I was feeling really snacky today so I decided to nosh on something that would not only satisfy my hunger, but my sweet tooth as well.
Today’s power snack was half of a Hass avocado drizzled with 1 tsp of honey, a sprinkle of crunchy sesame seeds and a side of homemade vanilla almond milk.
Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid.
This will satiate your sweet tooth, give you a little bit on crunch to nibble, and keep you full until dinnertime! Win win… win!
