Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Friends. 🍀

Whether you’re wearing green, going green, liking green, or nothing at all…hopefully you’ll love the yummy green we’re dishing up today.

You may or may not be pinched because we’re fully grown-ups now, but you’re definitely in luck. Not trying to brag or make anyone turn green with envy, but the best guacamole in the galaxy has just arrived.

{In our very humble opinion}

If you make this 5-Minute Real Avocado, your taste buds will feel lucky, indeed. You might even pinch yourself just to make sure you’re not dreaming…

As always, authentic guacamole starts with the freshest ingredients. No sour cream or yogurt or filler type add-ins. Just pure, whole, and real goodness.

Plenty of semi-firm avocados. You don’t want overly ripe ones, as they won’t stay as green; plus, you want a bit of chunky in this toothsome guac.

Tomatoes, jalapeno, onion, lime, cilantro, garlic and spices = YUM x 7.

Also. This 5-Minute Real Guacamole happens to be whole30 and paleo compliant, for those of you who are interested.

Prep Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 5 mins


  • 6 large haas avocados, semi-ripe
  • Juice of 2 fresh limes
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • ½ cup grape or cherry tomatoes, chopped and seeded/drained
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt


  • Halve avocados, remove the seeds, and scoop flesh into a large bowl. Roughly mash with a fork, leaving some chunky bits. Immediately fold in lime juice, using a spoon or rubber spatula. Gently fold in all remaining ingredients until combined. Transfer guacamole to serving bowl; place cling wrap directly over the guacamole to form an airtight seal. Chill until ready to serve.


If desired, you can replace the garlic powder with 2 cloves of freshly minced garlic.
Guacamole can stay fresh and green 1-2 days if completely airtight; be sure that cling wrap is resting directly over the surface of guacamole to prevent any air from seeping in.
