12 Avocado Recipes For Spring That Prove There's More To Life Than Guacamole

If there was one recipe that brought long-awaited and much-deserved foodie fame to the avocado fruit (vegetable? I have no idea...), it was guacamole. But guess what? It can get so much better than that — just take a look at these spring avocado recipes if you don't believe me. As much as I love having some smashed avocado on crispy chips, having it in the form of popsicles, dip, and "egg-ocado" (don't worry, you'll see) is something I just can't say no to. And chances are, next time your avocado is ripe, you'll be feeling the same way...
