Avocado is the favourite fruit of all healthy-eaters. After all it is high in protein, contains 20 different minerals and vitamins and also is loaded with good good fats. The creamy texture of this ingredient, perfectly contrasted with other flavours like lime and sugar has won our hearts from the very beginning.
