Avocado really is a super food. Not just because of all of the nutritional benefits, but because there is so much you can do with it. No longer confined to Mexican food, you can put it in an omelette, turn it in to ice cream, make a chocolate dessert with it, add it to chilli or turn it in to a soup.

How to pick the perfect avocado
The key is to pick a ripe but not over-ripe avocados. We like Hass avocados. Try to look for avocados that give a bit to a gentle squeeze. But you don't want one that it too soft, as it will be over ripe.
Don't worry if when you cut in to it there are some bruised or brown bits, as you can scoop those out and discard before smashing the rest up.
To store unused halves of avocado, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and place in fridge - it will be good until the next day. Don't worry if it goes a little brown, as you can just scrape that bit off and you will be left with bright green avocado.

Avocados are the best! I love to pile them on burgers on sandwiches for that creamy texture. These are fantastic ideas, too!
Avocados on burgers are the best. I am craving a burger now.
I have never tried avocado in dessert before, but it has more of a texture than a flavour, so I can imagine it is good. I am looking forward to trying that one.
It makes it really creamy.
I love your kale guacamole, but those brownies sound amazing. I bet the avocado makes them really creamy.
