Nutritional Bonus: This smooth avocado pesto packs a nutritional punch. One cup of avocado has 23% of the recommended daily value of folate, a water-soluble B vitamin vital to cell regeneration. Avocados also have more of the carotenoid lutein than any other commonly consumed fruit. Lutein protects against macular degeneration and cataracts, so eating avocados helps to ensure that your peepers are in top shape.
