7 awesome keto avocado recipes for weight loss.
Trying to lose weight on a keto diet?
Add these delicious keto avocado recipes to your keto diet menus.
These keto avocado recipes are perfectly fulfilling, satisfying and perfect for weight loss.
Avocado is one of the best weight loss foods on the Ketogenic diet.
It’s creamy, rich, and full of unsaturated healthy fat.
In every 100 grams of avocado, there are a mere 2 grams of net carbs and 15 grams of healthy fat.
Though it’s not a zero-calorie food and it’s actually far from it, it’s super low in carbs and helps with keto weight loss (1).
To add, because they are a source of plant-based healthy fat, it’s great for vegan Keto too.
Besides its monounsaturated fat, avocados offer many other nutrients.
There are nearly 20 different beneficial vitamins and minerals in just one avocado (2).
Those include potassium, fiber, vitamin E, K, C, B1, B2, B3, zinc, iron, magnesium, and more.
Undoubtedly, avocado is a must-have on the list of acceptable keto foods.
And that is even if you are eating keto a specific way. Whether you are doing vegan keto, pescatarian keto, or regular keto, avocado has a place in your keto diet.
Aside from its nutritional values and its rich flavors, avocado brings versatility.
Because of its creamy texture, it can work as keto spread, keto dip, and even keto dressing. In smoothies, avocados can work as a thickening agent since bananas are off-limit.
Also, it’s basket-like shape makes egg avocado cups possible. Lastly, avocado is firm despite its softer texture. This allows this fatty fruit to be sliced and cubed, adding so much variety to how we use this fatty food.
Put it all together, we have almost unlimited potential to how we do keto with avocados!
But we wanted to find the best keto avocado recipes.

Next, mash a medium avocado in a mixing bowl with a fork.
I like to sprinkle 1 tsp of avocado oil and 1/2 tsp of salt and ground black pepper to give a little kick.
Then spread the mixture on the toasted slice of Keto bread.
Garnish with pepper flakes and serve!
It’s absolutely delicious!
6. Avocado Dressing Recipe
If you love avocados as I do, then you’ll love this avocado dressing recipe.
It’s a great way to add more healthy fats to your salad in a different way than simply slicing up avocado.
Avocados also add more benefits to your health. In fact, they increase your nutrient absorptions.
Pretty amazing right?
Per the Journal of Nutrition, adding avocado can up the antioxidant absorption by 2.6- to 15-fold (26).
This is an excellent reason to always include a healthy fat source when you eat veggies. Without it, a lot of the beneficial plant nutrients will go to waste. If you’re following our 7-day vegan keto diet, make sure you eat plenty of avocados.
Ok here’s what you need to make an avocado dressing.
Avocados, avocado oil, garlic, and sea salt. Check out the full recipe here for the full ingredient list and directions.
7. Avocado Smoothie Recipe
Smoothies make great breakfast and snacks.
But unfortunately, if you are on the Keto diet, you can’t have your typical fruit smoothies.
That’s because most fruits are heavy in carbs, which make them foods not to avoid on keto.
They can potentially kick you out of ketosis.
But you don’t have to worry about getting out of ketosis with this avocado smoothie. In fact, it will help you sip your way to ketosis and curb your appetite like crazy.
It’s a favorite here on our site. If you’re looking for something vegan that will energize you, this is the smoothie recipe you want to try. Grab the recipe here.
