    ewww that looked so good - but I have to watch the sugar and that maple syrup would not be good - have you tried this with an artificial sweetner?

    These recipes sound good but do you actually spread it on bread? I thought I was supposed to stay off bread completely.

    I add guacamole seasoning with lemon juice. Mash everything up and I put on whole wheat toast

    this is a way to use it cold...

    Some years we have a LOT of avocado, and like zucchini or tomatoes in the midwest, we annoy our friends and neighbors by trying to gift them some fruit. We just had a wind storm and 40 or more of them were on the ground. After dumping them on our friends, I tried to think of something creative to do with them. ICE CREAM!!

    1 quart heavy whipping cream
    1 pint half and half
    2 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
    1 8oz can of sweetened, condensed coconut milk (this is easy to find in Hawaii….but probably also found in an Asian grocery)
    1/3 cup sugar

    Puree together all ingredients, chill for several hours then pour into your ice cream maker (usually about $25.00 at Wally World) and churn according to directions. This made about 1/2 gallon of ice cream.

    been having this every day lately, adding a little salt and pepper on the avocado, layer it tortilla, lettuce, chicken, avocado, salt and pepper and then mayo and just wrap it up.

    Mix 2 diced avocados, 1 diced mango, juice from 1 lime, diced cilantro, a little chili powder, garlic powder, and salt. Serve over fish or chicken. Makes an excellent fish taco! Also just salt and pepper or lemon juice on an avocado and eat with a spoon.

    I have two possibilities you can try:

    1)
    In green goddess salad dressing : 1 T lemon juice, 1 T water, 2 t dried tarragon, 1/4 c mayo, 1/2 c avocado, 1/4 c sour cream (you can go light or no fat on this one), 1/4 c chopped fresh parsley, 1 garlic clove, 1 anchovy fillet rinsed, salt and pepper. Soak the tarragon in the lemon juice and water for 15 min. Then everything goes in a blender.

    2)
    Avocado Mango Salad: 4 servings :
    dressing -
    2 c. lightly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley, 4 scallions roughly chopped, 2 medium garlic cloves peeled, 1 habanero stemmed and seeded, salt and pepper, 1 t lime zest, 1/4 c lime juice, 1/4 c oil of your choice.
    Process in blender or food processor until smooth.
    salad -
    2 15 oz ripe mangos peeled pitted thinly sliced, 2 avocados, 1 c grape tomatoes, halved.
    Marinade mango in 3 T dressing for 30 min. Place in serving dish. Lay avocados on top and drizzle a little dressing and salt on top. Put tomatoes in marinade bowl and coat with 1 T of dressing. Scatter over mangoes and avocados. Serve with remainder of dressing.

    1 Avocado
    1 banana
    1 cup of milk
    Blend it in the blender.
    My favourite drink.

    I blend one with 100-150mls of plant based milk, a teaspoon of cacao, teaspoon of maca powder and a small dash of maple syrup. I have this as a breakfast smoothie although it has a thicker consistency almost like angel delight.

    I also blend avocado, lemon juice, garlic and basil to stir through pasta dishes.

    I forgot that one of my favourite easy ways to use up leftover roast chicken uses avocado.

    Two handfuls of chopped up leftover chicken, a chopped avocado, a jar of commercial salsa, some chopped coriander. Season to taste and serve in a tortilla.

    I love to eat avocado and tomatoes on Ezekiel bread toast, topped with everything but the bagel seasoning. The best thing ever!
    Also, make a salad (cucumber, tomato, red pepper, black beans, feta, one whole lime and baby greens chopped up very small, or add cilantro). It's so good and refreshing for dinner.

    Not really a recipe, but I cut an avocado in half, add a small scoop of cottage cheese where the seed was removed and a dash of black pepper.
  • acpgeeacpgee Member Posts: 5,931 Member Member Posts: 5,931 Member
    We had some leftover mi cuit salmon and alioli from a weekend dinner party at our place, and a ripe avocado that needed using. Made a pretty good salad.

    I love avocado with just balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil. Yum.

    mash it up, stir in a little vinegar (or a lot, I love vinegar lol)..some garlic, salt/pepper and use in tossed salad as dressing. Also mashed, with dill (or dill relish), lemon juice and a little onion makes fabulous tartar sauce for my broiled fish. :)
