Ever thought about drinking them?

Look, we’ve all been there. You buy a bag of avocados and suddenly they’re all ripe at the exact same moment and you’re sitting there wondering what to do with avocados that have a day or two before you’re going to have to throw them out.

And truthfully, there are tons of ways you can use them. In fact, if you’ve got enough, you could have an avocado-themed dinner and make one or two of these 5 delicious Mexican-inspired avocado recipes. My favourite is the avo and chicken meatballs.

But I bet you’ve never thought about using those avocados in a cocktail. I hadn’t either, but when I tried one of these from the South African Avocado Growers’ Association I knew it would form part of my very short list of cocktails I would make.

I’m not the biggest fan of coriander and if you’re not either it’s easy enough to just leave that out. That’s what I do.

But maybe you’re thinking, why would I actually want to drink an avocado margarita? And the answer’s simple. They are a whole lot healthier than any other cocktail you might end up making. Avos are incredibly nutritious and a great source of vitamins. They are loaded with heart-healthy fats and fibre. Plus, studies have actually shown that people who eat avocados tend to be healthier. But the best part? You get to enjoy all those health benefits while sipping on a cocktail!
