Tips Tuesday: Keeping Guacamole Fresher + Recipe

Hi all.

Happy Tuesday!

Today we’re talking guacamole. And specifically, on keeping guacamole fresher (for longer)!.

Guacamole is one of my hands-down absolute favorite snacks (or if you’re like me and you eat almost the whole bowl, meals!). The only bummer is, it seems to go bad so quickly! And when I mean bad, I mean turns a weird shade of green/brown.

When the fiancé and I first started dating, he taught me this little trick on how to get more life out of your guac.

Want to know what that little trick is?

Sure ya do!

Here’s how it goes: after your’e done mashing up your fresh batch of guacamole, put the avocado pits BACK IN THE BOWL!

Easy, right?!

Right.

It sounds strange, but I swear it works. Not sure what the science behind it is, but my thought is the pits trick the avocados into thinking they’re still in their home. :) Haha, cheesy, I know.

Now take what you know, and make this easy guacamole recipe! Sure to please at your next picnic, bbq, or potluck. Or you can just enjoy the whole dang bowl to yourself (I do!).

Easy Guacamole Recipe

Ingredients:

3-4 avocados (depending on size)

1 jalapeño, de-seeded and minced

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

juice of 1/2-1 lime (depending on size)

3-4 cloves garlic, minced

salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Peel avocados and scoop insides into bowl.

Add in jalapeño, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice.

Mash until well blended. You do not need one of those fancy mortar and pestle thingies, just a plain old potato masher (or fork) will do!

Fresher, longer, more delicious guacamole.  

What other ingredients do you like in your guacamole? Any other add-ins I should could consider trying?

Until next time…happy clean eating!

  1. Hi Kate! I just made guac last weekend! I also put chopped up tomato and salt- I think the salt kinda makes the other flavours pop. Love ya! xx

      Oh yes of course! We always put salt (and pepper) in too. The fiancé does not like tomatoes in his guac though. :)
