To make this dish, halve the avocado, and roast them in the oven until they are tender and light brown. Roasting them in the oven will enhance their natural sweetness by removing extra moisture and creating a creamy and flavorful dish.
The reason why I love Roasted avocados is that they offer a bundle of flavor without adding a lot of extra calories or fat.

The thing worth mentioning is that the avocados don’t give a noticeable flavor to these brownies, however, they will give moisture and richness with no added fat.
Bali Avocado Shake
Also known as Jus Alpukat, the Bali Avocado Shake is a traditional Indonesian beverage, and thick enough to be called a shake.
Just like Avocado Coconut-Lime Ice Cream, you’ll love its creamy texture coming out of the silky avocados, and milk, light sweetness from the condensed milk, and a strong aroma of brewed coffee.
I recommend adding a double espresso shot and a pinch of sea salt to improve its flavor and aroma. Besides, you can also drizzle chocolate syrup that’ll leave you with a heaven of flavor.
The shake is best to be served as a breakfast beverage, or an after-dinner dessert.
If you plan to make this shake, I recommend using the best milkshake machine and adjusting the ratios of milk, condensed milk, and Ice to your preference. This will not just improve thickness but also the flavor and aroma as per your liking.
Aji de Aguacate (Colombian style guacamole)
Here is a traditional Colombian spicy avocado dip that can be served perfectly with plantain chips, patacones, and baked chicken.
Major ingredients included in this dipping sauce are hard-boiled egg, habanero pepper, salt, lime juice, onion, cilantro, scallions, and white vinegar.
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or vegetable chopper until the mixture is well combined. Avoid making it too thick. For this purpose, I recommend adding lime juice to achieve the desired consistency.

I am a huge fan of this Avocado pudding that is not just easy to make but also highly nutritious and full of flavors.
The key ingredients are Florida avocado, honey or maple syrup (as a sweetener), milk, and cocoa powder. Since the recipe is fully customizable, I recommend adding vanilla extract and a pinch of salt for added flavor.
A tip to make this recipe is adjusting the amount of sweetener and adding a small amount of coconut milk that’ll make your pudding more fluffy and aromatic. Serve this pudding immediately after making it to prevent browning.
Creamy Avocado Dip
This is my favorite dip that can be served with vegetables, potato chips, and crackers. The options are endless, and you can also use it as a topping for tacos, burgers, and sandwiches.
The basic difference between a regular dip and creamy avocado dip is the addition of mayonnaise and Greek yogurt to add a creamy texture. You can also include sour cream, fresh lime juice, jalapeno, and cilantro to improve its flavor.
Crab Salad Stuffed Avocados
Here is another seafood and vegan recipe that combines the Florida avocado and Crab salad. Since this is a light meal, you can serve it with summer potluck meals before lunch or dinner as an appetizer.
The ingredients include crab meat, avocado, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, onion, celery, and chives. To make this appetizer, stuff the crab meat into halved avocados and serve chilled.
For an enhanced flavor, I recommend using lump crab meat instead of flaked crab meat, and adding a dash of cayenne pepper while cooking crab meat, because it will improve the overall taste of your meal.
If you plan to make this recipe ahead of time, assemble the crab salad stuffed avocados, and store them in the refrigerator. However, it is not recommended to store them for more than two days as the recipe will lose its taste and creamy texture.
