30th July 2021 | Eativity editors

From safe de-seeding and keeping your avocado fresh in the fridge to growing your own, avocado hacks have been going viral on social media. Now, Australian Avocados is on a mission to uncover the nation’s very best avocado hacks this National Avocado Day, Saturday, July 31. The reward? An entire year’s supply of avocados.

The giveaway, which is part of Australian Avocados’ “official unofficial” sponsorship of National Avocado Day, will see a whopping 365 avocados up for grabs. Get ready avo-lovers, because that’s 55 kilograms of avocados just begging to be smashed, sliced or diced.

For your chance to win the fruity haul, share your best avo hack on social media and tag your photo with @AustralianAvocados on Instagram or Facebook. The winner will be announced on August 17, with judges looking for originality, creativity and effectiveness.

How do you get your avocado seed out?

Comedian and TV personality Nazeem Hussain has become the face of Australian Avocados’ sponsorship drive since the launch of its Our Green Gold campaign earlier this year. Now, he’s urging Aussies to get involved this National Avocado Day.

“Australia – we want you to show us the weird and wonderful ways you eat your avocados,” Hussain says. “Delicious Australian avocados are in season and great value right now, so come on, show us how you avocado. From your best skin peeling hack to a seriously unexpected recipe, we want to see it all, so get your guac on!”

Feeling a bit flat? Brighten up your winter with an avocado-loaded fajita bowl.

Australian Avocado’s spokesperson Matthew Dwyer says this season’s avocado crop is currently in high abundance and the fruit is of great quality. Australian Hass avocado also makes for great winter comfort food without the guilt, as its creamy texture can be used in both sweet and savoury cooking from soups and pastas to pancakes and desserts.

“This National Avocado Day, we want Australians to keep doing what they do best – eating delicious, Australian-grown avocados,” Dwyer says. “With local produce being of exceptional value this year, you can now enjoy more of these delicious, nutrient-packed fruits while supporting our local avocado growers.”
