Baked Avocado with Ricotta

With seventy per cent of the energy from fat, this simple delicious nutritious snack is perfect for keeping blood sugars stable, a keto diet or getting some extra energy to grow or fuel your activity. It is also packed with fibre so the net carbs stay low.

The nutritional yeast fills in the B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12 and salt and sriracha sauce round out the taste! Bon appetite!
