Its only after i began blogging that i knew an avocado can be used for many more things other than a milkshake. My first tryst with this nutrient loaded goodness was in the form of some guacomole. And then there was no looking back. Until i decided the other day to use it in a dip. And should i even mention how the dip bowl was licked clean!
