This little dish is so delicious, you almost want to eat it for dessert. The wonderful blend of agave and key lime juice makes this Avocado Heavenly Treat is a little piece of heaven! This is so crazy simple to make you won’t believe it.

Avocado Heavenly Treat has been one of my favorite little things to make in the am. I always thought there were only so many things you could do with an avocado. Boy was I wrong. I love putting it in guacamole, salads, plain, on burritos or other dishes, etc. I saw something similar with peaches and thought it might work for avocado’s with a tweak or two.

The original recipe I saw years ago used peaches, maple syrup, walnuts, and some seasonings. I decided to simplify it because avocado’s have such a rich taste to begin with. Using agave instead of maple syrup made the taste smoother. And since I love key limes, I used key lime juice. I started with 1/2 Tsp of key lime juice, ending up with 2 Tbsp. My Avocado Heavenly Treat was born!

I also tried a few different herbs, then ended up using Chipotle seasoning. It compliments the incredibly smooth flavor of the agave and key lime juice. I used a little, but if you love Chipotle, yo+u can always use more.

Start by slicing a medium or large avocado in half (I love this so much I use a large). Do not peel the skin off and leave the seed in the other half until you are ready to use it. In the half without the seed, place it on a serving plate ready to assemble.

Spoon the Key Lime Juice in the center of the avocado. Then spoon the agave on top of the lime juice. Let it sit for 1 minute to help the two meld together.

Sprinkle the chipotle seasoning on top and a little on the plate. Now take your spoon and enjoy all the deliciousness from this wonderful little treat! Enjoy and I bet you can’t eat just one half!
