It’s practically summertime and that means that it’s also the perfect time for ripe, savory guacamole recipes! Not just a dip for chips, guac is also a great spread on sandwiches and, of course, tacos and burritos. Mix some into your salads for a creamy touch to your dressing. And up your favorite guacamole recipe’s health benefits with organic greens!
Why add organic greens to guacamole?
Avocado, the main ingredient in guacamole, is loaded with healthy fats and fiber and plant protein (about 3 grams per average avocado!). Its rich natural creaminess lends itself well to the addition of nutrient-dense organic greens, like our own mustHave greens, which are loaded with alfalfa and oat grass, kale, spirulina and chlorella. These powdered give your guac a good nutritious boost, a bit more protein and a rich flavor. And of course, it takes the green color to the next level.
Summer Guacamole Recipe with Organic Greens
Prep 10 minutes to prepare
Makes about 3 cups
2 large, ripe Hass avocados
Juice of half of one large lime or entire small one
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 a jalapeño pepper, including seeds, finely chopped
1/4 tsp sea salt salt
1 tsp. dried organic greens
Once your avocadoes are perfectly ripe (and they can go from too firm to too soft in a few hours!), peel and seed them, putting the avocado flesh into a large bow.
Add lime juice and coat well and using a masher or a fork, mash until the avocado achieves the smooth consistency you like. If you like a really chunky avocado, you can reserve about ½ of one avocado, and cut that into small chunks and add into the rest of the mash.
Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Serve fresh. Recipe doubles or triples easily.
