I know some people stay away from avocados because of the fruit's high fat content as about 85% an avocado's calories are from fat. It's important to remember that the fat found in an avocado is mostly the good kind called monounsaturated fat (same as found in olive oil).
Did you know?
- One avocado has 1/2 the recommended daily fibre for a woman?
- Many believe avocados have anti-inflammation properties.
- The are also known as "alligator pears" due to the appearance of their skin and shape.
- 1/2 of an avocado provides 25% of the daily recommended amount of folate we need.
The deep chocolate flavour is thanks to the cocoa. If your strawberries are quite sweet you won't need the honey but the ones I have are rather tart so a little extra sweetness is needed.
