Avocado is one fruit that can be used or included in almost any dish. It gives the dish a whole new dimension, making it rich, smooth and silky. The fruit takes on the flavour of the dish and adds texture. Avocado can be used to make some delightful desserts. To start off, you must be sure the avocado that you are using is ripe or unripe. It’s super easy to find that out. If the avocado yields to gentle pressure of the hand, it’s ripe enough and is ready to eat. If it doesn’t then, it can stay for a couple of days to ripen. Now that we’ve learnt to test the fruit, let’s make some avomazing desserts!
