Guacamole made simple!

The best condiment on the planet if you ask me, has to be guacamole. It’s easy to make, delicious and filled with healthy fats, vitamins, enzymes and fiber. You go to the store and there are so many pre made versions of guacamole that are loaded with artificial preservative and MSG. Or even worse, those flavor packets with bad iodized salt, MSG and dehydrated vegetables that you’re supposed to mix in with wholesome precious avocados.

If people knew how insanely easy guacamole really is they wouldn’t be buying this stuff. Fresh, homemade guacamole from scratch takes less than 10 minutes and is 10 million times better than anything you can get from the store.

There are different variations and you can get creative. I love adding a fresh chopped tomato to my guacamole for an extra burst of flavor and color. If you like it spicy you can experiment with adding different hot peppers. The options are endless. But I’d love to share with you just how easy guacamole can be.

The Basics of Beautiful Guacamole

The most basic version of guacamole that you can mash together in under 5 minutes.

2 ripe avocados

1 clove fresh minced garlic

1 Tablespoon lime juice

handful chopped cilantro

1 teaspoon sea salt

Drizzle of olive oil

Mash the avocado and mix in the rest of the ingredients.

While some days it’s best to keep things simple, other times you might want to go the extra mile.
