There is tree in our garden in Cochabamba so friendly and perfect for climbing, that my daughter named him Sammy Tree when she was three and needed help climbing into its branches.
Sammy is an avocado tree and unbelievably fruitful! Last year, two branches broke under the weight of more than two hundred large avocados! With great love, my father propped the remaining fruit-laden branches up to avoid future breakage and pain to Sammy.
Seeking new ways to enjoy Sammy’s bounty, I found various recipes for avocado-based chocolate mousse. Who knew?!
So creamy and rich, it takes only a couple of spoonfuls to satisfy tummy and palate.
