Apr 22, 2022 ByClaire Miles

Avocados are adored by many globally. You can eat avocados for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks! They are also pretty healthy, as they are packed with many nutrients such as vitamins C, E, K, and B6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. This article provides some unique avocado snack ideas that are definitely a step further from your usual avocado snacks! 

Strawberry Balsamic Avocado Toast

This is one unexpected combination. But the truth is that strawberries and avocados go together very well! It creates a sweet and tangy snack you never thought you needed. 

All you need are: 

  • 1 small ripe avocado (or half a large ripe avocado)
  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
  • Drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • Pinch of salt & pepper

Start by toasting the bread. Simultaneously, start mashing the avocado. Once there is a smooth paste add a pinch of salt & pepper to the mixture and mix well. If your bread is now toasted, spread the mashed avocado over the toast. On top of the toast, add sliced strawberries and then drizzle over balsamic vinegar to give it a tangy kick.

Tahini Tuna Salad Stuffed Avocado

This recipe makes a more filling snack! So if you are feeling more hungry, this should be your choice. 

The ingredients you will need for this recipe are: 

  • 1 can of tuna in 
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1.5 tsp cumin
  • 1.5 tsp brown mustard
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1 hard-boiled egg, chopped
  • juice from one lemon
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • salt and pepper to taste

Start by cutting the avocados in half and scooping out the flesh until there is about ¼ inch remaining in the shell. In a small bowl, mash the avocados and add all the remaining ingredients. Continue to combine until a smooth mixture is formed. Add the mixture to the avocado “bowls” and sprinkle with sea salt. You can also add the tuna on top of the mixture, instead of adding it into the mixture.
