Happy National Guacamole Day! 

Of course, you can't have guacamole without avocados, so in honor of one of our favorite menu items, we’ve rounded up just a few reasons we love avocados—and why you should too!

They’re actually a fruit—with less sugar

We love fruit, but have you checked out how much sugar is in your fruit salad? Enter the avocado—not only does it have all the benefits of fruit, but unlike its sweet counterparts, it has virtually no sugar. Pass the guac!

They’re the “good fat”

Avocados are rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. In fact, they’re pretty much the only fruit that contains the good fats—all others are mostly carbohydrates.

They’re one of the healthiest fruits you can eat

Avocados are packed with nutrients. Besides lots of heart healthy fats, they’re loaded with lutein for healthy eyes, plus over 20 other vitamins and minerals including B vitamins, iron, folate, fiber, and more potassium than a banana!

They’re more than just guac

Sure, guacamole is fantastic, but you don’t have to limit them to a dip. Swap out the butter in your recipe for avocado—it won’t alter the taste of your brownies—and you’ve got a healthier batch of goodies.

They’re a smoothie’s secret ingredient

What’s the secret to a super-creamy smoothie? Avocado! Don’t worry about avocado changing the flavor of your favorite smoothie—it makes for a tasty texture and boosts your intake of fruit, fiber, and good fats.

They’re the star of our famous guacamole

We confess—one of the biggest reasons avocados hold a special place in our hearts? They’re what makes our guac so delicious! Celebrate National Guacamole Day by making our celebrated guacamole at home!
