Why the avocado? Properties and benefits

Easy to find in fruit and vegetable shops and supermarkets, the avocado can be used for a wide variety of dishes and for making sauces... at a low cost!

But there is much more: this famous tropical fruit has important nutritional properties, in particular it is well known for its supply of "good" fats, the so-called monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). It is also rich in antioxidants, fibre, vitamins (particularly vitamin C and vitamin E) and minerals such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium.

In terms of benefits to the body, avocados have positive effects on the cardiovascular system, the nervous system and the gastrointestinal system. It is also excellent for those with cholesterol problems; eating avocados reduces cholesterolaemia and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and increases HDL (good) cholesterol.

As a source of fat, avocados can replace extra virgin olive oil or nuts.

Caprese-style avocado: ingredients for 8 persons

  • 8 avocado
  • 1 package of mozzarella pearls
  • 200 g cherry tomatoes
  • a hint of lemon
  • basil leaves to taste
  • salt, to taste
  • pink pepper to taste


Thoroughly wash the basil leaves and cherry tomatoes. Allow to dry. Cut the cherry tomatoes and mozzarella into small cubes.

Open the avocado by cutting it open at the long side and twisting the two sides opposite each other. Remove the stone and squeeze a little lemon to prevent the flesh from blackening.

In place of the stone, insert a few pieces of tomato and mozzarella, alternating them so that they are pleasing to the eye. Garnish with a couple of basil leaves.

If you wish, add some salt and pink salt on the avocado slice.

Arrange on a tray and serve: Have a happy and joyful Easter!
