Avocado - Nuts Desert

Avokado Nuts desert is a mild sweet desert, you can say its like an ice cream, soft, smooth and healthy desert which help us to gain many healthy benefits.
I have used Avocado, little honey and loads of Almonds and cashews. 

I remember Usha Bopayya who used to treat us with Avocado along with yummy breakfast whenever we stayed with her in Mysore. (Avocados are from her own Estate). It was the first time I had tasted this yummy fruit in Usha |Bopayya's house. She is such a nice kind lovable human being and she treats us like her own kids. 
These particular Avocado is brought from Usha Suresh Cukkemane. Suresh and Usha are our family friends and we are like family members. (All friends circle from Dubai). I was very curious to prepare this desert. I have added dates and figs, honey and cashews, brought from Goa by Yadu Rajiv ( RishiKanth Somayaji's friend), Almond flakes  are from Krishnaveni Beedarhalli. (Vidya's sister).
Let us see some benefits of Avocado.
Avocado is filled with nutrients, minerals and vitamins. Avocado helps us to have healthy eyes, protect our skin. It is good for maintaining blood sugar levels. It has a good source of antioxidant properties. It helps in blood circulation and to build stronger bones. It helps in easy digestion and prevents the bad breath. It also helps in K vitamin deficiency related bleeding disorder. It takes care of our heart health and liver care. Avocado has a high fatty acid content but it is very low in cholesterol. They are rich in vitamins and minerals. They are good source of monounsaturated fatty acids. They are low in sugar content. Avocado is rich source of energy. They contain minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese, phosphorus and zinc. The minerals in avocado are Vitamin C, B6, B 12, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin K and Vitamin E. They are good source of dietary fiber. Avocado is rich in potassium and it balances the potassium and sodium level in our body, which is very important for overall health.
You can use Avocado to prepare dips or for sandwiches, milk shake, smoothie and other dishes.

Note : 

Do not add any water for this desert. I have used honey for the sweetness. Instead of honey you can use sugar/jaggery /Palm jaggery or even jaggery. You can powder cashews and almonds in a mixi and then used it. Roasting of almonds and blag grapes.
Using Avocado instead of butter is a healthy option.
Time : 10 Minutes
