This recipe is sponsored by the California Avocado Commission
Homemade sushi is much easier to make than you would think… and it’s way cheaper than eating at your favorite restaurant. In fact, the cost to make each of these avocado / mango sushi rolls is only about .70 cents! Now that we’re in Summer, no cook recipes are all the rage. I mean, who really wants to heat up their food when it’s 100 degrees outside? Another amazing thing about summer is that locally grown avocados are in season, and we are crazy for avocados! June is the official month for California Avocados and what better way to celebrate the creamy goodness of this amazing fruit than including it in all your meals? Seriously.
Here is the perfect way to get you started – just grab your California Avocados, mango, nori wraps and a few other ingredients and you will be ready to rock and (sushi) roll!

Not that you need any additional reasons to make this recipe, but just in case you do let’s get nerdy and talk about the nutrition in this Japanese dish.
California Avocados: one of nature’s best ingredients (in our humble opinion) that is loaded with over 20 vitamins and minerals and all of those good for you healthy fats! (did someone say guac?).
Fun Fact: One-third of a medium avocado (50 g) has 80 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it not just a tasty choice, but also a nutrient-rich choice.
Cucumbers: are loaded with water to help aid in digestion
Carrots: chock full of beta-carotene to help keeps those eyes sharp and fiber for digestion
Mango: supply us with antioxidants that help protect against certain types of cancer (and the added sweetness is a bonus too!)
Cabbage: this crunchy veggie supplies us with a high amount of fiber for just a few calories
Cauliflower: for just a few calories cauliflower supplies us with a high level of anti-inflammatory compounds
Nori: is the best source of vitamin B12 for vegans and can contain more calcium than a glass of milk! Who would have guessed!
