Easy Homemade Guacamole (5-Minute Recipe)

May 11, 2020 | Nutrition

Because you can’t say no to guacamole.

This easy homemade guacamole is prepared with fresh ingredients and makes the perfect healthy appetizer. Making it yourself only takes a few minutes and is way better for you than the ready-to-buy ones! 

Avocados are one of my favorite foods, so believe me when I say I go crazy about guacamole. Not only is it delicious on toasts, tacos, or as a homemade burger sauce, but it is also so easy to make.

However, it  makes me kind of anxious to see people buying it pre-made… why are you doing dis?

Every ready-to-buy preparation you’ll find at your grocery store won’t be as fresh, tasty, and healthy as if you’d make it yourself (and this also includes mixed spices!). And since guacamole is made in 5 minutes only, I can’t take “it’s faster” as an excuse.

Time to learn how to make easy homemade guacamole!
