afraid to add an avocado to a green smoothie, start with 1/8 to 1/4th of an avocado. It adds such a rich and creamy taste.

Avocado cutting tips
- Make sure you hit the avocado seed hard enough to get the knife stuck in it.
- Don’t cut your avocado until ripe. It should not be firm or mushy when you press it. It should be somewhere right in the middle.
- Peeling the avocado gets more of the fruit flesh than if you were to scoop it out with a spoon.
