  • 2 whole Avocado ripened
  • 1/2 Red onion diced
  • 1 Lime juice squeezed
  • 1/2 Lemon juice squeezed
  • Coriander a handful, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 Red chilli deseeded, finely chopped
  • Himalayan salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Chop the onion, chilli, coriander, and place to one side
  • Peel the avocados and mash in a bowl. We recommend a metal bowl or pan – something sturdy. (I used a plastic one and it went everywhere)
  • Squeeze in the lemon and lime juice. It’s important to do this quickly to avoid browning
  • Add in the spices, vegetables, and herbs. Mix thoroughly and enjoy!


Boom baby. That’s some tasty guacamole.
You can use ordinary table salt but trust me: Himalayan pink salt is game-changing. It’s a worthwhile investment and you can find it at a decent price quite easily.
I used a lot of citrus flavours in this recipe, but you can adjust according to your preference. I find the lemon-lime combo really takes the flavour up a notch. The great part about this recipe is how versatile it is, too!
  • Top wholemeal toast with guacamole and poached egg for the ultimate breakfast.
  • Have it with a bowl of tortilla chips for a moreish snack.
  • Add to a burrito for a burst of zest and creaminess.
