Avocado Pesto

We have an abundance of Avocados here, especially at my Aunts, so it’s great to make something different with them.  Southern Spain has many avocado plantations; I believe (after a little google) Almuñécar had the first commercial Avocado plantation back in 1955!!

They are full of vitamins and nutrients, such as potassium, protein and vitamins; B K C and E. They are good for your body inside and out, I mashed one up and popped on my hair the other day, it does it wonders!  They are definitely one of my favourite fruits; and are technically a single seeded berry!!

This recipe is quick, easy and healthy and also lets the avocados last that little bit longer; if you seal them in an airtight container.
