Does the world really need another avocado toast recipe? I mean, we all know that just the combination of avocado and bread is already pretty amazing. But let’s be a little adventurous and take it to the sweet side for breakfast!

Although avocados are usually seen in savory dishes, they’re also used in desserts in some cuisines. I remember tasting my first Vietnamese avocado smoothie, a rich combination of avocado and sweetened condensed milk, and being pleasantly surprised that avocados actually have a fairly neutral flavor and swing to the sweet side easily.

I wanted to mimic the flavor of the smoothie in a sweet avocado toast, but I replaced the sweetened condensed milk with a honeyed Greek yogurt to keep things sensible for breakfast. It adds a tangy, creamy base for toasted bread that’s piled with buttery avocado slices. The last keys to this satisfying breakfast are more honey drizzled over the top, and a sprinkling of flaky sea salt to pull it all together.

Honey-Yogurt Avocado Toast

Serves 1

Nutritional Info


  • 1 slice

    hearty sandwich bread, such as peasant bread, sourdough, whole-wheat or multi-grain

  • 2 tablespoons

    plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon

    honey, plus more for drizzling

  • 1/4 teaspoon

    vanilla extract

  • 1/2

    medium avocado

  • Flaky salt, such as Maldon, for sprinkling


  1. Toast the bread. While the bread is toasting, mix the yogurt, 1 teaspoon honey, and vanilla together.

  2. Spread the yogurt mixture on the bread. Cut the avocado into 1/4-inch-thick slices and lay the slices, overlapping slightly, to completely cover the yogurt. Drizzle with more honey and sprinkle with the salt.
