Review: Avocados from Mexico

About: Avocados from Mexico

The World's First and Finest

The world's first avocado was grown and cultivated in Mexico countless generations ago. And thanks to the region's fertile volcanic soil, ideal climate and centuries of expert cultivation, Mexico remains the source of the world's finest avocados. Today, Mexico is the only place in the world where avocado trees naturally bloom four times a year. Producing a year-round bounty of irresistibly rich and creamy avocados whose unsurpassed quality and distinctly delicious flavor are always in season.

Making Good Food Better.
Given their authentic flavor and rich, creamy texture, it's easy to see how Avocados from Mexico consistently make such a distinctly delicious difference

As summer ends and everyone falls back into a busy routine, it’s the perfect time to focus on getting a good start every day with a powerful breakfast. Recent studies show that kids who eat breakfast perform at a grade level higher than those who don’t (Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine), and those who eat a balanced breakfast score better on standardized tests and behave better in class.** And a breakfast with a little protein helps prevent obesity in kids and adults alike by helping them feel fuller all day. Enter avocados!

Avocados for breakfast? Yes. Avocados, the nutrient-dense fruit, are great for the whole family as a quick, filling, energy boosting addition to breakfast.

Kid-approved and healthy, avocados are packed with nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, including B-complex vitamins that support memory – perfect for learning those times tables and state capitals! Avocados also have fiber, which not only keeps things running smoothly but also satisfies hunger longer for less desk-time tummy growling.

Think you don’t have time to add avocados to breakfast? Here are some easy ideas:

· Mash a ripe Mexican avocado and smear it on toast, for a healthy alternative to butter and other spreads.
· Blend one avocado with 2 cups frozen berries and juice for a dairy free smoothie.
· Or, simply slice an avocado on top of warm grits or black beans and serve along side eggs.

Make sure you check out Avocados from Mexico's website for tons of awesome recipe ideas!! These Avocados are so good! They taste so fresh and add flavor to any food. I love making guacamole and I am now starting to use the avocados on sandwiches! Also, check them out on facebook and twitter!

Thanks for the ideas. I'm not an avocado fan but my son is, and I never think of other ways to use them except for guac.

I love Avocados, although I grew up calling them "aguacate". I love them in a salad.

I have never tried avocados but after hearing the nutrients and benefits they hold I think I will. I'm very interested in try the smoothie for the kids I babysit for! Thanks for the great ideas and information!

Wow...I never would have thought of simply mashing up an avocado and spreading it on toast or bread! Never really thought about using it for anything other than guacamole, really, which is a shame because they really are yummy. Thanks for inspiring me to try something new!

(Adding 'avocados' to shopping list...!) :)

Well, since it seems like I can never find American avocados in the grocery stores, I guess Mexican avocados are just fine.
