Slicing prettily into crescents of soft, creamy green, they’re one of the most Instagrammed foods of our time.

But they’re so much more than simply photogenic. Avocados are rich and decadent in texture and taste, a breeze to prepare and, best of all, genuinely good for us.

Whilst most creamy foods come with a health warning obliging us to consume them in moderation, avocados give us buttery textures and nutty flavours with no downside. In fact, an avocado a day could just keep the doctor away.

Boasting nearly twenty vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients and plenty of fibre, they’re full of goodness. They’re also almost devoid of the bad: no cholesterol, no sodium, only small amounts of saturated fat, and plenty of healthy unsaturated fat.

Spread them on your breakfast toast, mash them into a zesty guacamole or blend them into a cold summer soup... this is one versatile tropical fruit that will enhance just about any dish you add it to.
