Sitting next to hummous, guacamole is one of my favourite dips. I will often make a batch of it and have as my snacks throughout the week, with some carrot sticks or corn chips. Dips are also great for get-togethers, and guacamole is a big crowd pleaser.
Avocado’s are great for you – they contain stacks of fibre, good (monounsaturated) fats and antioxidants such as Vitamin E. They’re a super food for fertility, balancing hormones and being anti-inflammatory and how cool is this – they’re even shaped like a womb, with the seed being the baby.
It’s super easy to make your own guacomole rather than getting it pre-made, and this way you know it’ll be free from chemicals, colours and preservatives, and it tastes soooo much better!
- 2 ripe avocados, halved, stones removed, peeled
- 1 small red onion, finely chopped
- 1 small fresh red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped
- Small handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped
- Juice of ½-1 lime
- Salt & ground black pepper, to taste
Simply mash all the ingredients together in a bowl until you get a consistency you like (I like mine to still be reasonably chunky) and viola, delicious healthy guacamole!
