While the Sharwil, Reed and Shepard varieties of Avocado have been filling the void during the off-season, the ever-popular Hass Avocado variety is now back available. This green-come-black variety is the most common, and probably most familiar variety going around.
Super creamy, smoothly textured and slightly sweet, Hass Avocados are wonderfully versatile. Smashed on toast, mashed into Guacamole, or sliced fresh into a salad. One usage you may not have considered though is using Avocados to replace fats in baking or in non-dairy mousses or ice-creams. Their high fat-content makes them perfect for this, but being full of “good fats” instead of bad ones, they are also a wonderfully healthy alternative.
