Mother Natural really knew what she was doing with these green giants. Every islander’s favorite keto-friendly, low maintenance snack is a Caribbean avocado. Unlike it’s tinier, more expensive counterpart (sorry Haas avos, we still love you), the ginormous avocados you find in the Virgin Islands are just plain better.
Between its perfectly creamy texture and its larger-than-life size, we’d be crazy not to rave about our favorite breakfast, snack, spread, appetizer…you get the point. The STOCKED gourmet chefs have a few favorites ways to serve avocado in the Caribbean.

Indulge in On-trend Avocado Toast
Don’t just do it for the ‘gram, do it for your health and flavor palate. Avocado toast comes in a million different forms, but we keep it simple around these parts. It starts with freshly baked bread straight from the STOCKED kitchen. Not too thin and not too thick, but juuust right.
We source local avocados, red onion and tomato at their peak ripeness. It’s important to sample every single ingredient on its own before creating a recipe, especially when it comes to fresh produce.
1 Caribbean avocado (equals about two Haas avocados)
½ red onion, diced
2 Roma tomatoes, diced with pulp discarded
A handful of crumbled Feta cheese
A squeeze of fresh lemon
Delicately mash the avocado flesh and lemon juice with a pestle and mortar. Use a spoon to combine the onion, tomato, salt and pepper. Finally, mix in the fresh Feta.
