That’s it. I’ve decided. Avocados are my favorite fruit.
Not only are they decidedly not bananas but they have more potassium than a banana (1166 mg in the average raw avocado compared to 806 mg in a banana) and they are the key ingredient in one of the best things on earth: guacamole.
Guacamole is like the pumpkin pie of the spring and summer months. It has a distinct taste, has a gorgeous color and I could eat it all day long.
The best part about guacamole is that everyone makes it a little differently, so there is always a new avocado infused adventure in every bite.
Personally, I like to add a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lime. But, I also find it mighty hard to share at all when I make it so I doubt you will ever taste my recipe.
I love avocado but I hate bananas.
Awful flavor aside, they are selfish fruits that overpower every other flavor they are next to. Strawberry banana smoothie? Try banana smoothie with a slightly pink coloring. Fruit salad containing banana? More like a bowl of bananas coming in all different shapes, sizes and colors. And don’t even get me started on the texture and smell.
So how happy am I to get my potassium elsewhere?
Almost as happy as if I was given the power to create chocolate out of thin air.
