Avocado Aioli

This twist on classic aioli is full of many nutrients (thanks to the avocado!). Did you know that an avocado provides more potassium than a banana? This fruit also provides a lot of dietary fiber, vitamins K, B, C & E, protein and monounsaturated fat in the form of oleic acid. These monounsaturated fats help lower bad cholesterol in your blood and lowers your risk of heart disease or stroke. Avocados may have a lot of fat in them, but they are so good for you!

Try this avocado aioli as a spread on sandwiches, dip for veggies or with grilled chicken or salmon. What else can you do with this aioli? Share your ideas in the comments below.
