This easy single-serving avocado macaroni and cheese cooks in the microwave in just minutes.


  • 1/3 cup macaroni noodles
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup shredded white cheese I used monterey jack
  • 1/2 tbsp skim milk
  • 1/4 of a ripe avocado mashed
  • pinch of black pepper


  1. Using a large bowl, add water and macaroni. Microwave for 2 minutes. Please note that water will spill out during cooking/heating. Check on noodles and stir. Cook for an additional one minute and check doneness. Cook at additional 1 minute intervals if needed. Mine was after this first minute (so 3 minutes total), so I didn't need the additional cooking time.

  2. Add in shredded cheese and milk and mix in. Cook for an additional 30 seconds, then add in mashed avocado and pepper and stir. It's okay if the avocado has some chunks remaining. Stir until cheese and avocado is fully combined.
