Sweet mango and zippy mint add an extra punch of flavor to this guacamole-inspired dip. Avocados, which are the backbone of guacamole, contain a good amount of healthy polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, which help boost metabolism and keep you feeling fuller for longer.
When looking for a perfectly ripe avocado, choose one that has dark green or almost black skin. When squeezed, you should feel it yield to pressure. If you’re not planning to eat your avocado for a few days, try choosing one that is unripe (an unripe avocado will feel very firm) and leaving it at room temperature. Avocados are climacteric fruit, which means they will continue to ripen after harvesting.
A serving of half a medium avocado has more potassium than a medium banana.
