start your day with some avocado soft serve ice cream!

hey, who says you cannot start your day with a healthy dessert?

or maybe minty chia seed pudding with hemp milk is a better option.

also, have a  mint chip no sugar recipe

or avocado donut (low in sugar)

mmm sweet and savory ;)

make yourself and friends some sweet potato guacamole and serve along side some pulp crackers or perhaps some green crackers like Twin Cakes Savory Kale Cracker

mmm love all sorts of green foods! Just cut into a HUGE avocado (a different variety than haas but not sure what its called) this morning and thinking of trying out a guacamole or chilled avocado soup, which is probably similar to some of your smoothies you make now that I think of it.
