One thing that I find really strange is when someone says the words “I don’t like avocado”, I always seem to have a shocked look on my face, but inside my mind palace I seem to have a bit of a freak out that starts with “whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! How can you not like avocado is it the delicious taste, the amazing creaminess or the wonderful amount of health benefits?!”, after a while I do realize everyone is entitled to their own opinion and maybe it is for the best, because it leaves me with more avocado.
This is a twist on traditional guacamole. Its a refreshing and creamy goodness that is amazing for any thing you can top guacamole on. Instead of the traditional lime juice, I added grapefruit juice for a fresh and interesting twist. Also realize the spices and cilantro overdose is all based on my own taste feel free to alter the recipe and taste as you go.
