Not to mention it's great for your skin and simply delicious, whether on a piece of toast or adding a bit extra to your smoothie. 

We are seeing more and more people reaching for avocados in the fresh produce aisle than a jar of coconut oil. We've even seen beauty businesses now selling refreshing avocado body creams. It seems that avocados are becoming all the rage!
