Did you know that avocado is an aphrodisiac? I must confess, I absolutely adore avocados.  If I had to be stuck on a dessert island with one food only – it would be the avocado.  They are so rich and creamy – my daughter and I simply slice one in half and just spoon out the avocado flesh straight into our mouths.  It is also divine on a slice of toast sprinkled with a little Himalayan salt. Great in a little homemade sushi rolls. Check out some sauce recipes here and here and here.  

But you know where the avocado really shines? Yeap – Guacamole! Enjoy with chips or eat it straight out of the bowl with a spoon!

Oh yeah, and avocados are rich in Vitamins A, E, fiber, easy to assimilate plant proteins, high in mono-unsaturated, heart healthy, cholesterol reducing good fats, anti-inflammatory…  Do I really need to go on? Or did I have you at “aphrodisiac”?

2 limes or lemons, juiced
