Toast: Take a slice of your favorite type of bread, toast it, and smear the frosting on. Add a few banana slices and blueberries for an extra boost of potassium and vitamin C and E.

Brownies: Brownies are amazing on their own, but adding a gooey frosting takes it to the next level. Layer on this avo-sensation for a healthier, replacement spread.
