Sweet Greek Avocado Toast

Greek yogurt and honey is a breakfast that has been eaten by Greeks for a very long time. Thick tangy yogurt is amazing with honey. I have been eating yogurt and honey as a Mediterranean diet breakfast for many years.  Lately, I have also been eating avocado toast for breakfast.  Then I came up with an idea: why not combine yogurt and honey with avocado? Sweet Greek Avocado Toast!  It turns out that the combo on toast is super delicious.  As with any avocado toast recipe you want to have a ripe avocado and it is best to prepare the avocado right before you eat it.  Avocado is best fresh.

This, to me, is a perfect breakfast.  Avocados are full of healthy fat, fiber, and antioxidants.  Yogurt has probiotics and local, raw honey also has antioxidants and can be a natural antibacterial food.  All of these foods are also good for digestion, another reason to eat them in the morning to start the day off right. Sometimes, I will eat this with orange slices on the side.  It goes quite nicely with herbal tea or coffee.

Make sure to use Greek yogurt for this recipe, not plain yogurt. Good quality honey is also recommended (local, raw honey is the best if you can get it).  This is supposed to be a healthy recipe so I wouldn’t ruin it with overprocessed honey. Because this is such a simple recipe, like so many Mediterranean diet recipes, you’ll want the best quality of ingredients for the best tasting, and healthiest outcome.

How to choose an avocado – If you are planning on making the perfect avocado toast recipe, you should plan a few days ahead, because you never know how ripe the avocados in the store might be.  When choosing an avocado, lightly press the avocado with your thumb and forefinger.  If it is soft to the touch then it is ripe and ready to go.  If it is still very firm you will need to let it ripen for a few days before using it.  If your avocado is getting too ripe you can refrigerate it to slow down the ripening process or simply use it as quickly as possible.  Once the avocado begins to brown inside it becomes bitter and should be thrown away.

    This is a new favorite recipe. I add some cinnamon on top of the yogurt. I have also tried it with Smoked Paprika sprinkled on the yogurt and some garlic powder & salt in the avocado and no honey. It is matter of if you want sweet or savory.
