Avocado has its origins in the subtropical part of Central America, where the fruit has been grown for over 7,000 years. Nowadays the fruit is also grown in South Africa, Kenya, Israel, Chile and Peru and available all year round. The flesh is greenish to light yellow and has a creamy structure. The kernel in the middle of the fruit is not edible and is easy to remove. Avocado has a fairly neutral, soft, nutty taste. Avocado can be used in smoothie, soup and sauce. And it is the basic ingredient of guacamole! Avocado is also delicious on bread or toast. You can also fill in halved and slightly hollowed avocado with shrimp or chicken salad. Or eat avocado as an appetizer, sprinkled with some lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Mango has its origin in Asia, to be precise from the southern slopes of the Himalayas. But nowadays mangoes are also grown in Asia, in parts of East and West Africa, in South Africa and (sub) tropics of America. Mangoes have a fresh, sweet, full flavor with a spicy, exotic refinement. They are also very tasty in fruit salads or in sorbets and ice cream. In addition, a mango is also delicious with smoked meat, parma ham and smoked chicken or as a refreshing side dish with spicy dishes and curry dishes. But try mango also on bread with chicken breast or in a salad with iceberg lettuce and shrimps. Peel the mango before use and cut the flesh along the large pit. You might slice the flesh of the mango into cubes.
