In a tropical climate avocados grow all around the world. This fruit has a distinct, but subtle flavour and creamy texture. Like a banana its flesh turns brown quickly when exposed to air. Although high in fat and calories, most of the fat comes from the healthy mono-unsaturated fat that can help to lower cholesterol level. They are also a good source of vitamins C and K, so can make a nutritious addition to your diet. However if you are watching your weight you might want to keep the portions small.
