Introducing Avocado Light

Introducing Avocado Light

There's a reason why avocados have taken over your salad, toast, and Instagram feed. Jam-packed with nutrients, they provide enormous health benefits that would be hard to find in any other fruit. But that hasn't stopped one Spanish fruit company from attempting the impossible: that is, to invent an even healthier avocado.

Isla Bonita has announced Avocado Light, which has 30 percent less fat than a regular variety. The company further claims that it has a milder flavor and juicer texture, making it ideal for smoothies and the like. That's not all: Avocado Light is slower to oxidize which keeps it from browning much longer than your normal brand.

Is this THE perfect avocado? Unfortunately, we may never know. Avocado Light is currently only sold in Spain. The rest of us will have to wait before being able to spot these "super avocados" in the produce aisle. In the mean time, there's plenty of our favorite Hass avocados to go around!
