Healthy Guacamole Recipe

I am definitely a dip-kinda-girl. I don’t really like raw vegetables, but give me a dip to go with them and that’s a different story.

My Favorite Dip

My favorite dip, hands down, is guacamole. I could eat it every day … and if avocados were a little less expensive, I probably would. Hmmm … maybe I could grow my own avocados. (Why does my brain always go in this direction?) Does anyone know how to grow an avocado tree? Not the kind you start by sticking toothpicks into an avocado pit and putting it into a glass of water on the window sill, but a real one that produces real avocados.

How to Make Healthy Tomato-Free Guacamole

There are lots of ways to make guacamole. My favorite guacamole is this simple, healthy tomato-free guacamole. So easy! Just avocados, onion, cilantro, lime, garlic, and salt.

Five minutes – start to finish. Mild, yet full of flavor.

What I Love About This Healthy Guacamole

This guacamole is actually tomato-free. Nothing wrong with tomatoes, but my thinking is, avocados are soooo good, why “water down” the fabulous avocado taste with tomatoes? Especially the plastic-y, winter-time tomatoes? But if you like tomatoes, go ahead and add a few. 

I also like that this guacamole is super flavorful even though it doesn’t include spices. It’s kid-friendly and good for the tummy! (Spices have been shown to be irritating to both the digestive system and the nervous system. Herbs on the other hand, are very good for your health.)

    I absolutely agree with josh and Jennifer, it’s my favorite too. I give it 6 stars. Avocado is a tropical tree but we are growing some trees in ky indoors. They are three years old and they are 5′ now. We love you guys and miss you a lot.

    1. Thank you Angela.
      That’s awesome that your trees are still doing so well! I’m anxious to hear about your first homegrown avocado fruit.
      Love and miss you too.

    After years of not being quite satisfied with guacamole, I realized it is the tomatoes and the onion that ruined it for me. I made a recipe recently using a generous amount of garlic granules, avocado, lemon juice, and lots of dry pepper combinations including pepperocini flakes. I omitted the parsley/ cilantro leaves. Absolutely love love loved it. Here’s a tip.” Do not use large avocado’s like Hass – compromises smoothness. Use small avocado’s, and just double for your recipe. Thanks for validating my new found appreciation for guacamole.

  6. I’d like to make this a couple of hours in advance of using it. What tips can you give me please to prevent it going brown?


    1. Hi Mero,
      If you very quickly get it covered with plastic wrap after you make it, it should do okay. Be sure the plastic wrap lays directly on the guacamole to prevent all contact with air. It won’t keep long this way, but if you work quickly and minimize the guac’s contact with air, it should be good for a couple hours.

      1. Thanks very much. I’m making it this evening and I’m really looking forward to it without tomatoes. I’ve a tomato salsa too so the guacamole without toms will be great.


  7. Hey Jennifer,
    I do not think you are aware that your printer link does not work. At least not with apple ios platform. Not sure why but i have had no trouble printing from other sites….just yours. Your recipes are great!

    Thanks. Tomatoes are a nightshade and contain lectins, but are apparently OK without the skin and Seeds. See Dr. Gundry on lectins.

    We made this yesterday and really liked it. This will be my guacamole recipe from now on.
