Avocado Chips Are Here to Make Every Other Snack Your Plan B
AvoLov sells a healthy chip alternative made from dehydrated avocado.
Avocados are the most versatile food. Seriously, name one other ingredient that can be made into a pizza topping, ice cream, and beer. (Not to mention their impact on footwear.) And the spin-offs don't stop there-the fruit can also be transformed into a chip.
Yep, a company called AvoLov is selling the crunchy avocado snack you've been missing.
AvoLov avocado chips come in three flavors: pink Himalayan sea salt, chili and lime, and sriracha. While you've probably already come across potato chips made with avocado oil, these are different: They're made of dehydrated avocado and tapioca flour, which make them on the fluffier side (for chips). Plus, they're gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, keto-friendly, paleo-friendly, and vegan according to AvoLov's website. And at $4.99 a bag, they might even be cheaper than buying an avocado itself. (Related: Is It Possible to Eat Too Much Avocado?)
If you'd rather skip the flavorings, AvoLov also sells straight-up dried avocado in bulk. The company also makes an avocado powder made with dried avocado and a small amount of lemon powder. It's meant to be added to smoothies or rehydrated for an instant avo toast spread or guac. True: There's nothing like the real thing, but if you've ever had your heart ripped from your chest by an over- or under-ripe avocado, you'll appreciate the concept of a shelf-stable version. (Frozen avocado slices can also come in handy.)
AvoLov's chips make for a healthy swap for traditional potato chips, given their first ingredient. Avocados are nutritional powerhouses loaded with fiber, potassium, vitamin E, and, obviously, monosaturated fat. (See: Incredible Avocado Nutrition Facts That Solidify Your Love for the Fruit)
