Thank you to GoAvo for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.
I nearly called this post, “GoAvo in the Morning. GoAvo in the Evening!” It sounds like song lyrics. It flows right off the tongue, not unlike the product itself – GoAvo®. Have you had the pleasure yet? Our local grocer now carries all three flavors.
As you can tell by my almost-title, GoAvo is a product I can spend an entire day with. An entire week! What is it? It’s a new and delicious avocado-based condiment made from all-natural ingredients for a fresh and tangy flavor. Each bottle of GoAvo contains over 90% of tasty avocado. Combined with grapeseed oil, white wine vinegar, & lemon juice, GoAvo has a creamy texture & a delicious flavor. By replacing eggs yolks with avocados, GoAvo replaces saturated fats with monosaturated and polyunsaturated fats. This means less total fat, fewer calories, & no cholesterol. And oh so delicious.
I’m a fan of condiments in general, but I’m not a fan of traditional mayonnaise. I prefer GoAvo as my condiment of choice. I know what’s in it, and I love the elevated flavors it adds to my meals. I also use it as more than a condiment – I use it as an ingredient. A filling and nourising one. I have found a way to enjoy it with every meal, and for snacks and parties too.
What would you do with GoAvo spreads?
For starters, BREAKFAST! I had to put it in all caps, but I promise I’m not yelling at you. I’m just the sort of person who dreams about breakfast the night before. It doesn’t matter if it’s Rice Krispies with a little cream in the milk, or if it’s a full plate of all of my favorites. I have a fierce hunger in the morning. GoAvo pairs wonderfully with most breakfast items – eggs, cheese, toast, etc. I made bacon in the oven, breakfast potatoes in a skillet, and two sunny-side up eggs for my breakfast. Instead of putting GoAvo right on the eggs or toast, I decided to use it as a dipping sauce for the whole breakfast.
It was so good. As someone accustomed to a little avocado with breakfast, I admired the versatility and flavor of using GoAvo instead. I know I’ll do that one again! A few hours later, I used it as a sandwich condiment for my turkey and cheese.
I mixed mine with a dijon mustard, but the GoAvo could certainly stand alone if you’re into just the mayo or avocado thing. I used the Basil flavor for my sandwich. I also heated up my a spinach tortellini soup, since I’m a soup and sandwich lover.
Later on for a snack, and because my in-laws were coming over for a belated Easter dinner, it was time to make deviled eggs. I’m in love with egg salad and deviled eggs. Cassidy doesn’t like regular mayo at all, and I can also live without it, so I made deviled eggs with GoAvo instead. You can use any recipe you want, but I used my standard favorite, which is always good:
What You Need:
1/3 cup GoAvo®
2 teaspoons (or more) of yellow mustard
What You Do:
1. Hard boil the eggs. I do them in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes, but there are lots of ways.
2. Remove eggs and cool them in the fridge.
3. Then remove shells from eggs and slice them in half lengthwise. Separate egg yolks and put the whites aside.
4. Mix the egg yolks with GoAvo, mustard, salt and pepper, to taste, and mash together until creamy and smooth.
5. Using a large star tip and plastic bag, pipe the mixture onto each egg white, filling the holes completely.
6. Sprinkle with paprika for a finish and serve!
Last, we have dinner. Cassidy makes his favorite taco recipe, using mostly fat-free ground turkey, taco spices from the co-op, grated pepper jack or colby cheese, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream. Then GoAvo as a taco topping!
