People eat the fruit for its yummy flavor or for its nutritional food benefits. I eat avocado for both reasons. :)
Simple Snack RecipeI usually eat avocado together with sugar. Honey is a good substitute for sugar to make it more healthful. Now, to make it creamy and more delicious just add two tablespoons of powdered milk for each regular-sized avocado.
For convenience some people just use canned condensada milk. But still I find powdered milk since it is more available in my house.
There is no sure thing that the avocado you buy is free from damages or from caterpillars inside. You may say, "Eew!" but this is the reality in the world of avocado buyers/lovers.
How I find the best avocado
It's really disappointing when you buy avocado and find out that you cannot even eat a thing from it because of the damage it got from outside forces or because of caterpillars lurking inside the fruit that make holes in its flesh.
Buying unripe avocados. Those are the best ones, I'd say.
Any caterpillars in unripe avocados are not yet fully grown.
It is also near impossible for them to eat the hard flesh of the fruit.
Then ripen the avocados in the refrigerator to kill any caterpillar in it.
You'd guess caterpillars cannot live with the cold environment there.
Thus, preventing them from making more holes to your precious fruit.
When the fruit is ripe and is ready for scooping, you'll observe that you are to eat the maximum fruit flesh you can get from the avocado you've been waiting for.
Also, no additional chilling is needed.
