We know what you’re thinking — delicious and healthy? Too good to be true, right? No! Avocados are higher in potassium than bananas and are also a great source of vitamins E, K and folate. The fatty acids found in avocados help protect against prostate and breast cancers, as well as heart disease, making this scrumptious dessert a healthy one, too!
