Guacamole Recipe

A young girl making homemade guacamole with fresh cut avocados in a white bowl surrounded by the rest of her fresh ingredients


  • 2 ripe avocado's
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, fresh
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, small to medium
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper


Using a knife, cut into the avocado lengthwise and cut around it through to the pit in the center.  

Once you've cut around the entire avocado, twist it and separate the two sides.  

Remove the pit.  

Scoop out the ripe avocado and mash it up.  

Mince the garlic.

Chop the fresh cilantro, you can simply cut it with a knife or use specific herb cutters.

Add the minced garlic, the chopped cilantro, the lime juice, the onion powder, sea salt and white pepper to the avocados.  Mash, stir and serve.
