Correct us if we're wrong, but we were under the impression that avocados were some kind of miracle food, loaded with nutrients and a myriad of health benefits – or at least that's what we've been led to believe.
After all, an entire generation can't be wrong, can they?
Well, it seems that even though the humble avocado is a pretty healthy addition to any diet, there's always room for improvement.
Spanish food company, Isla Bonita, have gone and created The Avocado Light.
That's right, this diet avocado (??) is said to ripen faster, oxidise slower, and contains 30 per cent less fat than its non-diet counterpart.
However, that's not to say that regular avocados are inherently bad for you, in fact their high monosaturated fat content actually helps to lower bad cholesterol – but of course, as with all good things, moderation is key.
If you are interested in trying this somewhat bizarre creation, you may have to wait a while – Isla Bonita only have plans to distribute in Spain for the time being.
