This vegan cake (no eggs or butter!) is so delicious that our kids begged for more. The frosting is silky smooth, and the cake is light and loaded with chocolate flavor and healthy fats. Thanks, Ashley Kappel, at MyRecipes!

And just in case you were not sure how healthy avocados are for you, take a peek…

Avocados are often referred to as the healthiest food due to its impressive nutritional value.

An avocado contains these vitamins and minerals:

  • Vitamin B1
  • Vitamin B2
  • Vitamin B3
  • Vitamin B5
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B9
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K
  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Manganese
  • Phosphorus
  • Sodium
  • Zinc
  • An avocado contains more potassium than a banana. Avocados have 14% and a banana contains 10% potassium.
