I'm always looking for quick and easy snacks that taste good. After telling you about my salty avocado snack idea, Sugar user The New Black made this snack suggestion. Since I love avocados ever so much, this sounded really delish.
- Cut an avocado in half. Use the side without the pit, and save the other half for later since the pit can help keep the green flesh from browning.
- Fill the hole with two ounces of lowfat cottage cheese (I like Breakstone's).
- Use a spoon to scoop bites right out of the avocado peel. You don't even need to bother with dirtying a dish.
This easy snack contains:
|Serving Size||1/2 avocado + 2 oz. lowfat cottage cheese|
|Total Fat||15.9 g|
|Saturated Fat||2.8 g|
I know it seems like a lot of fat, but remember, it's the healthy fat your body needs. It's very low in saturated fat, which is the unhealthy fat. So snack away!
