The most delicious avocado recipes you can eat on a Keto diet.
Bon Appétit is the French way of saying ‘enjoy your meal’.
Well, get ready to enjoy these yummy avocado recipes listed below.
Avocado is an essential food on the Ketogenic diet.
This creamy delightful fruit is a Keto diet godsend. They are one of nature greatest gifts to the humankind.
With a mere 2 g of net carbs and 15 g of heart-healthy fat in 100 grams of avocados, it’s the perfect food to have on keto (1).
Not just that, 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 foods on the keto diet.
In cooking, they are a useful addition.
Their richness and creaminess make great additions to keto smoothies and dressings. They thicken the liquids and adds creaminess.
From salads to egg cups, avocados make just about anything better without the carbs!
It’s really hard picking just 7 recipes to name as the best and most epic avocado recipes, but these made the cut!
Here are 7 our favorite avocado recipes that are keto friendly.
1. Baked Avocado Egg-In-A-Hole

All you need is 2 avocados, 4 large eggs, and a few other kitchen staples. You got yourself a fatty, low-carb meal. Grab the full recipe here (Baked Avocado Egg-In-A-Hole).

6. Avocado Dressing
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 something vegan that will energize you, this is the smoothie recipe you want to try. Grab the recipe here.
