Irvine, CA (July 2008)—While most often partnered with savory ingredients, Fresh Hand Grown in California Avocados have a delectably sweet side, too. A favored fruit for beverages and desserts in tropical climates, the silky texture and mild, nutty flavor of Fresh California Avocados blends smoothly with citrus, coconut and mango in shakes, smoothies, ice creams and custards; or mixes in colorful fruit salads with papaya, melon and berries. Closer to home, Tropical Cream Pie offers an easy and exotic solution for adding tropical flair to the dessert menu: simply spoon creamy avocado mousse into chocolate or graham cracker shells.
