How to Eat an Avocado Seed for Weight Loss

by Jari Love

Eating the meat of the avocado and throwing away the pit is a lot like going for a jog but skipping your weight-room session: It’s bound to slow your weight loss results.

 Thanks to its metabolism-boosting oleic-acid content, noshing on the mighty green fruit can help shrink your waist. But eating the meat and the pit may bolster your results. How? The pit is filled with calcium, soluble fiber, magnesium and potassium, four nutrients that have been shown to support total health, fitness recovery, and weight loss. And once you crush the seed with a meat mallet and grind it in the blender, there are tons of tasty ways to eat it. Here are a few of our favorites:

 The easiest way to consume an avocado seed is through a straw. To make a smoothie with the oft-overlooked superfood, combine:

  • two apples
  • a peeled lemon
  • half a banana
  • a half-cup of spinach
  • ginger to taste
  • half a ground avocado seed

and blend until smooth.

 Believe it or not, a grated avocado seed is a perfect ingredient to balance the flavor of spicy mole recipes. Since the pit is quite bitter and has a strong flavor, we suggest using no more than one ground pit per batch.

 Invest in a tea ball infuser and throw a chopped avocado pit inside (a pulverized seed will seep out through the holes). Toss the infuser into a mug and then pour boiling water over it. Since avocado seeds are a bit bitter, you may need to add a bit of sweetener or honey to make your drink more palatable.

    Amazing. I started taking avocado seed powder three weeks ago and the benefits are enormous.

    A quick one, can one roast avocado seed like you do green coffee?

    Hey Robert,

    Thank you for sharing the various ways one can use the pit of avocado and for your thoughts.

    I have also been grating the pit, dry it indoors and only place it under the sun for a day just to ensure there’s no moisture in it. I then grind it in the blender and boom, the powder is ready to be taken in any form.

    I confirm, doing it that way somehow does away with the bitter taste.

    I mostly use my powder in beverages (by adding fresh ginger, a spoon of honey and baobab powder Or okra seed powder with turmeric and honey or brown sugar if I really must have a sweetener). I feel good.

    Note: That’s me. I guess we need nutritional & medical evidence for the feel good factor.

    I will try out your recipes.
