Pour it onto a Tablespoon.... swallow... done.

Easiest way of doing it, how i down my olive oil too.

There are many was to "use" avocado oil (and others). The most important thing to remember, is to cover your bedspread or couch first. I like to use a spare shower curtain.


#6

I love avocados and eat them all the time, just thought avocado oil would be a good way to change up my diet... . Just wondered if people had some good recipes specifically regarding avocado oil.


#7

I heard it has a high smoke point. which makes it good for frying

DeadRamones is correct. Avocado oil has a very high smoke point, >500F, versus say olive oil which is low, <400F. This makes it good for frying and particulary good for grilling. Other than that it's very expensive and in short supply as avocados don't produce much oil. It has a high monounsaturated content and is ths healthy, but it's lower than olive oil.
