To me, avocado is a fruit. It always was and always will be.
Back home, we slice it open, remove the pit, scoop out the buttery flesh, lightly mash it, drizzle a generous amount of condesed milk, add ice cubes and place in the freezer to cool. It one of the simplest yet most indulgent desserts one could ever have. Sometimes we even whizz it in the blender with milk, sugar and ice to make it a shake.
Even in Dubai, the avocado shake is one of the most popular fare at the juice bars.
Avocadoes have never ventured to the vegetal, savory side of the food spectrum…until Texas happened.
