Welcome to my Air Fried Avocado Slices. A new and exciting way to enjoy avocados. Dipped in a delicious coriander and lime gluten free crust and perfect for sharing. A new favourite in the Milner household.
I must admit I was a virgin as far as avocados were concerned until my late 20’s. In fact the first time I ever had one was in my favourite detox smoothie. It was a diet one that was doing the rounds at the time and was written for Katie Price while she lost weight ready for her wedding. I gave it a go (its on the blog here) when we still lived in England and have done it a couple of times since moving to Portugal.
But whenever I did, the recipe called for some avocado and I would never eat it and it just looked like fat to me and I would hardly drink olive oil, so the avocado was going to go directly into the smoothie and not into my mouth in solid form.
That is how it was for several years until I discovered Paleo and decided to see what the fuss was all about with eating avocados.
I tried one. And OMG I fell into foodie heaven. All of a sudden I was hooked on them and couldn’t stop. I would buy 12 a week from my local street trader and avocados were my new best friend.
I would have them with my chicken because it’s the law that a chicken salad must involve chicken and avocado. I would have them in a nice pretty boat with a fried egg just because it’s a great healthy start to the day or best of all as the most delicious avocado sauce to cook your meat in.
It also became my pregnancy craving while I was carrying my youngest. I used to eat at least 2 of them a day and even now as he is learning to walk he still loves avocado just as much as when he was growing inside of me.
But did you know?..…..I have never actually tried them warm. They have always been cool. Even when I had them with the fried egg I would wait until they had cooled down.
I just didn’t like the idea of it. But I am all for trying new things and my new thing is finally here in the shape of Air Fried Avocado Slices. They are my new addiction and served with a delicious thousand island sauce and I am in. I just want to eat air fried avocado slices all the time now and have found that air fried avocado is one of those things that we should all have in our diet.
You can take them to work, take them to school snack on them, have them for breakfast or for a side for dinner.
However you have your Air Fried Avocado Slices just remember these are Whole 30 compliant, Paleo, perfect for low carb diets and so much more.

- Place your avocados onto your cutting board. Remove the skin and chop the avocados into similar shapes to potato wedges.
- Squeeze lime juice of one of the limes over the avocados. Season the avocados with salt and pepper and a sprinkling of coriander.
- Place the lime rind, the oats and the seasoning into the blender and blend until you have a coarse breadcrumbs style mixture. Place the mixture into a shallow mixing bowl.
- Drown your avocados into the breadcrumbs and make sure they are well covered.
- Place them on the grill pan in your Airfryer and cook for 6 minutes at 180c/360f. Cook for a further 6 minutes at 200c/400f turning after 3 minutes so that each side has been cooked at 200 degrees.
- Squeeze the leftover lime juice over the air fried avocado slices before serving.
- Serve with thousand island or your own dipping sauce.
You need firm avocados. If you use overly soft avocados it will turn the avocados into mashed potato balls when cooked and look rather awful. You don’t need eggs or flour to make the avocados stick to the coating. The lime and the fact that avocados texture is naturally soft will do this for you. If they are not crispy enough give them another 3 minutes at 200c. Air Fried Avocado Slices Podcast We also have created a short version of the recipe into a Podcast.

Introducing Pureboo Bamboo Cutting Board
For me I was excited to be trying PureBoo pull out chopping boards as many chopping boards look the same and often are poor quality.
What I did find is that the PureBoo offers me environmental sustainability, superior health and sanitation, strength, durability along with the most natural beauty that you will ever find with a chopping board.
In fact, it is so beautiful as a food blogger you could imagine using it to take great foodie photos with or for shooting trendy food videos.
There are also 8 different size options and it is perfect for the modern day kitchen.
Here are 10 reasons to buy the PureBoo Bamboo Cutting Board:
- Anti-bacterial properties
- Easy to clean
- Grooved edge for gripping while you pull it out
- Heavy and durable
- Made from Moso bamboo
- Multiple sizes
- Replaces warped pull-out cutting boards
- Two color choices
- Water resistant
Our verdict – I don’t have a cabinet that fits a bamboo pull-out cutting board. In fact, I’ve never seen cabinetry that comes equipped with one. What a handy thing to have! My cutting boards tend to take up space on my counter or in the space above my cabinets. This cutting board from Pureboo opened my eye to something I really want.
The bamboo board is heavy. It’s not going to warp easily. It’s thick, durable, and designed for repeat use. When you’re done, all you do is wash it in warm, soapy water, rub with a food-grade oil, and put it back in the cupboard. I cut red peppers on it, something that tends to stain easily, and the stains came off immediately. No matter what I’ve cut on it, it’s not showing any signs of wear or staining.
You get a choice of sizes. The smallest board is 20” x 14”. The largest is 22” x 22”. In between, you have five other options to guarantee you get a board that fits your space. The one I tested is 16” x 22” and had more than enough room for my chopping needs. All boards are 3/4-inch thick.
The best feature – has to be that it is the perfect for chopping everything with. We chopped peppers with it, avocados, chickens and even a big salad bucket for the beach.
Cutting up the avocados impressed me the most. This is because they can often slide about and having something so sturdy to use made it so much easier and safer.
Overall – I’ve had lots of bamboo boards over the years. One thing I’ve noticed is that they’ve always seemed poorly constructed. This one doesn’t. Any glued edges use food-grade glues and create a seamless bond. Even after being washed dozens of times, it’s still sturdy.
The board fits perfectly on the top of my stove. When it’s not in use, I can tuck it with my baking sheets. As I can store it vertically, it’s taking up very little space in my cupboard. To me, that’s a huge benefit.
For the price, the quality and design of the Pureboo Bamboo Pull-Out Cutting Board are unbeatable. I wish I’d discovered these long ago!
