For those who can’t get enough of everyone’s favourite brunch staple, here are a few uses for the creamy green goodness that don’t involve spreading it on sourdough. Consider this a little inspiration for avocado lovers everywhere.
1. Try an avocado facial for a superfood boost. Packed with vitamins E, A and B, avocados are perfect for protecting skin, removing dead skin cells and the high fat content means moisture is locked in for longer. Also suitable for those with sensitive skin, keep you face hydrated by making your own avocado mask at home. Alternatively for a professional fix try the Avocado Firming Facial at Karkloof Safari Villas and Spa which promises to boost elasticity, suppleness and hydration.
2. From avocado brownies to no bake avocado cheesecake, if you haven’t tried mixing avocado into your sweet recipes you are seriously missing out.
