How to make Avocado Deviled Eggs
- Boil and peel eggs and discard the shells.
- Cut boiled eggs in half and put the yolk into a food processor and the white halves onto a plate.
- Add avocado, sour cream, the juice of half a lime, and salt and pepper to the food processor.
- Process for 20 seconds and then scrape down the sides of the bowl.
- Process for another 20 seconds, making sure everything is smooth.
Before starting Keto Avocado Deviled Eggs, you must start with the egg! No matter whether eggs are pressure-cooked or boiled, having a solid-boiled egg is a requirement. Personally, I prefer to use the Ninja Foodi as they make easy peel hard-boiled eggs.
Once eggs are done and peeled, boiled eggs can be stored easily in the fridge, making for quick deviled egg prep.
How to Fill Eggs
- Place a large tip into a disposable piping bag and fill the bag with the filling.
- Pipe the egg and avocado mixture into the center of the egg white shells.
- You can always just do a spoon scoop, but if serving at a party, piping with a pretty tip makes the centers even and beautiful!
Can you substitute sour cream for mayo?
Absolutely. While this deviled egg recipe has no mayo in the original recipe, it is easy to substitute for real mayo like a traditional deviled egg would be made.
What if my eggs are more yellow than green?
The color will depend on the balance of the green avocado, how yellow the egg yokes are, and the white sour cream. Often, when I see really green eggs, it’s because they removed the yellow yokes or used more white. It’s like playing with a food color wheel!
Will the centers turn brown because they have avocado?
Just like anything with avocado in it, the filling will brown. It may take a bit, but it will brown. I’d suggest using Fruit Fresh. Toss this in when you puree it all in the food processor.
What is the best way to boil an egg?
Eggs for deviled eggs should be solid. This is typically done by hard boiling an egg for 12 minutes. However, I prefer to use a pressure cooker. Use a pressure cooker to boil a ton of eggs at once quite easily! Check out my Ninja Foodi Hard Boiled Eggs tutorial for perfectly peeled eggs (which make great deviled eggs).
What piping bag tip was used for these Avocado Deviled Eggs?
How long are deviled eggs ok for in the fridge?
Deviled eggs have a shelf life of approximately 1 day before they leak moisture into the container. They can still be eaten on day 2, but are best fresh. Additionally, the avocado center will brown, and while it doesn’t affect the flavor, it can be unappealing to some.
Are Deviled Eggs Keto & Healthier?
Even when not made with avocado, most deviled eggs are, in fact, KETO. The only concern is ensuring the deviled eggs are not made with extra additive ingredients like honey mustard.
But these Keto Deviled eggs are made with no mayo and mustard, and instead, bring in delicious high-fat Avocado.
