Get ready to boost your metabolism and burn calories with this low-carb, keto avocado bun burger.
Okay, I get it… this isn’t exactly a “burger” but what a creative way to make a keto-friendly meal? This recipe is loaded with healthy fatty acids, omega-3, protein and greens. It’s everything you need to set the tone for the rest of the day or simply keep you satiated!
I’m all for adding more avocados to my diet because they make everything taste better. From avocado roses to stuffed avocado boats; there is nothing this versatile that this fruit can’t do. So, when I heard that avocados are creating a fuss in the burger scene, I had to try the latest and greatest Instagram food sensation: the avo-bun! I first hear of such a thing on a trip to Milan. This isn’t the first time I’ve created avocado bun burger like this, but this version has quickly become a fave!
This high-fat, low-carb recipe swaps the classic gluten, carb loaded burger bun with two halves of an avocado, resulting in a ketogenic food lovers’ dream. Then to top it all off, smoked salmon, ribbons of zucchini, and spinach are added.

Begin building your burger by adding a bit of spinach in the hallow area of the bottom burger, add in the smoked salmon, zucchini ribbons, spinach and top bun.
