The Power of Avocado Oil and How to Use It
Avocado oil is a nutrient dense oil that should be in everyone’s cupboard. It’s great for cooking, skin care, and digestive health and offers more benefits than I can list. It might just be the next coconut oil… maybe.
So what’s so great about avocado oil?
Oleic acid - The same fatty acid that makes olive oil so amazing, oleic acid is good for the immune system and can withstand oxidation much better than most oils. This makes it last longer without going rancid and better at withstanding high temperatures.
Vitamin E - An essential vitamin for healthy skin, hair, and nails, vitamin E helps prevent against the oxidative damage cause by free-radicals.
Digestion - Avocado oil is great for gut health for similar reasons as avocado itself. Cold pressed avocado oil is rich in enzymes and healthy fats that help stimulate your body to repair itself.
My Favorite Ways to Use Avocado Oil
1 cup avocado oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
½ teaspoon salt
Add all ingredients to a wide-mouth mason jar, use an immersion blender and lift up and down for 30 seconds, presto, you’ve got delicious and nutritious homemade mayo!
If you don’t have an immersion blender you can use a regular blender. Start by adding the egg and on medium speed slowly drizzle in the avocado oil until thick. Add the other ingredients and enjoy!
Salad Dressings and Marinades
Try swapping avocado oil into your favorite salad dressing and marinade recipes.
