Chocolate avocado mousse with blackberries and pistachios

How do you like your eggs in the morning?

Housed in half an avocado of course. Eggs baked in things is a thing itself, people, and this ingenious recipe has bacon in it too. Yum. Scoop out some of the inside of your avocado halves so they hold a whole egg, spread onto some toast and you’ll have yourself a rather heavenly brunch.

No, we haven't lost the avocado plot – its powers really do extend to drinks too. Take your lead from Cook in Canuck and say hello to the avocado margarita. Mix avocado, crushed ice, agave nectar, tequila, triple sec and coriander springs. The blender will be your friend here.

This is how to make avocado taste like chocolate

Thanks to food trend setters, we're now allowed to put our two favourite things together: avocado-lovers rejoice, chocolate-lovers rejoice even more.

Sprinkle some crushed nuts and berries over your chocolate avocado mousse and you’ve got yourself a rather special pud.  

PS: no-one will be able to tell there’s avocado in there (unless some sneaky person tells on you).
