I don't know about you, but I've got avocados on my mind. In case you missed this avocado mango salsa, you should definitely try it. Or does this avocado mayonnaise sound more like your style? Avocados as dessert? You betcha. If you love avocados like I do, this recipe is just for you.
I learned something new about avocados the other day. According to this list of avocado facts, avocados mature on the tree but ripen off the tree. So in nature, they fall off the tree and ripen on the ground. Some fruits don't ripen after you pick them, but avocados only ripen after you pick them. It's like God intended for us in the non-tropics to be able to experience the joy of avocados.

Which to use: food processor or immersion blender?
A food processor or immersion blender is definitely needed for this recipe. I prefer a food processor for this one because I can just turn it on and walk away instead of standing there holding the button on the immersion blender. I don't know about you, but sometimes my hand cramps when I have to hold the immersion blender button down for a while. Maybe I just have weak fingers.
The food processor will give it a nice creamy texture. And if you don't have a food processor...no time like the present! Check out the one I recommend on my recommended tools page.
