Avocado dip and milkshake!!

Avocado is very healthy and is loaded with nutrients and good fats.Known for its rich creamy taste, Butter Fruit or Avocado can act as a rich source of essential protein for Vegetarians and Vegans. Butter Fruit or Avocado is known for high fiber content and is a good source of Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Potassium, Copper and has high levels of Folate.

The dip is very easy and quick to make.Guacamole is a Mexican  dip.It tastes amazing with nachos or tortillas.Avocado provides for a rich flavor and creamy texture.

The ingredients needed are-

1 ripe avocado(ripe as in really dark in color and slightly soft when squeezed),1 small chopped onion,2 tablespoon of coriander leaves ,1 tablespoon lemon juice and salt to taste.
