  • On the contrary, avocados are truly a heart-healthy fruit that offer a creamy consistency and slightly nutty, buttery flavor. Though high in total fat, the majority of the fat is in the form of monounsaturated fat, the same type of fat present in olive oil. In addition, avocados are rich in dietary fiber and offer substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals known to offer cardiovascular benefit Monounsaturated Fats Most of the fat in an avocado is a type of heart-healthy unsaturated fat known as monounsaturated fat. A 100 gram serving of a Hass California avocado offers 15.4 grams of total fat, 9.8 grams of monounsaturated fat and 2 grams of saturated fat. The same serving size of a Florida avocado provides 10 grams of total fat, 5.5 grams of monounsaturated fat and 1.9 grams of saturated fat. When eaten in place of unhealthy saturated and trans fats, monounsaturated fats lower total cholesterol and LDL, or "bad" cholesterol, levels. In addition, they tend to slightly increase HDL, or "good" cholesterol, levels, according to the Harvard School of Public Health.
