Tasty Eats | Go Avo + Easy Recipe


How do you feel about condiments, yes I asked about condiments? Maybe it's a weird question to ask, but I am obsessed with them...ketchup, spicy mayo, honey mustard and now GoAvo! I am always seeking an alternative for mayonnaise because I love chicken, egg and tuna salad- I think we can all agree that if we don't have to use it, we probably shouldn't!! Well when it comes to being good for you - GoAvo is the way to go! It's soy free, non-GMO, no artificial ingredients & all around better when compared to mayo! 
Each bottle contains 90% avocado - so you know that toast you're eating in the morning with avocado and a few red pepper flakes - you could totally use GoAvo as well! 
GoAvo was founded by Aaron and Kaitlyn who took a break from their professional careers in finance and fashion to pursue their passion...Healthy food that is actually delicious! How cool is that?! Right now GoAvo is being sold in 5 states - and if you happen to live in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York or Vermont - check out what stores are currently carrying them! Onto the "recipe" - 
When Gary was in college he loved making tuna sandwiches, but used English muffins so that he could easily eat them on his way to class- so studious! I decided to take his old favorite and make it healthier by using GoAvo.
//mix the tuna with choice of spread - I used Chipotle & Basil
//Layer on top of the English muffin with tomato & choice of cheese on top - I used American 
//Pop in the toaster oven until cheese has melted 
//ENJOY! I served ours with a side of sweet potato fries & carrots. 
But what about the taste?! It's not overpowering or potent in smell - it's the perfect amount of flavor & to be quite honest I didn't feel like I was missing anything by using this in place of mayo. I've already added it to my breakfast burrito & added the spread to an otherwise bland sandwich! There are 9 recipes to try on their website and I've got my eyes set on chicken salad next - I usually use plain greek yogurt in place of mayo - so I'm excited for a different flavor! 

I realize that this product is not sold everywhere, yet, but I'm really interested in knowing what you use in place of mayo - if you're making a recipe that calls for it.


Thank you to GoAvo for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

  3. This sounds delicious! It needs to come to the Midwest! I have to admit, I am a mayo fan, although I do like the "healthier" version that had olive oil.

  4. Sounds tasty to me!! I always use light mayo and just a smidge. In fact we has tuna salad the other night and all it took was a tablespoon. We just have gotten used to less but I really like the flavor options and enhancement with this!! Yum!

  7. This sounds delicious!! I am loving avocado and agree that if you can replace mayo you should, especially if it tastes good and is better for you! Hope they start making this available everywhere :)!

  8. Wow, what a cool product! This would be so good in wraps and sandwiches!

  9. I need to see if I can find this in Virginia! I have, probably what most consider, an unhealthy obsession with avocados haha If I'm making a sandwich to eat at home, I sometimes mix an avocado with Greek yogurt. Sounds like it is super similar to this! And what a great replacement for mayo!

  18. Condiments are necessary! I get that from my Dad, he puts something on everything!! These sound interesting though. Did you like one better than the other??

  19. YUM, I just tried an avocado for the first time a few months ago (I used to be a very picky eater and it takes me time to work up the courage to try things sometimes) and really loved it, but I haven't used it in anything yet. I've just eaten them on their own with a little salt and pepper. I can imagine this would be delicious on a sandwich, yum!

  20. I may have to give this a try! I used to not love avocado but now I can't seem to get enough!

  26. Seriously, Biana, you're my go-to girl. You're always introducing me to something new! This sounds amazing, I'll have to tell my mom to pick some up for me, since they're sold in a few stores in Brooklyn. Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having a wonderful start to your day so far!

  29. OH my goodness, I hope the GoAvo people are reading this and can start distributing in Washington! This sounds like my perfect condiment!! I eat avocados seriously everyday. I also will not be afraid to admit I LOVE mayo, much to the disgust of many others, however, agree that it's so unhealthy!!! I bet the chipotle one would be so good on a breakfast sandwich ... mmm. And the packaging is cute :)

  30. Wait this looks so good! I need to buy some!

  31. I can't wait for them to expand, I would totally carry this in my lunch bag to work! I brought an avocado to work yesterday and it's messy and it actually wasn't too good. I hate how hard it is to tell if they are ripe or too ripe.

  35. I hate mayo so I've been looking for a really great substitute! I use pesto for a lot of stuff but it's fat content is wayy too high! I'll see if I can find it at my supermarket!

  36. When you asked if we love condiments I literally laughed out loud because I always tell people I'm a condiment lover and everyone always laughs at me! This product looks great! I love that it's non-GMO and vegan. Im bummed it's not in Ca but hopefully they'll grow and come out west!

    xo, Kristina

  37. I am so jealous of you right now that you get to buy this! I want some! I usually use Greek yogurt in lieu of mayo, but it gets a little mealy. That tuna melt on the English muffin sounds divine!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm with you on loving condiments. Give me all the sauces! (When I go for sushi I ask for spicy mayo, eel sauce, and Sriracha! They must love me for the extra work. haha) Anyways I'm definitely going to try this because I love avocados and it sounds like a delicious replacement for mayo.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Derek loves tuna sandwiches, I'll have to make this for him! I seriously love condiments - dips, sauces, toppings - it makes the sandwich or meal so much better! I'm definitely going to look for this the next time we're visiting his family in NJ!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh, yum!!! I would LOVE this to make it's way to stores in Ohio! I love avocado and definitely enjoy it on toast as a filling breakfast sometimes!

  41. This sounds like a good alternative to some other condiments!!

  44. I love mayo, but am always trying to make healthier choices, I'm not an avavado fan, but I think it's a texture thing. I might can handle this...

  45. Avocado spread sounds so yummy! The chipotle and basil looks super delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  46. GoAvo sounds so good! One of our favorite leftovers during the holidays is turkey salad, and this would be the perfect substitution for the mayo we usually use!

  47. Loving how this wouldn't turn brown like "homemade" avocado spread!

  50. Honestly this stuff sounds like the perfect solution for when I can't find any good avocados in the grocery store or farmers market. Probably stays fresh way longer than a whole avocado too. Thanks for sharing!

  55. Avocado is my fave and this looks so good! I hope they start selling out here soon!

    ReplyDelete
  56. this is brilliant! i love avo, but not gonna lie, i am super lazy and i hate buying fresh produce because we never use it all! so i like the idea of having something i could keep in the fridge and use bit by bit, if that makes sense. hope they start selling it here soon! KC hates mayo so we use avo for a lot of things (when we actually use it) like i shred chicken, mash some chickpeas and then throw in an avo, and you've basically got chicken salad or whatever. delicious!

  60. In the South, we know there is NO substitute for mayo - it's just a must! That said, I love it so much I should find a healthier alternative. I haven't heard of this stuff before but I should check it out. My cholesterol will thank me, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Looks like a yummy spread and fun change of pace to mayo! I love avocado too!! Will have to give it a try! Thank you for sharing!

  70. It is been a while since I started to eat healthy food. I did replace almost everything with healthy non fat products, but I will love a regular mayo. I love tuna salad so I will try it with avocado cream.

  71. I'm the weird person that likes everything plain-- other than some occasional ketchup, but my husband would probably love this stuff!

  72. This is so awesome! I'm totally going to try this with my salads now! I made egg salad with avocados a couple of weeks ago and LOVED it. xo, Champagne&Suburbs
