This is tasty served over almost any type of white fish, as a condiment for tacos, or just about anything your heart might desire.
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

I had never eaten avocado sweet before I went to Viet Nam. I have to admit I was a little skeptical. I have always been an avocado lover, in sandwiches, tortilla soup, burritos or in guacamole. My first time eating avocado in dessert form was at a night time street vending stand in Viet Nam.
Around 5pm at night the stands with there bright "Sinh To" (which means blended fruit drink) signs, short plastic tables and chairs were set up. Here you can get mixed fruit shakes, including mango, papaya, banana, pineapple, and avocado. As I began to drink my sweet avocado shake I tried to not think of it as the salty creamy sensation I so loved, but rather I tried to think of it as a new fruit I had never had, in order to avoid my notions of how I thought it should taste get in the way of me enjoying this new treat. I fell in love with this sweet creamy dessert.

Living in fabulous "Bay of Plenty" in New Zealand, we get heaps of cheap avocado. I mash them with sweet chilli sauce and lime juice, and either eat them or freeze them. Scrummy! In the shops now, you can buy a commercial version of this, but its more expensive.

I love fresh avocados and can sometimes get really good deals on them. Does anyone know of a recipe or if you can freeze them in any way? TIA

We have two favorite avocado recipes.
1. Halve the avocado. Remove the pit (sink a sharp knife into it, then twist the knife-and-pit until it releases and you can lift it out). Pour a small quantity of balsamic vinegar into the depression and lightly sprinkle sea salt around the cut (flat) edge. Yummy!
2. Remove seed from avocado, scoop out the green flesh and cut into bite-size pieces. Add a cut-up tomato and a small amount of cut-up onion. Mix together. Sprinkle sea salt lightly over the top; enjoy.
I slice avocado in strips, salt and roll up in warm flour tortilla. Depending on your taste, you can add salsa. Fattening but OH SOOOO GOOD!
Yes, you can freeze them if you make guacamole first and put them in zip-lock freezer bags. I wouldn't try to freeze them whole or in strips as they are likely to turn to mush. But guacomole can be successfully frozen and thawed...
YUM! Avocados are my favorite! You can use them in all kind of recipes. Slice or dice them and put them on a romaine or kale leaf with other veggies and have a healthy roll-up. Make a super guacamole, top off your favorite salads, add to carrot juice to make a very refreshing cool raw carrot soup. Endless ideas and yes, you can freeze them. Peel and Pit and dice or slice and freeze.
Do a search on avo recipes to come up with tons more.
I had a huge tree when I lived in California. I used to make my version of guacamole and freeze it. It froze without problems. If you get discoloration, stir it in -- it's only on the top. Guacamole: Mash avocadoes and mix in lemon juice and salt. You can always add chilies and tomatoes when you thaw it out. MMMM!!!!
I read recently that in Brazil they use the avocado as a dessert ingredient. Here's a recipe I found:
Creme de Abacate (Avocado Cream)
Brazil is possibly the only cuisine that sweetens avocado and serves it as a dessert, rather than salted as in guacamole or salads.
2 medium Avocados
2 tablespoon Lime juice
4 tablespoon Granulated sugar
1/4 cup Ice water
Peel and slice the avocado, discarding the seed. Place fruit, lime juice and sugar in a food processor or blender.
Puree at high speed until completely smooth. Add a little water if the puree is very stiff (some prefer white wine). It should be absolutely smooth and creamy. If lumpy, force through a wire strainer. Serve in a clear glass.
Ohh my favorite Avacado recipe.
Flour tortilla with sliced avacados squeeze of fresh
lime or lemon and alfalfa sprouts dash of salt roll
Sliced avacados on cold turkey sandwiches are so
maybe try typing in avacado recipes in search engine
and see what is out there...
enjoy some for me.
I love avocados! I freeze them mashed up with a lil lemon juice added. I also like to slice them and add to a warmed tortilla with bacon! YUMMY! Or even on bread with bacon!
Want a nice looking green plant....try planting the seed...you have to bring it in in the winter since you are near my area, I know this for a fact. My sis and I had our Mom plant and grow one, it was pretty big but a cat knocked it over and used the bathroom in it and she threw it out. Good luck!

Mash the avacado(es). Squeeze some lemons and/or limes over them. Add several shakes of: onion powder, garlic powder, and salt. Mix, taste, and freeze. My kids love it.
Try a "BLA"...just like a BLT but with avocado instead of tomato. Yummy!
Our favorite way to eat avacadoes is just slice and use them to top Ritz crackers...Go great with a large tossed salad. If they are too ripe to slice, just mash them and use as a spread. I refrigerate them if they become ripe before I am ready to use them, and they will keep a little longer, but have never tried freezing.
I have just been give four avocados. What are some "quick" recipes for using them? Thanks for any help.
By Elayne from Dalhousie, Nova Scotia
# 1 large ripe avocado
# 1 tablespoon mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip)
# 1 teaspoon lime juice
# 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
# 5 -6 drops hot pepper sauce
# 1/4-1/2 teaspoon coarse ground garlic salt
Prep Time: 3 mins
Total Time: 3 mins
1. Slice avocado lengthwise; remove pit and scoop avocado into a small bowl; add mayonnaise, lime juice, worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, and salt; stir and mash the ingredients together (chunky guacamole takes less stirring and mashing while creamier guacamole takes more) until guacamole is preferred consistency; serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate if desired.
2. NOTE: Lemon juice may be substituted for the lime juice ~ You'll still get yummy guacamole!
California Grilled Chicken
Marinate chicken breasts in some Italian Dressing, brown one side , turn over and place your avocado slices on the chicken. Place a slice of your favorite cheese over the avocado...Swiss or Jalapeno Jack. Turn heat down, add 1/4 cup water to pan and cover for 5 minutes or till done. (Keep an eye on how much water is is pan). Tender, flavorful and a wonderful way to use avocado.
I use avocados in a lot of recipes! Here are my two most favorite:

I'm looking for an easy Chicken Tenders with Avocado recipe. I do not like it hot (no Tabasco or red chili peppers)!

Prepare your chicken tenders however you like them. I like to saute mine in a bit of chicken broth in a non-stick pan and season with salt and pepper. You can also use the breaded prepared ones that you bake or fry if you want to.
Combine salsa and ranch dressing in a small bowl, using equal amounts of each.
When tenders are cooked, place on a tortilla wrapper, add avocado slices and baby spinach leaves and roll, tucking in both ends. Cut each prepared and rolled tortilla in half, on the diagonal.
Serve with a little bowl of salsa ranch dipping sauce.
