25 Vegan Avocado Recipes For Avo Lovers

Obsessed with avos? Us too! Eat ’em every day with these vegan avocado recipes!

By Lora O’Brien

If any vegetable is having a moment, it’s got to be the avocado. Apparently, it’s the most posted veg on Instagram, and celebs from Jennifer Aniston to Miranda Kerr have declared their love of it. Miley Cyrus even has a tattoo of one!

It’s hard to believe that  not long ago, the avo was avoided. Shunned due to its high calorie count, compared to other berries (yes, that’s right – I said ‘berries’ – the avocado isn’t actually a veg, it’s a berry. But I digress).

Those calories are due to the avocado’s  monounsaturated fat. Don’t worry – this is a ‘good’, unsaturated fat that can actually help lower your blood cholesterol levels and reduce your risk of a stroke or heart attack. But that’s not all!

The health benefits of eating avocados

Avos are also brimming with rich supplies of so many nutrients! There are  nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in ever serving, to be exact.

These green beauties can also help you maintain healthy bones, better digestion, clearer skin, lower inflammation and even play a role in fighting cancer.

In fact, there are so many health benefits to this fruit, it’s like, you have guac to be kidding me!  And why wouldn’t you want to eat them when they’re just SO damn creamy and tasty?  I mean, smashed avo on rye toast with a dash of lemon, salt, pepper and cilantro? It’s basically a love affair. And there’s so much you can do with an avo!

Different ways you can eat avocados

While it’s tempting to stick with something as easy and comforting as avo on toast, there’s sooo much more you can do with them! For example? Avocados can be:

  • breaded and fried (or baked), like French fries
  • stuffed and baked, like red or green peppers
  • blended into a super healthy, creamy smoothie
  • spiced up and blended into a wonderful salad dressing
  • whirred up with sweeteners or sugar to become a tasty dessert

….and so much more!

Now, for the sake of our health and our taste buds, let’s all get adding more avo to our meals! Here are some perfect vegan avocado recipes to get your mouth watering and get your body on fleek.

25 Vegan Avocado Recipe Ideas

 

1. Orange Avocado Smoothie

Sure, we know that freezing your bananas the night before allows you to create a cold yet creamy smoothie. But using avocado makes it even creamier! With tangy orange and healthy spinach, this is one of the best vegan avocado recipes for refreshing the palate after a hot, sweaty yoga class.

2. Avocado, Blueberry & Mango Smoothie Bowl

That colour though! I mean, when food can look that vibrant why wouldn’t you want to eat it?! And this smoothie is just bursting with fruit, superfoods and natural sweeteners. Blueberries give it that purple tone, whilst nut milk, mango and avocado give it that creaminess. Maca powder will give you the energizing boost you’ll need to conquer the day head on. That sweetness? Almond butter and maple syrup.

3. Avocado, Kale & Tofu Breakfast Bowl

As much as I’m of smoothies for breakfast, sometimes I like to have a yummy savory breakfast instead. And when I’m feeling like this tofu scramble is my go-to. If you’ve never made vegan ‘scramble’ before now, you need to try tofu; it breaks up into egg-like pieces and you can even give it that eggy taste by adding in some black salt. Oh, and that gorgeous yellow? It’s turmeric. A serious superfood!

4. Tofu Scramble Toast with Avocado & Sauerkraut

As a fermented food, sauerkraut is perfect for a healthy gut. The one in this dish has been made using raw cabbage and beetroot, which not only gives this recipe a brilliant vibrancy, but also a tangy sweetness. Perfect for breakfast in bed!

5. Avocado & Jalapeño Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I like to partake in a grilled cheese as often as I can. Why? Duh, it’s a grilled cheese – it tastes AH-MA-ZING. And it’s now easier than ever as there’s no many brands introducing vegan cheeses now, we have so many to choose from! This is an assortment; peppered slices of faux turkey, avocado and spicy jalapeño cheese is stuffed and melted between two slices of rosemary herbed bread. Drool!

6. Vegan Avocado Pesto

Pesto is a wonderful thing to have on hand for when you’re feeling lazy. You can use it as a spread in a sandwich, or simply combine some cooked pasta in it and top with tomatoes for a quick and easy dinner. You could even use it as a dip for some raw veggie crudites! But before you nip out to the shops, why not try and make your own? It uses only a handful of ingredients and  goes wonderfully with pasta, toast or even on tofu.

7. Creamy Avocado Vinaigrette

This is one of those vegan avocado recipes I’ll be using for a long time to come! The avocado makes it really silky in texture that you’ll have a hard time convincing yourself that creaminess isn’t from dairy.  Works perfectly over almost any kind of salad, too.

8. Roasted Veggies with Goddess Avocado Dip

Anyone else have a fetish for dunking their potatoes in a rich, creamy dressing? I don’t know what it is about slathering starches in something yummy, but it just has my mouth watering and my taste buds dancing. This avocado dip is seasoned with a bunch of herbs such as chives, parsley, basil and salt and pepper. Serve on a platter with some fancy looking veggies for a simple and easy starter when entertaining.

9. Buffalo Avocado GF Pizza

In my humble opinion, you’ve not really enjoyed the wonderfulness of avocado until it’s graced a vegan pizza. A simple, gluten free base, topped with vegan pesto, fresh tomatoes and avo slices? It’s basically avocado food heaven. Tip: To make this recipe simpler, you can always sub in a pre-made tomato sauce!

10. Best Ever Guac Recipe

Yep, guacamole is one of the most typical of all the vegan avocado recipes. But why not add a bit of a twist? This recipe below is pretty traditional, but you can always add sweetcorn, spinach, hot chilis…you name it!

11. Kale Noodle Bowl w/ Avo-Miso Dressing

This is a really quick and easy dish that takes simple noodles and transforms them into something yummy. This is the perfect recipe to make if you’re in a rush of feeling a little on the lazy side. Kale and buckwheat noodles are massaged with a simple dressing of avocado, garlic, miso, olive oil, water and the juice from 1/2 lime which you can alter to suit whether you like a thick or watery dressing consistency. Top with sesame seeds and you’re good to go!

12. Spicy Southwestern Salad w/ Avocado Dressing

For too long people have believed that salads are just pieces of lettuce. Nuh-uh! They’re SO good! And you can basically put whatever you fancy into one. Like this salad, which combines sweet potato chunks, black beans and crunchy corn with a yummy cilantro and avocado dressing. It does call for Greek yogurt, but just sub this for a vegan version, or even a vegan sour cream.

13. Naan Avocado Toast w/Pan Fried Chickpeas

What an awesome idea – Indian food comboed with avocado! I can’t wait to try this out for friends and family as a healthy starter. The combination of the soft, chewy naan bread topped with crispy chickpeas, creamy chunks of avocado and kale is super yum!

14. Grilled  Avocado Stuffed with Chickpeas &  Tahini

Think vegan avocado recipes can’t be hot? You need to try grilling your avocado to really blow your mind. The grilled avos are stuffed with a combination of cucumber, tomato and crispy grilled chickpeas. Drizzle some tahini over them and you’ve got a delicious recipe you can use again and again.

15. Chilled Artichoke Avocado Pea Soup

The colour of this soup is delicious in itself. But what’s in it?! The main components are the peas, avocado and artichoke hearts. It’s then blended with garlic, basil leaves, some chili pepper and seasoning with salt and pepper. Once blended, this soup is topped with coconut cream, chili sauce, a little more pepper and drizzle of olive oil (optional). Dive right in!

16. Chipotle Lentil Soft Tacos with Avocado Cream

If, before now, you thought lentils were bland and boring – think again! They have heaps of flavour in this dish as they’ve been spiced up with chipotle seasoning and then mixed with some avocado cream and chunks of tomato. Looking for a simple lunch or dinner to make? This is one of the best vegan avocado recipes for you! Note: This recipe calls for feta, but I just left that out. The result? The tacos in the pic!

17. Creamy Avocado Mac & Cheese

Mac and cheese is such a comfort food, and when made without dairy, it can be super healthy. So why not give it an added nutritional boost with this green recipe? It’s super quick to make, and cilantro and basil not only make it greener, they add heaps of extra flavour.

18. Tomato & Zucchini Spaghetti w/ Avocado Sauce

I like pasta, sure. But it can get pretty heavy, which is why I like to use zucchini noodles. If you’re not a fan of zucchini you can use spaghetti instead, OR, if you’re feeling really daring like in this recipe – use both! It works pretty well, as the whole wheat spaghetti is the base but zucchini bulks it up a little more and adds some colour and nutrition to the dish. But the real winner here is the creamy avocado sauce. 10/10!

19. Baked Avocado With Chipotle Sauce

Potato fries are delicious, but are full of fat – the bad kind. These, on the other hand, have all the crunch and yum factor of fries, but the fat here is good – it comes from the avocado, which is baked, not fried. And that chipotle sauce? The perfect partner! Is it any wonder this is one of my all time fave vegan avocado recipes?

20. Avocado White Bean Salad On Toast

I’m not sure what the best part of this recipe is: the high protein content? The varieties of different flavours bursting out? Or the fact that this is filling enough to make a meal? In any case, you’ll want to try this one – did I mention each serving is under 300 calories, too?

21. Avocado Chocolate Mousse

I couldn’t do a list of vegan avocado recipes without dessert, right? With sweet nut milk and rich cacao added in, avos are transformed into a delicious chocolate mousse. Caution: Make this once and you will become an addict for life! Just sayin’.

22. Creamy Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie is one of my go-to vegan avocado recipes. I love the refreshing zinginess from the lime – it’s just a delight on my palette. Traditional key lime pie is laden with a ton of sugar, not to mention eggs and dairy. You can use silken tofu to make a vegan version, sure. But this recipe uses avocado instead, which results  the perfect, naturally green shade. Fork, anyone?

23. Easy Avocado Truffles

Well, these look pretty fancy don’t they? And I bet you would never hazard a guess that they have avocado in them! They’re smooth, creamy and taste of the most delicious chocolate. Dish these up and impress your guests. And if you have little ones, these are easy enough for them to make themselves.

24. Vegan Avocado Chocolate Muffins

Healthy, guiltless chocolate muffins? HECK YES! The avocado replaces butter in this recipe. And where eggs are milk are usually used, H20 was the perfect replacement! But if you want them just that bit creamier you can use a nut milk instead.

25. Supergreens Avocado Ice Cream

I mean, c’mon, ice cream that is good for you? Count me in! But, let’s face it – healthy doesn’t always equate to being tasty. And I’ve had my fair share of gross, inedible ‘healthy’ ice creams, I can assure you. Well, girls, this is one for the recipe book! The avocado in this recipe lends this ice cream THE creamiest texture! And that colour? Green power at its best.
