Yummiest Fresh Avocado Pesto Pizza!


I still have a giant pile of gorgeous avocados in my fridge thanks to the California Avocado blogpost I did a few weeks ago. Well besides making avocado ice cream (yes, it is yummy as can be) I have been making avocado pesto a lot.

I actually came up with this recipe one night when I was exhausted around dinner time (sound familiar!?) and I just wanted to toss some pasta in a pot and have the rest of the meal make itself. I wanted pesto, but simplified. I decided to keep the ingredients very minimal. The pesto sauce I made came out light, super fluffy and oil free. I loooooooooved it.

This Avocado Pesto Pizza has BBQ vegan chick'n cubes on top (you could do chickpeas or tofu too..) as well as fresh avocado and basil. Such a light and lovely cheese-free, super satisfying pizza recipe! Give it a swirl..

I am loving all the fitness-sharing comments on my most recent giveaway! I am super impressed! Some of you are hiking every day, dedicated to your early morning runs, trying out yoga classes, enjoying sunshine walks with your pups, bike riding, swimming and on and on. Look how much we can inspire each others' wellness goals. I love it.

One of my favorite summer activities is hiking. There are a bunch of pretty canyon-y, beach-lined, dusty path trails around Los Angeles. You just have to know where to find them. It has taken me a few years to discover my favorite spots. This is a great LA hiking guide.

So today I am sharing Five Things I Bring on a Summer Hike and my sugar-free Blueberry Plum Jam..
