Avocado is known as a great source of energy, vitamins from the groups B and E, potassium... and calories :)
It is one of my favourite fruits - I never knew whether it was a fruit or vegetable, but it is a fruit. Trust me, I checked! - which tastes equally good with some onion in guacamole as it does blended with banana in a smoothie.
Apart from those two and my new favourite - egg baked in avocado which I showed you last week, I never knew what else can be made with avocado, so here's some ideas :)

Avocado and Shrimp Sandwich
Unfortunately the original recipe is in Hungarian, but I tried to translate it and it looks like it's shrimps marinated in chili with lime and tangerine juice served with red onion and sour cream in a toasted baguette or ciabatta type bread.
