Posted: Updated:
(3TV/CBS 5) -

From avocado toast, dips, mixed with chocolate and even a face mask. The versatile avocado has so many health benefits.

Lifetime nutrition coach and trainer Andrew Garritson shows you how this versatile fruit makes more than guacamole. 

Avocados are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, as well as a good source of Vitamins C, E and K. They are also high in oleic acid content.

Here are some great ways you can enjoy avocado at the Life Café: 

1.    Emerald Energy Shake

2.    Add it to a Sandwich or Panini, like the California Chicken or the Turkey Avocado Sandwich 

3.    Always Great in a Salad like the classic Cobb Salad

4.    Avocado Boats from our LifeTime 60 Day:
-Made with Eggs, bacon and avocado 

5.    Avocado Mousse Made with Chocolate Collagen Protein

  • * 2 Avocados
  • * 4 scoops of Chocolate Collagen Protein powder

  • * tbs. of coconut oil

6.    Use it in a Face Mask

Avocado is also great for your skin dating back to ancient times.  Life Time's Experience Life Magazine features several masks featured, one with honey, another yogurt and even masks made with oatmeal, apricot and banana.
