Also purée half an avocado with half a banana and some organic cacao powder for a quick tasty pudding!

I make chocolate pudding with avocados as well. Just seeing this thread made me run off to make some.

I use:

2 avocados, very ripe
1/2 cup splenda (probably need more if you use regular sugar)
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 t balsamic vinegar
2 t vanilla
1/2 t soy sauce
milk or water to consistency

I add water or milk until its smooth and blends well, probably around half a cup.

It's very rich so although it's high in calories, you don't need to each much to be satisfied.

You can also use avocados to top soups and chili. I love it on tortilla soup.

Ooooh, that's a great idea. I am definitely trying banana next time.

I know this most probably sound gross but I used to love avocado and banana mashed on toast. It would give me an instant energy boost when I was working nightshift.

Try my guacamole recipe! (I copied and pasted from Cathe's healthy recipe site where I posted it in September) I LOVE this stuff! It is very versatile and forgiving, so modify it however you like-it will still be fabulous!

I made a creamy avocado past dish last night that was wonderful (link below to recipe). I added some parmesean cheese to the sauce and a diced tomato at the end. Delish!

My mother would mash the avocado up with a fork, a little sugar and some lemon juice. It was great on crackers or spread on a turkey, cream cheese sandwich.

Avocados are a great healthy source for your body, as they carry monounsaturated fat that might lower your cholesterol level. A considerable idea that I like to do is replace butter with avocado on a sandwich.
