What's in Your Fruit Bowl ?

Finally - a 5 lb bag of grapefruit, 3 organic gala apples, 2 mangos, blueberries in fridge and freezer, strawberries in freezer
and 2 horribly ripe bananas my son swore he'd use in a smoothie :rolleyes:

Two apples, not sure of the variety. I got them from the fruit stand in the dining room, and when I washed them I removed the product stickers.

Have you ever tried using avocados when making dessert ? You can also add diced avocado when making a salad with grains, grated carrots etc.

The problem is that it's very hard to find ripened avocados here. Plus they are pricy,- they are being exported from South America. I don't think it's worth it, if i don't like it's taste itself,- (i've tried ripened avocados too, and i didn't like them even more:iiam:). E.g., i like beets as they are, so it's convenient to add them to salads, so they don't spoil the mix's taste, but, unfortunately, i don't like carrots, therefore i don't add them anywhere, even to soups, because, eventually, i still feel every taste separately. So, i want every taste to match my bad habits.:D

Most of the avocados in stores over here are under ripe. The ready to eat ones cost more than double the price. I just put them into a paper bag with an apple and they ripen within a few days.
Adding carrots was just an example. You can add any vegetable you like when making a grain/vegetable salad.

If you like chocolate, you can make a mousse using pureed avocado.

My favorite way to eat avocado is on toast...and the toast has to have Miyokos butter. :lick:
I also like it in salad.
Or mashed next to hummus and salsa and scooped with fresh pita bread (actually Greek flatbread).

I think, the most realistic scenario, is that i'll be making guacamole quite soon.:) I've been thinking about it for a long time. I just need some inspiration. I was thinking about buying expensive shop-brand guacamole in order just to try it, but, as a rule, they're not vegan. If i find ripened avocados on discount in the nearest future (there have been some occasions!), i'll be making guacamole. It will be the first step towards avocados, lol.:p

Don't buy store made guac as it really does not taste like the real thing. Authentic guac. is vegan.;)
