Why We Love It: The taste of this pesto is light, clean and a lot creamier than traditional recipes.

The instructions are simple, and all you need is a blender. This recipe can be made in no time and only calls for 5 ingredients (most of them you'll have in your fridge or pantry already).

Prep: 5 Minutes

Total Ingredients: 5

Make It For: Both lunch and dinner: Spread it on a sandwich, put it on your pasta or use it as a pizza sauce or salad dressing, the great thing about pesto is its versatility. Make a double batch and keep it in a container in your fridge for up to a week, or freeze it to last even longer.

Why it's healthier: Avocados have more potassium than a banana: One avocado has 15% of the daily recommended potassium 4.7g, which is more than one and a half large bananas.

Healthy ingredients: Folate, magnesium, potassium, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin C.
