Hiyo everyone! Here’s a random post that I just decided to write because of two reasons. 1) I was looking at the avocados on my kitchen table and thinking how much I wanted to eat them (this was a while ago), and 2) How would I eat them if I could? Plus, I just got out from looking at fruit (including avocados) and flowers in  my biology lab.Did you guys know that avocado is the only fruit that is eaten by a carnivore? Interesting….jaguars are the animals that eat them by the way…

I find that people either love or hate avocados. I guess it’s a personal thing? In my case, it’s love. Frankly, I can’t understand why some people don’t like them. They’re green, they’re round, they have ginormous in your face seeds, and most importantly, they’re delicious! So, this is what happens when you’re sitting in front of your computer with avocados in front of you. Here’s a few ways I like to eat and use avocados. Go ahead and try them all if you’re bored:

  • eat it plain
  • avocados with salt or pepper sprinkled on top
  • avocados with honey or sugar
  • avocado milk
  • thinly sliced avocado on top of french toast with condensed milk drizzled on top
  • avocado in your ramen!
  • add avocado in your sandwich to spice it up
  • avocado and tuna salad in pita bread
  • guacamole
  • avocado in your sushi and handroll

Here’s some tasty sounding options I haven’t personally tried, but definitely will whenever I get the chance:

  • stuffing avocados with rice and vegetables
  • stuffing avocados with crab meat
  • drizzling lemon and lime on top
  • make it into a spicy avocado Mexican salad
  • grill avocados and sprinkle with cheese and tomatoes 
  • avocado icecream
  • DEEP FRIED avocados!!
  • FRIED avocado ICECREAM! (I’m pretty sure this exists somewhere out there)
  • heck, maybe even pour some delicious hot creamy soup into the pit of the avocado and eat it together!

Hmm, that’s all I can think of at the moment. Did I miss anything? Oh, and I did try all of the first few so don’t worry, they’re Jasmine approved. Avocados are even good as facial masks and hair masks if you guys aren’t interested in eating them (although I couldn’t imagine how that could be the case). Try some of the options out and tell me how it goes! If you don’t like avocados maybe you’ll change your mind ;)

Enjoy!

    Actually I really don’t like avocado but they’re really healthy so I always pimp them up with chocopowder. This will I will try to make a spread out of them and put them on my bread. Got any ideas to liven it up a bit?
    And how do you make milk out of them? Just blending and adding milk or something else?

    The chocopowder sounds really interesting! I have to try that sometime, thanks for the great idea.
    If your mashing them up to spread on your bread, you can also try adding some tomato slices or crispy bacon. Then top it all off with some cheese and it’ll be delicious =]
    In my family, avocado milk is usually made by adding avocado (usually half an avocado or less…the more you add the thicker the drink), milk (you want the milk to cover the avocados), and honey into a blender and mixing it all up. Since you’re not a huge fan of avocados, I recommend adding more milk and honey in yours to tone down the avocado flavor. Of course, you don’t need to add honey if you don’t want it to be sweet. Enjoy!!

    I’ve been getting bored of eating just plain avocados (like a boss [read: jaguar]), so I can’t wait to make these at home (or ask my mom mom to make them… mehehe…)!!!!!
