Avocado Frozen Dessert on #marketfriday

Avocados were not readily available in the markets of the small towns where I spent the earlier years of my life. When they finally became available, they were expensive because they had to be shipped by truck from far away. So, I became an adult and had moved to another location before I tasted my first avocado, but I was immediately hooked on them! The creamy consistency of the fruit is wonderful and the subtle taste is fabulous! I enjoy them raw with crunchy flatbread, diced in a salad, or blended into a guacamole dip.

I was shocked to see a frozen dessert in the freezer case of my local market recently and the name "Cado" made me do a double-take. What...? A frozen avocado dessert...? 😳 As it turns out, there is only avocado oil in it, not bits of the fruit, itself, although that would have been good, too!

There are several types of "fat" that can be in foods. Some of them are not good for the human body, such as Saturated Fat and Trans Fats. However, there are two types of unsaturated Fats — monounsaturated and polyunsaturated — which are beneficial to the human body. These fats are present in fatty fishes such as salmon, in some nuts, olive oil, and in avocados!【source: this site & a gazillion other websites & books-in-print】

The term "frozen dessert" encompasses many different styles of treats. This particular one isn't like an ice cream, but has a consistency more like a sorbet. Since only the oil of the avocado is used, there is no taste of avocado present, just a taste similar to a conventional sorbet or gelato. Of course, since this is a rather specialized product made from all natural ingredients, it is pricier than some other items in the same section of the freezer case. But, the healthier ingredients will make it worthwhile to some people, just as organic, non-GMO, vegan, kosher, and other similar items have their following.

The complete list of ingredients can be seen in the photo below, along with the nutrition information. It is comforting to see natural ingredients in the list instead of chemical names that can't be pronounced by the average person. I must admit to being mystified, however, by the mention of things such as "Cassava Root Syrup" of which I've never heard previously. I'm also wondering about the listing of pea starch, pea protein, and pea fiber — why not just say "peas" were used? I mean, after one extracts the starch, protein, and fiber from a pea, what is left...? 😂


This purchase was simply to satisfy my curiosity about it. It was tasty and satisfied the tummy! I would certainly consider purchasing it again, especially if it were on sale, although it will not be a regular purchase. Have you ever tried a similar product? What were your impressions?

Never seen a mix like that, sorbet yes in berries normally very tasty but never using avocado or the oils.

We live with fresh avocado available, ironically I am the only one in the family that will eat them periodically.

Sounds like a most unusual mix, as long as it was enjoyable and refreshing in this form one would be tempted to try if ever seen over here.

I have never seen anything like this before and now, I am curious, so I will have to see if I can find it anywhere. I love avocados, and they are readily available here. I eat at least 2 a week, sometimes 3. That rich, creamy taste goes so well with a turkey sandwich, with mashed egg, avocado slices, and a tiny bit of mayo... lettuce. Open wide! It is a big one! So delicious!

Avocado and egg grilled cheese sandwich! Gouda, with its nutty flavor, is perfect with the avocado and boiled egg! Like a little kick? Add some spicy sriracha. Grill and enjoy! Yummy!

Okay, so we have established I love avocados! I am looking on the internet to see where they carry this. I see it at many stores here, even though I have never noticed it. I am so behind the times! It is $4.99 at Target and most places here. I am not sure if that is higher or lower, but, of course, I think it is pricey. I am a cheap date, @TheKittyGirl! However, for the sake of science or nutrition or for the heck of it, I am willing to break open the piggy bank for it.

Thank you so much for your curiosity!

This has been a really fun post and you are right about the peas. It sounds more nutritious if they list it three different times, right? :) I love the concept of #MarketFriday and how our cultures differ and then again, how much they are alike. Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, even your language/languages. Along with the fact of what is normal for where you live? These are unwritten rules that rule our social behaviors. I see this as allowing for increased tolerance between cultures and nations, and opportunities to come together on an even playing ground. A strong culture can be beneficial to a country as it promotes unity, especially during a crisis, peaceful debate, and open dialogue. I had hoped that posting here will familiarize you with the world around you just a little bit more. Viewing it from a more personal level as opposed to the newsworthy level gives me a better understanding of the people and a view that is often not seen on television. Sometimes,it seems like I learn more on some social medias about a certain incident than what the news tells me.

I appreciate the amazing support given to #MarketFriday! Thank you! Your participation adds a piece of your world, and I have to say, people are interested in seeing it. This entire challenge has opened up the world to me and so many others. Thank you again for being a part of all this! I am so happy to see you here! I hope you have a fabulous day! Hive on!!

You mentioned turkey sandwich with avocado slices... I made a big bowl of homemade guacamole years ago when my husband was still alive (it was one of our favorite things) and we enjoyed some of it with tortilla chips. I put the leftover guacamole in the fridge. Hours later, I decided to make a turkey sandwich. When I reached into the fridge to get the turkey and mustard, I spied that bowl of guacamole and decided to put that on the bread instead of mustard. It was so good, that it became my standard condiment on turkey sandwiches from then on! I always put minced onion, diced tomatoes, and garlic in my guacamole. The combo with the turkey was divine! Now I am anxious to try your suggestions, too! Thank you! 😋

The other thing that goes amazingly with the avocado spread and turkey is bacon. I don't know if you eat it but every once in a blue moon I make one of those and they are delicious!

When I make my guacamole to use tomatoes diced up, diced onions, chop cilantro chewy and a splash of lime because it helps balance the richness of the avocados.

If you want to be a quick guacamole just take a quarter cup of salsa and mix it in. Works in pinch. If you don't have enough avocado people put sour cream or cottage cheese in. If you are a purist you won't do it see, actually tastes pretty good!
