Here's How You Can Create The 'Avocado Rose' — And Why They're Important For Your Health

Amp up that avocado toast.

If you haven't jumped on the avocado bandwagon yet, the latest "avocado rose" trend might just be what you need to start.

You may have noticed the pretty, delicate avocado roses while scrolling through your health-conscious social media feeds, right between the almond butter bites, and those kale and banana smoothies that are surprisingly delicious.

And though it looks wildly professional, creating an avocado rose — or any rose-shaped food for that matter — is surprisingly easy.

As shown in the Instagram video below, simply cut the avocado into thin slices and spread it out into one long strip.

Then, gently roll the pieces inward to create a beautiful green rose you can place on your next breakfast plate.


But the avocado rose isn't just good for aesthetics — avocados are nutritious food sources that we should incorporate into our daily lifestyles.

In a list entitled "5 Reasons to Eat More Avocados," Women's Health explains how avocados can help regulate our eating habits, nourish our skin, hair, and nails, and how an avocado's potassium levels may lower one's blood pressure, among other benefits. 

Meanwhile, the avocado seed is jam-packed with antioxidants and soluble fiber for digestion — so don't let that go to waste! 

With all that in mind, it looks like this avocado trend is one that's sure to stick around.
