Local Fruits

I've been enjoying the local fruits here. Some are similar to the ones I've had in the states, but the flavors are more intense here.
This is my favorite fruit of the moment.

Cooked in Brown Sugar. The body of the plaintains holds up the cooking better than regular bananas.

The green signifies an unripe avocado. When it turns violet (and tender), it's ripe! The transformation can happen in a day.

Fresh Milk
I got used to buying organic milk, so this is the closest alternative. We get it from Santi's Deli (a gourmet grocery in the area).

Mashed Avocado with Milk and Sugar
The taste of the avocado is intense and the texture is creamy. It's a great combination with milk and sugar.
