Creamy Guacamole

July 02, 2020



Creamy Guacamole with Celery Sticks, Carrot Sticks, Cucumber, and Crackers

For avocado lovers, it can be pretty hard to top guacamole—the ultimate mash-up of rich ripe avocados with sour and bright lime, savory and punchy garlic, and salt. Some add pico de gallo (a mince of fresh tomatoes, onions, and cilantro), minced tomatoes, diced or smoked jalapeno or serrano peppers, the sweet-and-sour pop of pomegranate seeds, or even toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds). But, what about a creamy guacamole?

We're partial to mayo made with avocado oil around these parts. We thought: How can we make next-level guacamole that delivers an unexpected punch of flavor? Adding classic mayo with avocado oil is fantastic, Chipotle Lime Mayo adds a kicky fire, but our Pesto Mayo transforms regular guacamole into a surprise burst of basil and garlic that's entirely unique. Never mind that our creamy guacamole recipe is Whole30, keto- and paleo-friendly; it's a new take on a classic that you'll crave. 

How to Make Creamy Guacamole

Our two-step process makes it super easy to throw together creamy guacamole whenever the urge strikes. The key to a great guacamole is a combo of very ripe (but not over ripe) avocados and a blend of sharp garlic, salt, the tang of freshly squeezed lime juice, and the grassy taste of fresh cilantro. Stir in a cup of creamy mayonnaise—we're obviously partial to our mayo made with avocado oil—and prepare your tastebuds for the creamiest, richest guacamole you've ever tasted. 

Creamy Guacamole

Time: 10 minutes

Servings: 32 

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup Primal Kitchen Pesto Mayo 

Instructions

Creamy Guacamole

  • Cut avocados in half. Remove the pits carefully from the middle of the avocado, using a spoon to scoop them out.
  • Scoop the green flesh out of the avocado skins and place into a large bowl. Add garlic, lime juice, salt, and cilantro. 
  • Mash the avocado until mostly smooth. Add the mayo to the bowl, and stir well to combine all ingredients.
  • Serve the creamy guacamole with raw vegetables, such as carrot and celery sticks, jicama, bell pepper strips, sliced cucumbers, or cauliflower florets, flackers, or gluten-free crackers. 

Note: If you're doing Whole30, omit the gluten-free crackers or flackers, and just eat with veggies.
