Guacamole is a dressing, dip, spread and snack. It’s vegan-friendly, gluten-free and insanely healthy. But it needs to be made right, which you’ll be able to do with this easy guacamole recipe.



  • 2 very ripe avocados
  • 1 lime
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • ¼ cup of diced red onion
  • ¼ cup of chopped cilantro


  1. Spoon out avocados into large bowl. Add lime juice, minced garlic and sea salt.
  2. With a spoon, mash together until mixture becomes creamy.
  3. Add in diced tomato, red onion and cilantro and mix until well combined.
  4. Serve immediately with sliced red peppers, celery or carrots. If your diet allows carbohydrates, serve with organic blue corn tortilla chips.


If left exposed to the air for too long, your guacamole will turn a sad brown color over time (an enzyme in the fruit reacts with the oxygen to cause this color).

To prevent, store the guac in a container and press it down and smooth-over the top so there are no air pockets. Then cover it with plastic wrap that sits against the surface of the guacamole, allowing no air to get inside.
