A fun and delicious way to enjoy caprese–Caprese Stuffed Avocados! Vegan, gluten free, paleo, keto friendly with an oil free option.


  • ripe avocados (I like to use 1/2 an avocado per person or serving)
  • handful cherry tomatoes
  • handful fresh basil
  • vegan mozzarella to taste (I used miyokos mozzarella)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • (optional) evoo drizzle
  • (optional) balsamic vinaigrette to top


  1. Slice cherry tomatoes in half and chiffonade fresh basil. Place in a mixing bowl.
  2. Roll vegan mozzarella into small balls (if desired) and add to bowl along with salt and pepper (and evoo if using) to taste. Toss lightly to cover.
  3. When ready to serve, slice avocados in half and remove the pit. You can scoop out a little bit of the avocado flesh to make room for more filling. Fill with caprese mixture and top with balsamic vinaigrette if desired.
