I just received a beautiful shipment of fuerte avocados from CaliforniaAvocadosDirect.com
I’ve posted previously about CaliforniaAvocadosDirect.com and mentioned that it’s a family farm and how each avocado is inspected, hand-selected, and hand-picked before it’s shipped to consumers.

Here are some of my favorite recipes using avocados:
Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa-Stuffed Puff Pastries (with a vegan option)
What’s not to love about squishy warm avocado, with melted cream cheese, flavored with two kinds of salsa to give the bites just a touch of sweet from the mango salsa and a kick from the green salsa verde.
Vanilla Avocado Banana Ice Cream (Raw, Vegan, GF)
You cannot “taste” the avocado. Trust me on this one; it’s really rich, creamy, sweet, and very ice cream-like.
People write to me frequently telling me how much they love this healthier recipe for ice cream. And that their unsuspecting husbands and kids do, too.
3 minute recipe. No veggie, onion, or garlic chopping required.
Sweet, creamy, pudding-like. Or thin it out a bit more and drink it with a straw like a smoothie.
Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse (Raw, Vegan, Gluten Free)
This recipe takes 2 minutes to make and when I bring it to a party, no one ever guesses what the secret ingredient is, and it’s instantly devoured by all. People tell me they prefer it to traditional chocolate mousse made with boiling cream and sugar.
