There is a right and a wrong way to peel an avocado. Have you ever mashed it and basically broke the avocado?? Well, below is the proper technique on how to peel it so it comes out perfect!
You want to peel the avocado with your hands, as you would a banana:
- First, cut the avocado length-wise, around the seed
- Holding each half, twist them in the opposite directions to separate them from the seed
- Remove the seed
- Cut each half, lengthwise
- Next, using your thumb and index finger, simply peel the skin off each piece
Also- did you know avocados provide
- Potassium (more than twice the amount found in a banana)
- Vitamin E
- Folic acid
- Good fats
- helps with hair, nails and skin
My #1 favorite thing to use an avocado for is when I bake. You can actually use it as a fat replacement in baking. All you need to do is replace the fat called for (such as oil, butter or shortening,yogurt) with an equal amount of avocado. Your baking items will still taste rich and yummy, but they willl be filled with good fast as opposed to bad fat!
