Every time we visit them we always get some fresh avocados off their tree. These avocados are huge, about 1 1/2 times the size of the Haas. They are creamy and just so delicious. I can eat one or two every day and not get tired of them. If they are picked from the tree chances are they are not ripe yet. I usually put them in a bag in place for 3-4 days to speed up the ripening process. I would highly recommend checking on them daily or every 2 days for readiness to eat. If you forget they will rot and become moldy quickly, especially in the tropical heat and humidity.
Here is a dessert using just 3 ingredients. Recently I roasted some peanuts and they are still fresh and crunchy. Use another kind of nut such as macadamia nuts if you prefer. A drizzle of agave nectar adds a nice sweetness that satisfies my taste buds. Add as much or as little of the peanuts and agave nectar as you wish. If you do not have agave nectar try adding honey or just raw sugar. This is a quick, tasty and healthy breakfast or snack.
Avocado with Roasted Peanuts and Agave Nectar (serves 2)
Meat from 2 ripe large avocados
A few drizzles of agave nectar
About 1 1/2 Tbsp crushed Roasted Peanuts
Remove the meat from avocados, drizzle the agave nectar on top and sprinkle peanuts over everything.
