A Taste of Delish Avocado Wontons

 This is part of a sponsored campaign with DiMe Media and Hass Avocado Board. However, all opinions expressed are my own. One of my highlights of each day is having dinner together with my family. Hablamos de todo lo que nos a pasado ese dia o hacemos follow up de otros temas.  I love cooking for my family and take pride that my son absolutely loves my cooking. It’s music to my ears when I hear my son say this to his friends “Dude, you have to try my mom’s food”. We are from Puerto Rico and unfortunately Latinos share the issue of higher type 2 diabetes rate across our community. I have seen three of my aunts suffer from this disease and was just told that I am on the border of it myself.  When my Doctor told me this, I asked her what type of fruit and vegetables I could eat and which to stay away from. To my surprise she explained that over 75% of the fat in fresh avocados is naturally good fat making them a great substitute for foods high in bad (saturated) fat.  She said avocados provide nutrition, fiber and dietary balance that children and adults need. I was so glad to hear this because at our home we love aguacates!  Check out the site for some important facts about avocados that will back up what my doctor told me.(www.saboreaunohoy.com/aguacatesydiabetes) So of course with this in mind I started thinking of different ways of incorporating avocados into our diet. This past weekend I had my prima and her family over for dinner and I made this appetizer with fresh Hass avocados and oh my gosh they were a hit! My appetizers recipe titled: Avocado Wonton Hass Avocado Red onion White Vermont cheese Sun dried tomatoes Salt Pepper Lime Wonton wraps Combine all the ingredients and wrap a small amount into each Wonton and fry. Sauces for my recipe: Ponzu Sauce and thinly sliced green onions Salsa de guayaba and Orange Fruit spread It’s this simple and incredibly delish avocado wonton. Enjoy! How do you prepare your avocados? I would love to hear what your favorite avocado recipes are.  In fact you can participate on a 10 day photo challenge contest by sharing your daily aguacate photos.  Just follow @SaboreaUnoHoy on Instagram & use hashtag #SaboreaUnoHoy for a chance to WIN a $175.00 Grocery gift card!

Ponderela’s #DOLEcioso Ice Popsicles

 This is part of a sponsored campaign with DiMe Media and DOLE Package Foods. However, all opinions expressed are my own. It’s Summer and that means our children are out of school and will be playing out doors. It’s hot out side and we need to keep cool and hydrated. My friends son Michael doesn’t like to drink a lot of water or anything else for that matter. So I told my friend I would make my Ponderela’s DOLEcioso ice Popsicles using Dole Package Frozen fruit bags that are all-natural fruit with no sugar added to keep him cool and I told her I would teach her how to make them. Check out my how to video where I used the only juice and fruit Michael likes, Dole Pineapple juice and Dole frozen strawberries. There are tons of different kinds of ice popsicles that can be made with the Dole frozen bags they have a variety of flavors like Wildly Nutritious Tropical Fruit, Wildly Nutritious Mixed Berries, Wildly Nutritious Mixed Fruit, Whole Strawberries, Sliced Peaches, Mango, Pineapple Chunks, Dark Sweet Cherries, Blueberries and Blackberries, mix with your favorite juice and you will have an amazing treat that everyone will enjoy. These are also great for toppings, baking, salads or simply as a healthy snack. I would love to hear which of these ingredients you chose to make your ice popsicles with and everyone’s reactions.
