Fruity Guacamole



I love Guacamole, and yet, it’s  something that I rarely make at home.  I don’t know why. It’s full of heart healthy fat and tastes so good, that I always wonder why I don’t make it more often.


This guacamole isn’t your typical run-of-the-mill guac. It’s packed with vitamin rich fruit! 


Yep. You heard me. Fruit.


Now hold on there a minute, before you start screeching the brakes, it really is worth a try. 
Sweet mangos, juicy peaches, tart granny smith apples, and fresh basil turn this guacamole into something truly special.


I added a little cilantro too, for the traditional zippiness (is that a word?).


Serve with tortillas chips, or if you’re trying to be a little more conscious of your waistline, scoop it up with fresh celery spears or sweet pepper strips.




Fruity Guacamole
  • 2 avocados
  • juice of one lime
  • 1/4 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 yellow peach, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 habanero pepper, seeds removed, minced (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
  • salt & pepper to taste
1. Cut each avocado in half, remove the pit, and slice the flesh into small cubes. Scoop the cubes into a medium bowl, and mash with a fork until chunky.
2. Stir in the lime juice, diced onion, mango, peaches, apple, habanero pepper (if using), basil, and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!

Love it and does not make it as often as I would like. Never seen it with mangoes. That must be delicious.

This sounds very interesting..I love your recipe, bit unusual but I would be all over it..I love the idea of mango in it! Great photos too!

Stephanie said...

What a cool idea!! I'm obsessed with homemade guacamole! I bet the mangoes are really good with it!!

Becky said...

I love guac with fruit, especially mango. Have never made it with peach, so that will be next. Great pics.

thanks for the idea.

Fruit - wow! I made guacamole tonight (I make it at home all the time- I can't get enough of it) but it wouldn't have occured to me to add fruit!

If you're watching your weight, another thing you can do is to make homemade tortilla chips - just cut up a tortilla wrap (180 calories), add some cooking spray and salt and pepper and bake in a hot oven for a couple of minutes.

I love avocado anything. :) I've never put fruit (except tomatoes) in guacamole, but it sounds delicious!

Ann said...

I make guacamole at home all the time...and this sounds like something I would LOVE to try! Buzzed!

What an interesting version. Not too far off as avocado is actually genetically a fruit.

This sounds good. I don't know if I would make it with apples and peaches, maybe just peaches, or maybe mangoes.

I make guacamole at home, a few times a year. So easy and so delicious,

Kim Bee said...

This is beautiful and I bet it tastes even better than it looks. Such a great twist on a classic. Must be buzzed.

Congrats on the Top 9 today!

Lisa said...

This sounds absolutely delicious! I also love guacamole but have never made it at home. We always have an avocado on hand, so I should just do it! Thanks for this twist on the usual recipe.

I've made guacamole with peaches before and it is good. I like the idea of mangoes too, but would have never, in a million years, thought of putting apples or basil in it. I live in Mexico and eat quite a bit of guacamole. I can't wait to see the reactions when I serve this recipe.

Magic of Spice said...

I love it! Such a great idea and such great flavor parings...totally delicious!

Natalie said...

Watermelon is another fruit you should try in guac---so delish! I've never put peach in mine--can't wait to see how it is!

Monet said...

Delicious! And I love the fruity twist on one of our favorite eats. Thanks for sharing. We will be making this over the weekend!

Jacqueline said...

I adore guacamole! I just posted an avocado salsa. Can't get enough. I really have to go drool over your lemon basil chicken salad now! Sounds fantastic.

Emily Malloy said...

This rocks my world!

sprinklingofsugar said...

Wow what a genius idea! I've heard of adding peas to guac before, but never this!

Elizabeth Lou and Company said...

I love that you totally adapted this and gave it your own twist, it looks delicious!
