How to Prepare Avocado

Avocados are fun to eat, nutritious, and heart-healthy.


  1. Cut in half lengthwise around the seed. Twist halves apart. 
  2. Tap seed firmly with knife blade and twist to remove.  
  3. Gently cut into squares without piercing skin.  
  4. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. Discard skin and seed.
