A ~ Avocado!

 
I was introduced to this royal fruit long back during my school days. However I knew it as "Butter fruit" rather than its name Avocado. When I first tasted Avocado little did I know of its benefits or how it can be used in various cuisines. My thoughts limited to only a fresh fruit juice with a little milk and sugar. Of course it is yummy, but the horizon expanded when I landed in  the States and saw it being used for a chips dip. Tasted nice!! From that day I love using this wonderful fruit in various recepies. It tastes good as a fresh bread spread, goes well in a light vegetable soup, can be layered in a chocolate mousse. The list would only grow.
 
This fruit is native of Mexico which has various benefits. I would link you to a website that gives you an idea of why Avocado should be a part of your diet.
 
Hope this is a good start on the A-Z series. Catch you tomorrow with another story with B.

Hi Ashwini .. aren't avocados delicious - ever since I came across them .. they just add that little extra.

Now putting some in a chocolate mousse is not something I'd think about!

Good to see and enjoy the A-Z .. have fun .. cheers Hilary

I love avocados. I mostly eat them on sandwiches--like a turkey with provolone cheese, or with eggs in an omlette.

Avocados are the best fruit because you can use them for everything! I often just eat them plain, like an apple. I've never had it with milk and sugar but I'm excited to try it.
