Bacon, Avocado Keto Burger And ‘Fries’
This recipe from simplygoodfats.com is a fantastic choice if you miss a traditional burger and fries. The dish does involve multiple different parts, but it isn’t as complex as it looks either. You’re basically just making a bunless burger, along with an alternative to regular fries. The finished meal looks amazing and is certain to be popular too.
Avocado Key Lime Pie
One of the amazing things about avocado is that it works well in sweet treats and savory dishes. This pie from sweetashoney.co is one sweet example. The dessert isn’t as sweet as a regular pie, but that’s entirely a good thing. Despite the appearance, you can’t taste the avocado in the pie at all. This makes it a perfect treat for family members who aren’t fond of avocado. Lime has a similar color, so diners mightn’t even realize there is avocado in there.
Creamy Avocado Pasta With Shirataki
Here’s a completely different type of recipe to try out. It comes from happyketo.com and the avocado is part of a creamy pasta sauce. The recipe takes advantage of shirataki noodles, to give you something that is similar to pasta, without all of the carbs. The recipe is a very simple one, but this doesn’t make it any less powerful. You just need a total of six ingredients and those are all easy to find.
Creamy Avocado Egg Salad
Like the previous recipe, this dish from gimmedelicious.com takes advantage of the creaminess that avocado has to offer.

Chocolate Avocado Chia Pudding
Puddings like this one are such a fun way to use avocado. You get all of the healthy fats and nutrients from the fruit, without having to taste it at all. The avocado also adds an amazing creaminess to the pudding, one that you wouldn’t get otherwise. This particular version comes from befresh.ca and it is a chia pudding. This gives you the health benefits of chia seeds too, as an added bonus.
Grilled Avocado Bruschetta
This recipe comes from abbeyskitchen.com and it is promoted as an easy low carb appetizer or snack. It’s easy to see why. The bruschetta would be fast to throw together and easy to eat too. I love the vibrant colors. These really help the avocados to stand out.
On a side note, the avocados are also grilled. This changes the texture and the flavor somewhat, making them taste simply amazing. Honestly, you don’t know what you’re missing until you try grilled avocado at least once.
Chicken Salad With Avocado
This dish from giverecipe.com includes avocado as just one ingredient in a larger salad. This style works very well, as you’re getting plenty of healthy ingredients and flavors in the dish. You’re also getting a full meal, rather than just a snack. I can think of many cases where that would be relevant. The best part is that the dish doesn’t even look like it is keto friendly. You could even give it to people who hate the concept of keto.
Keto Avocado Dessert
Here is one of the easiest keto desserts that you will ever find. I’m not joking. The recipe only involves three ingredients and takes five minutes from start to finish.

Another cool thing is that the recipe is simple. You don’t need many ingredients at all. You’re also getting 10 grams of protein per serving, making this a filling breakfast choice.
Bacon Avocado Soup
If you want something different, what about this bacon avocado soup? The recipe comes from thatslowcarb.com and it seriously looks amazing. The combination of avocado and bacon is a very good one, while the soup style is just a little bit different.
Lindsay does mention that you need to be careful with seasoning. The soup has subtle flavors, so you’re going to need some salt. Just make sure you don’t overdo it, as bacon is salty in its own right.
Ketogenic Baked Eggs And Zoodles With Avocado
Zoodles are a great keto diet addition and this recipe uses them in a very unusual way. I absolutely love the nest style, especially as the runny egg yolk would flavor the zoodles well. The recipe comes from purewow.com and mostly focuses on the egg nests, rather than the avocado. In fact, the avocado is mostly just included to add to the fat content of the finished dish. This isn’t a bad thing and the recipe is certainly worth trying for yourself.
Chocolate Avocado Truffles
These chocolate truffles offer a simple type of keto treat. The avocado adds creaminess to the truffles, while also providing a snack that’s rich in healthy fats. The truffles are easy to make and don’t rely on many ingredients either. They’re also very low in carbs, with only one gram of net carbs per serving.

Baked Avocado Cups
This recipe from realsimplegood.com is another example of how you can use avocados as a bowl for other ingredients. As Erica mentions, there are plenty of options for toppings. You can change up the ingredients based on your flavor preferences, along with whatever you happen to have in the house. The nutritional details will vary depending on the ingredients that you use, but the snacks do tend to be high in protein and healthy fats.

You could swap in (or out) ingredients based on what you enjoy. The end result is bound to taste fantastic no matter what.
Avocado milk is an unusual idea, but this recipe from eatbeautiful.net allows you to make it. You can simply drink the ‘milk’ as-is. It will store in the fridge for a few days too, so you can make it in advance if you need to. Megan includes some variations to the recipe, in case you follow specific diets. For example, AIP and GAPS dieters will need to use a different sweetener that keto dieters.
Egg And Prosciutto Stuffed Avocado Boats
This final recipe comes from thetoastedpinenut.com. It is one more recipe that takes uses half of an avocado as a bowl. You’re including a runny egg in the mix too. While the style has been done before, the inclusion of prosciutto makes this a stand out dish. You can add on some toppings too, like the pickled red onions shown in the image.
