HACK #2 Use Avocado as an alternative to butter
Butter is one commodity that gets over fast, especially if it’s a baking household. A simple baking hack is to swap the butter with some freshly ripened avocados. The soft flesh of the fruit is better for your health too. It helps reduce cholesterol and fights against heart diseases.
