How to Make Keto Avocado Fries
To Make the Gluten Free Dipping Sauce
Chill the sauce until the avocado fries are ready.
To Make the Keto Avocado Fries
Cut each avocado in half, remove the pits and skin, then cut each half down the middle. Cut each quarter into 2 slices, giving you a total of 8 fries per avocado.
Add the pork rinds in a mini chopper or food processor and pulse until ground into small crumbs. You can also use pork panko and skip this step.
Remove and pour into a bowl.
Add the cubed parmesan cheese and pulse until you have coarse crumbles.
It is always best to grate your own cheese, but if you’d like to use pre-grated, you can. Just read the label to insure there are no added anti-caking ingredients.
Add to the pork rind bowl, along with the almond flour, oregano, parsley, garlic salt and basil together in a bowl.
Beat the egg in a separate bowl.
Dip the avocado into the egg, then into the breading mixture (lightly, do not press into the mixture).
Shake off any excess breading and set aside.
Add the oil to a large pot with high sides and heat on medium high. Fry the avocado in small batches for only 30-60 seconds, or once golden brown.
Set on paper towels to cool slightly before serving with the dipping sauce. Store leftovers in the fridge for a couple of days.
How Many Carbs in Avocado?
Because avocado’s range in size, it’s best to determine portion size by weight. There are 4 net carbs per 2 oz. serving of avocado.
Are Avocado on Keto Okay?
Avocados are PERFECT for Keto! This is because avocados are high in several vitamins and minerals, including potassium. Avocado’s have more potassium than bananas! Potassium intake with avocados can help relieve some the symptoms people have with Keto flu.
They’re also a wonderful source of “good” fat, which is a very important component of Keto.

Tips for Purchasing and Storing Avocados
Picking out the perfect avocado can be challenging. Storing it to maximize its freshness is even more of a challenge. Hopefully these tips will help:
- Look for avocados that have uniform texture all over. If there’re soft spots, that means they’re bruised.
- Don’t judge by the color of the fruit. Avocado’s come in several varieties and the color will be different based on the type.
- Firmness tells it all. If an avocado is too firm to the touch, then it hasn’t ripen. If you’re going to need them several days in advance, these may be a good choice as they ripen well sitting on the counter. If they’re super soft, they’re either too ripe or will need to be used immediately. Gently putting pressure on the fruit is all that is needed, don’t squeeze them too hard.
- If you have an avocado that has not ripened, don’t store it in the fridge. Chilling avocados halts the ripening process. Instead put it in a paper bag on the window sill and it will help it ripen quicker.
- Once the avocado has reached the desired degree of ripeness you prefer, you can store leftovers in the fridge.
- To optimize their freshness in the fridge, sprinkle with fresh lemon juice and place in a food saver storage bag, with all the air vacuumed out. They’re usually best when used within 3 days of slicing.
- You can even freeze avocados. To do so, blend your avocados with a little lemon juice in a food processor, place in an airtight container in the freezer for up to a few months. Just know that the texture will change once they’ve been frozen.
