The Power of Avocado and How to Use it


Avocado oil is a nutrient dense oil that should be in everyone’s cupboard and it's one of my personal favorites. It’s great for cooking- even high heat, skin care and digestive health and offers more benefits than I can list. In fact, coconut oil used to be my go to for skin care, but now I primarily use avocado oil. It might just be the next coconut oil… maybe.

So what’s so great about avocado oil?

Oleic acid - The same fatty acid that makes olive oil so amazing, oleic acid is good for the immune system and can withstand oxidation much better than most oils. This makes it last longer without going rancid and better at withstanding high temperatures.

Vitamin E - An essential vitamin for healthy skin, hair and nails, vitamin E helps prevent against the oxidative damage cause by free-radicals.

Digestion - Avocado oil is great for gut health for similar reasons as avocado itself. Cold pressed avocado oil is rich in enzymes and healthy fats that help stimulate your body to repair itself.

My Favorite Ways to Use Avocado Oil

Homemade Mayonnaise

1 egg

1 Cup avocado oil

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

½ teaspoon salt

Add all ingredients to a wide-mouth mason jar, use an immersion blender and lift up and down for 30 seconds, presto, you’ve got delicious and nutritious homemade mayo!

If you don’t have an immersion blender you can use a regular blender. Start by adding the egg and on medium speed slowly drizzle in the avocado oil until thick. Add the other ingredients and enjoy!

Salad Dressings and Marinades

Try swapping avocado oil into your favorite salad dressing and marinade recipes.

Creamy Lemon Basil Avocado Oil Dressing

1 Tablespoon homemade mayo

¼ Cup avocado oil

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

10 basil leaves, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

Mix all ingredients together and serve with fresh greens.

Tamari Ginger Avocado Oil Marinade

1 inch piece ginger, finely chopped

¼ Cup tamari

¼ Cup avocado oil

Use as a marinade for chicken breasts, steak, tempeh or pork chops.

Add all ingredients to your blender and process until super smooth.
