We are obsessed with avocados. We put them on sandwiches, salads, tortilla chips, burritos, wraps, toast, make guacamole, eat them by the spoonful plain and I personally like them in a fruit smoothie.
We have been stocking up from Vitamin Cottage (our favorite store!) where they are 79 cents for organic avocados! Loving that. They were SIX DOLLARS each in Saudi Arabia-definitely not worth the money because they were hard and bruised. In Uganda (see picture above) they were the size of two softballs and about 10 cents each. That was the best deal we've ever found!
For now enjoy Ryan's Guac Recipe when you are dreaming of warmer summer days...
Mash 1-2 organic avocados in a small bowl
Squeeze some fresh lemon juice into the mix
Mix in about 1-2 heaping spoonfuls of plain organic yogurt
Season with salt and pepper to taste
And if we are feeling it, we chop fresh garlic and tomatoes to throw in there too
