Do you eat your avocado with sugar?

People do this any other way?!

Try one in a smoothie.
My dad was bored one day and put one in a smoothie as a joke.
No joke, it adds quite a bit of rich texture to the smoothie, and if you have a banana ( best frozen ) the taste and texture becomes like ice cream.
All without any added sugar.
I came across some extra large avocados ' tropical avocados' that have a sweet flavor ( but not like fruit - i use them on salty sandwiches )
The best thing about the tropical avocados, is that they are the size of my outstretched hand and sell for $2, while Hass avocados sell for $1.75 and are the size of a lemon .
( With 3 out of 5 being rotten or all seed )

Never tried one with sugar. I just might do that next time I have one.

Do you eat ice cream with milk?
Do you put an ice cube in your milk as a beverage?
Do you pour raw egg on your rice?
Do you drink your Scotch neat, at room temperature?

I bought an enormous avocado once and it was very watery and lacked flavor. Not sure if that's normal for the species, or if I just got a dud. Mostly I hate avocado prices because paying a dollar anything for them is outrageous.

Go to South America and you can probably buy a burlap bag full of avocados for $4.

I don't recall the last time I ate any, but I know I have.

In the 1970s I worked alongside a carpenter from California. At lunch he would cut an avacado in half and eat it with a spoon.

I haven't seen any large avocados, but Mom bought me an enormous mango, which I ate for lunch today.

I kind of wanted some protein. Oh well!

One can make an ice cream facsimile just by blending frozen bananas and cocoa powder.

Where would one actually buy such a tropical avocado? I have never seen one or if I have it escaped my attention. I know the local hispanic store I frequent imports them, but they aren't large, just normal sized.

Yes I put milk in a glass with ice cream then mix them into literally a milkshake; makes a better ice headache
Whole milk and icecubes ends up tasting like colder skim milk
The flavor of eggs makes me puke. If I cant taste them then all is well.
I like a lot of adult beverages at room temp: scotts whiskey, irish whiskey, bourbon, brandy, Schnapps, porters and stouts.

Many SOCAL people had avacado trees on or near their domicile and upped their consumption as a result. I can't see why anyone eats something with the taste and texture of an artist's pastel stick but my wife's family love them.

When I was a toddler in Manaus, there was an enormous mango tree in the backyard of the house I lived. During the season a lot of mangoes would fall, then my father collected them and simply gave them away to a Japanese lady who owned a mini market. Didn't even charge the lady for the mangoes, as he just needed them gone instead of leaving them to rot away in the backyard. Back in the day, a dedicated-ethanol Ford Corcel was the only car at home, so maybe it could've been worth attempting to homebrew ethanol with some of those mangoes...

Banana is not my favorite fruit. The way I eat it more often is unripe, sliced and deep-fried like potato chips. That was quite common in Amazon when I was a kid, and only recently it became more common nationwide as a "fit" alternative to potato chips...

Great Story, Senhor Galo, but do you or do you not eat your avocados with sugar?!

I'm not wealthy enough to just eat avocados as a snack, so adding anything to it never crossed my mind.

I cut them up as a topping on less expensive food.

I don't even remember what is the taste of an avocado, but in Brazil it's usual not only to add sugar to it, some people always pour lime juice over a half of an avocado before eating it.
