Simple Guacamole

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I used to buy those little individual cups of organic guacamole from Costco because 1) they were convenient, 2) the ingredients were minimal, and 3) we only ate a little bit at a time so the small size was perfect. Well…once my kids started getting hooked on guacamole, we could easily go through several little containers at one sitting and then it just seemed silly to waste so many containers when I *knew* I could make my own easily! And, for a while, I did. I would just mix a little salt and garlic powder into an avocado and call it guacamole. Sure, that ‘did the job,’ but I knew the flavor was missing something: the lime. However, I hardly ever buy limes unless a recipe calls for one and even then I sometimes skip it!

Well, I kind of forgot about making guacamole and didn’t eat much of it for a while. I was eating more avocados…but mostly just eating them plain with my eggs in the morning or on top of chili at dinnertime. My kids kept asking me when I was going to buy more guacamole again…and I just kept saying “soon.”

Well, then one of my favorite food/nutrition bloggers, Sally at Real Mom Nutrition, shared her recipe for No-Fuss Guacamole and that reminded me that I wanted to start making my own again! My version is very similar to Sally’s recipe, but it’s my spin on how our family likes it best. Less lime and less garlic powder. And we all love it!

Hi there! Here's a little info about me: I've been married to my husband for over 10 years and I'm a stay-at-home mom to our three young kids (a six year old daughter and four year old twin boys). As you might imagine, they keep me quite busy! In early 2013, we decided that we wanted to be a healthier family. To do this, we cut out all processed foods from our home and we now eat only REAL, whole foods. (When we're on vacation or at someone's house, we're not quite as strict.) We also try to exercise every day. Our goal is to raise healthy, happy kids...while maintaining our own health and happiness along the way! I hope you will follow along with us in our journey.

  1. Thank you! This recipe is delicious! My husband and I aren’t huge fans of onions, so an onion-free guacamole recipe is perfect. That was way too easy too!

    1. Same here…anything with less onion is usually a good thing in my book. Glad you enjoyed it, Ashley! Thanks for the feedback, as well. 🙂
