Deviled eggs are one of those holiday appetizers I always look forward to. But for whatever reason, we tend to skip over them as an everyday snack.

Are Avocado Deviled Eggs Healthy?
Yes! These avocado deviled eggs are just that—healthy deviled eggs! They’re not only made without mayo, but these avocado deviled eggs also have a limited number of ingredients—the majority of them being spices. Here are just a few of the benefits you can expect when learning how to make deviled eggs, specifically, delivered eggs without mayo.
- Protein-packed—A single egg contains 6 grams of protein, with all of the essential amino acids. Eggs are also nutritious containing vitamin A, vitamin B5, vitamin B12, folate, and more!  There’s also the added protein boost from my secret ingredient I’ll reveal in just a moment.
- Healthy fat—Avocados contain mostly monounsaturated fat, with little amounts of saturated fat and polyunsaturated fat as well. Monounsaturated fat is considered to be a healthy fat and has even been linked to some health benefits like decreased inflammation.  A diet rich in monounsaturated fats has been shown to increase high-density lipoproteins in your body (the good type of cholesterol), and decrease low-density lipoproteins (the bad type of cholesterol).
- Smooth skin—The big reveal of my secret ingredient: collagen peptides. This healthy deviled eggs recipe contains just a few scoops of a Super Youth collagen peptide powder, which helps replenish the body’s supply of collagen to help smooth out skin, reduce wrinkles, and help create an overall youthful appearance. Super Youth is also unflavored and completely undetectable, so you can easily add it to any of your favorite recipes for a boost of skin, and body-loving ingredients!
How To Make Deviled Eggs
If you know how to make deviled eggs the traditional way, then you’re an automatic pro when it comes to making deviled eggs without mayo. The only difference in this recipe is the filling. Instead of mayo, this delicious center is mixed with avocados, for a healthier fat your diet will appreciate.
After preparing your eggs, you can get started on the filling. Combine the cooked egg yolks, avocados, collagen powder and spices into a food processor and you’ve got a creamy mixture you’ll want to eat by the spoonful! Taste test your mixture before putting it into your sliced eggs to make sure the spice content is to your liking. You can always add in more jalapeno for a little more spice, some more lime for a little more zest, or a little more of anything depending on your preferences! This recipe started off as mine, and now I want you to make it yours!
