Where the pit comes out, and there’s no doubt

That the fleshy mash will take you faaaaar.

And when we saaaaaay, Yum! Yes give it to me, yaaaaaaay!

We’re only saying, You’re tasting fine, guacamole!

Guacamole, G.U.A.C.A.M.O.L.E. Gaucamoooooole, YUM!

So incredibly sorry to put you guys through that.

But guess what!

My awesome friend Gaby just released a spickidy spankidy brand new cookbook COMPLETELY dedicated to avocados.

Like, totally and entirely all about avocados.

As in, nothing but avocados.

Is this not the most terrific news ever? Just look at this!

Screen shot 2013-04-30 at 1.48.04 PM

I have looked through every single page of this book approximately 17,634 times and my mouth wants to ride off with it on horseback into the sunset, forever. Just my mouth though. The rest of my body has some things it needs to get done here at home.

Yeah, that image ruined my life too.

Anyway, I HAVE IMPORTANT NEWS. I have a copy of this avocado-licious cookbook, and I’m absolutely dying for you to have one too. Alls yer gotsta do is answer a super crazy important question for me. So easy.

But first! Here are the easy clickidy places you can get them online:

Amazonhttp://www.amazon.com/Absolutely-Avocados-Gaby-Dalkin/dp/1118412117

Barnes and Noblehttp://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/absolutely-avocados-g-dalkin/1113759689?ean=9781118412114

Aaaaand while you’re at it, you just have to watch her cookbook trailer. Why do I just want to cuddle her? Gaby, I want to cuddle you. Wait, please don’t call the cops.

I made her Cajun Shrimp Guacamole yesterday, and I’m telling you, my entire body is still absolutely numb.

Here’s the question!

What other weird ways have you used avocados? Are they good for your hair? Your skin? Could they take the place of shaving cream?

Of course for more entries you can follow me here, here, here and here, and just leave a separate comment on this post letting me know! The winner will be announced Monday morning, May 6th, and is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only. Thank ya!

Cajun Shrimp Guacamole:

(from Absolutely Avocados)

What it took for 1 person. Just kidding! 1 stingy person:

(fine, 4):

* 4 Tbs. butter
* 1 Tbs. Cajun seasoning
* 1 pound medium (or extra-large!) shrimp, peeled and deveined
* 3 Hass avocados
* 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
* 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions
* 1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
* zest of 1 lemon
* 1 Tbs (or more to your liking) fresh lemon juice
* coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Melt half the butter in a large sauté pan over medium-high. Add 1/2 Tbs. of the Cajun seasoning to the butter. Stir it all in. Let it bloom and fall in love. Add half the shrimp and sear on one side for 2 minutes. Flip and sear another minute or so. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside.

Add the remaining butter and Cajun seasoning. Bloom for a second, then add the remaining shrimp. Sear her up, you know the drill. Set shrimp aside.

Half each avocado and remove the pit. Scoop out the flesh into a big bowl. Add the red bells, scallion, onions, lemon zest and juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mash it all together with your fork, until it’s smooth, but still good and chunky. Taste it. BIGGIDY.

Add salt and pepper and more lemon juice to your liking.

Serve with the Cajun shrimp!

After all, it’s called avocado, not avocadon’t.

    I’m swooning, but really. That cookbook might be the best cookbook in the whole world. I’ve used avocado on my face, I’ll say it. But I would much rather just eat it…

  2. Averie @ Averie Cooks May 1, 2013 at 8:05 am #

    What other weird ways have you used avocados? = raw vegan chocolate mousse, in avocado-banana ice cream, in chocolate frosting, I have done quite a few weirder things :)

  3. Tieghan May 1, 2013 at 8:12 am #

    Girl!! This blows my mind!! Love your photos!!
    Gaby’s books looks killer!

  4. Kel May 1, 2013 at 8:13 am #

    Lovely pics! I made a chocolate avocado cake once to see if my husband would eat it!

  5. Katy N K May 1, 2013 at 8:17 am #

    Sadly I haven’t ventured out into using avocados outside of the food world. But, I do love them! Will have to come up with some creative ways…. just have to resist eating them first!

  6. Katy N K May 1, 2013 at 8:19 am #

    BTW – I follow you everywhere… Does that sound as creepy stalker-like to you as I think??? I should come up with better wording!

  7. Kelly G. May 1, 2013 at 8:23 am #

    Just go ahead and smear it all over my face. Like a facial, but for your face AND your mouth. Double-y delicious!!!!!

  8. Kathryn Louise May 1, 2013 at 8:24 am #

    I use them in my hair

  9. Paula - bell'alimento May 1, 2013 at 8:26 am #

    Holy shrimp guacamole! Can I tell you how much I LURVE this book. I made the avocado pasta and it was faboosh will be making my way through the entire book – this HAS to be next.

  10. April @BarbellsandBellinis May 1, 2013 at 8:27 am #

    Hot damn this looks amazing!! I have used avocados as a hair mask. They make your hair super shiny and silky.

  11. Iby May 1, 2013 at 8:31 am #

    This looks amazinggggggg!

    I am absolutely obsessed with avocado, but I’ve never used (wasted??) an avocado anywhere but my mouth. As in, inside my mouth. Yum!

  12. Ann Marie @ whitehouseblackshutters May 1, 2013 at 8:32 am #

    I’ve thought about putting avocados on my face, but then decided I’d rather eat it. I had them in a margarita before…

  18. Laura (Blogging Over Thyme) May 1, 2013 at 8:38 am #

    I haven’t used it for this before (mostly, cuz I want to EAT them, haha–sorta gets in the way), but I’ve heard they make great masks!

  19. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie May 1, 2013 at 8:47 am #

    I guess the weridest thing I’ve done with avocados is make a alfredo sauce out of them. Not that weird but it’s all I’ve got haha.

    I just love Avocados….I can’t use them in any other ways than just eat them. They don’t last in the house long enough. And don’t ask me to share one with you….you get your own!

  25. Meg @ In the Kitchen & On the Run May 1, 2013 at 8:53 am #

    I have done an avocado and olive oil hair mask…swooooon.

  26. Stephanie H May 1, 2013 at 8:53 am #

    I tried making an avocado-banana ice cream the other day. It failed. As I was pouring in just a TEASPOON of vanilla extract, I didn’t realize that the one that I always used has changed the bottle from the way they used to be. Ended up pouring too much too fast and probably a tablespoon ended up in my blender :(
    I’m sure the ice cream would’ve tasted awesome if it wasn’t for that mishap.

  27. Megan {Country Cleaver} May 1, 2013 at 9:17 am #

    Now I have two songs stuck in my head based on recipes today. At some point the “My Milkshake brings are the boys to the yard” song and “Oklahoma/Guacamole” are going to merge into one fantastics (or horrifying) singing compilation… Be afraid. And hungry.

  28. Becky May 1, 2013 at 9:22 am #

    Mask with avocado and honey. But mostly in my mouth as guac

  29. Carolyn May 1, 2013 at 9:22 am #

    Mmmmkay. Not so sure about the song, Bev. Sorry! However, I AM sure that this recipe, and the rest of Gaby’s cookbook, are pretty awesome!

  30. Jennifer C. May 1, 2013 at 9:24 am #

    I’ve used them on my face. The cookbook looks amazing!

  31. Danielle May 1, 2013 at 9:40 am #

    Although I love avocados, I haven’t tried it in any non-food related experiments. I have had it in a chocolate mousse and that was different, yet tasty. I’ve seen this cookbook featured on several sites and I’m dying to get my hands on a copy! I buy at least 1, if not 2 or 3 avocados every week! Love them.

  32. Danielle May 1, 2013 at 9:40 am #

    Pinned it.

  33. Mountaincat May 1, 2013 at 9:52 am #

    Oh my gosh! Avocados are my favorite food in the entire world! A whole book on nothing but avocados! Heavenly!!! I can’t wait to try this guacamole!

  35. davis ann May 1, 2013 at 10:03 am #

    i think that the only thing i’ve ever done with avocados is eat them. but man do i love to eat them.

  36. GingerMae May 1, 2013 at 10:11 am #

    I learned about Avacado Toast from Shutterbean and have been preaching it’s deliciousness to anyone who will listen. Not such a strange thing to do with avocados, but who needs strange when it’s that good!

  37. Marlina May 1, 2013 at 10:20 am #

    I’ve used avocados on my hair before ! It was weird, they’re deff better for eating

  38. Sabina May 1, 2013 at 10:20 am #

    Oh my god – not kidding – i did an avocado mask on my hair last night! and then i wrapped a plastic grocery bag around my head for half an hour. There will be at least one avocado in my fridge at any given time. Avocados – how i love thee!!

  39. Erin L May 1, 2013 at 10:21 am #

    Chilled Avocado Soup!! So good when it’s 187 degrees outside & you can’t imagine having to chew.. or digest. Sometimes I throw in some fresh corn kernels & grilled shrimp if it’s cool enough to masticate. YUM! (In the interest of disclosure: it’s not actually ever 187 degrees here. And by here I mean Earth. You get the point…)

    Oh I loooove avocados, so I have to enter this!!! Although I have to say the only ‘crazy’ thing I have done with avocado, aside from eating way too much of it, is to use it on my face. I also make pita pizzas using avocado for sauce (woaaah, crazy right? *Sigh* not really)

    Also I have to just add: I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!! I am constantly drooling over the recipes you post…thank you for sharing! :)

  53. Chelsea May 1, 2013 at 11:46 am #

  54. Jessica Crumpacker May 1, 2013 at 11:46 am #

    No weird ways just shoveling them in my mouth!

  59. charj May 1, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

    I like eating avocados too much to use them as a hair or skin treatment; so no “weird” uses.

  60. Meagan @ Scarletta Bakes May 1, 2013 at 12:26 pm #

    AMAZING guac! If eating avocados straight out of the skin is weird, then I am super STRANGE.

  61. Barb P. May 1, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    I like them slices on sandwiches and in guac. Also like them with evoo and sea salt!

  62. Carly @ Snack Therapy May 1, 2013 at 12:38 pm #

    I guess I’m kind of an avocado purist, because I haven’t really used them in any super special way. I do, however, use avocado in any place where mayonnaise would be used: sandwich spreads, chicken salad…

    Oh! And I’ve tried the avocado-as-pasta-sauce thing. Interesting.

    The most untraditional thing I’ve done with them is include them in a smoothie, but that isn’t really all that strange. I’d much rather eat them in a salad, sandwich, wrap or as a topping though.

  77. Sarah L May 1, 2013 at 2:20 pm #

  121. DessertForTwo May 2, 2013 at 7:34 am #

    I would have to say that I don’t really experiment much with avocados outside of food… mostly because unless avocados are on super sale, I rather eat my expense then rub it on my face or hair. However, I did just use mashed up avocados to liven up my chicken salad. Does that count? ;)

    Gosh golly gee willa-kers….totally wish I would have seen this post last night! I made guac for the troops, but no shrimp – they would have died though over the shrimp. Next time…

    And truly – I just love avocados & simple guac….there is nothing better, in my book.

    This isn’t weird, but I love to eat it mashed up on toast!

    I haven’t used avocados for anything but eating. I love them and would love to have the cookbook!

    Not too weird, but avocado smoothies and pies!

  131. Michelle May 3, 2013 at 7:27 am #

    After cutting avocados for salad or guacamole, I rub the avocado oil on my hands into my hands and onto my dry elbows! Works every time!

    Holy Moly that looks good! Since I follow a low carb diet most of the time, this is right up my alley! I probably wouldn’t even miss the tortilla chips. I HAVE used them on my face, and also in sugar free chocolate truffles which were amazing! I could eat avocados all day long and never get sick of them – I’m surprised nobody has dedicated an entire cookbook to them sooner! It’s about time! Can’t wait to check this one out. Also your photos….just….wow!

    Hiya! Found your blog through Pinterest….you are very talented and hilarious! Just wanted to drop a quick note to a fellow lover of all things with avocados…Did you know: if you pop that little stem off and it’s green, the flesh inside that avocado is perfect. Any sign of brown on the bellybutton, it’s crap. Sometimes squeezing them you can tell, but if you’re investing cash at the grocery store for these gems, pop open their bellybuttons first! :)

    • Patti May 22, 2013 at 9:11 am #

      to be clear, remove stem and look inside circle on the fruit.

    One day over ripened avocados can be used as a substitute for margarine in baking. Toll House cookies with Avocado are Killa!!

    When I was pregnant, I sliced up an avocado and fried it. It was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever done. I see “fried avocados” on menus now, and it makes me puke in my mouth a little.
