Avocado Round Up

I mentioned in my flurry of avocado recipe posts that I was gifted with a flat of avocados, causing my mass baking of avocado recipes. So if you’re looking for some avocados recipes, I have quite a few ideas…

Now that I’ve finished using every last avocado in my house and finished posting all the recipes, I thought I’d do a round-up and talk a little bit more about the avocados I received.

The flat of avocados I received from the Peruvian Avocado Commission were Peruvian Hass Avocados. Until now I’ve only been familiar with California Hass Avocados. The Peruvian ones are now available in grocery stores in the U.S., starting this summer. Since they are Hass variety, they look and taste pretty much like the California Hass ones I’m used to. Same bright green edges, followed by yellow. Same nutty finish. But next time you’re in the grocery store, you can check the label to find out where your avocados are coming from. These ones say “Produce of Peru.” You can find out more about Peruvian Avocados here.

I made so many avocado desserts, that I created a recipe category for them, which you can view here. Here’s a round-up of my favorite top 11.

One Bowl Avocado Macaroni and Cheese

Five Minute Avocado Chocolate Pudding

3 Ingredient Avocado Chocolate Cookies

      It’s too hard for me to choose one!

    So these are in no particular order? I tried the chocolate cake and messed it up, but I think I have enough puree left in the freezer to try one of the mug cakes. I’m trying to grow my own though, so hopefully I can try a few more next time they’re on sale – I need more pits!

      No particular order. These are just my favorite 11 recipes out of all the ones I’ve tried. Hope the mug cake goes well!
