VeganMoFo 05: I like my avocado sweet!

avocado

One thing that almost always brings me puzzled looks and questions is the way I eat my avocados. I’ve been used to eating avocado as a fruit (which they are really!) and so, almost always eat them sweet.

I very often have an avocado for breakfast. Just cut in half, diced and sprinkled with sugar, that’s how I like it!

But mind you, unlike when using avocado in salads or other savoury dishes, when eating avocado as a fruit, it has to be perfectly ripe, soft and more on the mushy side. This is when it tastes best!

Today I decided to have a fancier avocado breakfast. I had it with banana smoothie which was very refreshing.

Boyfriendlovlie had some too but he said he would rather have this as a dessert! Well then it’s up to you, maybe a dessert after breakfast!

Ingredients (1 serving)
1 pot (125g) soy yogurt (any flavour you like, I used mango and peach)
1 banana
¼ cup (50ml) soy milk
½ avocado (or a whole if small)
Raisins, dried fruit (optional)
Dessicated coconut (optional)

  • Place first 3 ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
  • Pour into bowls.
  • Cut avocado in half, remove the stone. Then dice the flesh while still in the skin (taking care not to pierce through the skin). Then scoop out the diced pieces.
  • Place avocado pieces, dried fruits and coconut onto smoothie.

  2. I like eating them both ways.

    In college I had a friend from Guinea-Bissau, and he was the same; the thought it was the strangest thing to put avocado in a savory dish.

    Avocados are such wonderful things!

  6. The only time I've ever made an avocado sweet was when I made chocomole, a raw chocolate pudding, which was incredible. I'll have to try your suggestion, sounds yum!

  9. I used to work with a french lady called Clara and she always ate her avocados sweet too! I can imagine the slightly bland creaminess being perfect paired with sugar and other sweet ingredients.
