I don't think there is anything more pleasing to the eye than a perfectly ripened avo! Besides being a great source of natural fat, avos are just damn right delicious! They are great for sweet and savoury dishes.
The best dessert you could possibly make with Avo's is, Avo Chocolate Mousse! Not only does this velvety chocolate dessert taste utterly decadent, its made of wholesome, natural ingredients, dirties little beyond your food processor, and is dead easy to make, even the most helpless and inexperienced of cooks can prepare it with absolute success. You replace your cream and eggs with the avo, and if you are wanting a vegan option you use almond milk instead of cows milk.
Now onto the savoury Avo.
Guacamole is so easy to make and even easier to pair with a variety of dishes. It is delicious on toast for a snack or Mexican breakfast with poached eggs and a spicy tomato relish. You can't forget about Nachos or Tacos, the ultimite party food! Served with spicy mince, sour cream and cheese.
Follow our step by step recipe on how to make the best guacamole.
