Easy Creamy Guacamole

guacamole

I’m a big fan of avocado and I really love the buttery texture of guacamole but when you buy it in the shop it always seems to contain wheat, sugar, vegetable oil or if you’re really lucky.. all 3!

Guacamole takes me 5 minutes to make it and then I adore it as a side serving on salad, on scrambled eggs, topped on fish or just dipping crudites into it.

Avocado is full of healthy monounsaturated fat which has been demonised by the low-fat industry for far too long, read here.  It has been a key part of the heart healthy Mediterranean diet for decades and it is one of the most nutritionally dense fruit you can eat.  It is full of B Vitamins – great for sustaining energy levels, high in Vitamin C – boosting your immune system, keeps your skin looking glowing with Vitamin E and it is packed with minerals such as magnesium and potassium to name a few.  Avocados have even been shown to induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) of cancer cells.
