The avocado is pretty much a perfect food. Its buttery, smooth texture and rich flavor makes this fruit appealing on so many levels. Whether you whip up a batch of guacamole, munch on some avocado toast, or chill out with a dish of keto-friendly avocado ice cream (à la a famous quarterback), you’re pretty sure to find at least one way to appreciate an avocado. And the health benefits of avocados can’t be beat: They rank at the top of the list for being heart-healthy, thanks to their fiber, monounsaturated fat, potassium, and plant sterol content. When it comes to diabetes, including avocado at meals and snacks can help limit blood sugar spikes and keep you feeling full.
