The name Avocado comes from the Aztec word for testicle. There is a fatty alcohol found in avocados that has been tested for anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also prevents liver damage and maintains kidney function. The fresh fruit is eaten on it’s own or used in sweet or savoury dishes. We totally love avocados and our youngest daughter basically lives off them. The Avocados in the Seychelles at the moment are delicious. Creamy. We use them in everything. Guacamole, smoothies, blended up with bananas and a little coco as a desert. We love them!
