Avocados are one of the healthiest fruits on the planet, so you have a good reason to eat plenty of them. To some people avocados might seem exotic but there are so many great avocado recipes online. You just have to know how to prepare them! That is actually very easy, as the following short video shows.

  1. Use a sharp knife to cut lengthwise around the pit.
  2. Twist the avocado to separate the two halves.
  3. Hit the pit with the sharp knife to remove it with a pull.
  4. Use a butter knife (don't use a pointy sharp knife as this might cut the skin and hurt you) to cut each avocado half into slices or cubes.
  5. Scoop the flesh out with a spoon or squeeze it out into a bowl to mash.
