This healthy vegan guacamole recipe is delicious and super easy to make. It is the perfect healthy, dairy-free dip for tortilla chips!
If you’ve been looking for a delicious, healthy dip, look no further!
I made this vegan guacamole as a healthy alternative to store-bought dips for tortilla chips. I absolutely love tortilla chips and I usually eat them with salsa, but I was feeling like I needed a bit of a change.
I’ve never been a huge fan of guacamole, but after making this I actually found myself craving it more than salsa. It is so simple to make so you may not expect it to be spectacular, but I’m telling you, it is!
What is in this healthy guacamole recipe?
- Lime juice
- Yellow onion
- Garlic powder
- Ground cumin
- Jalapeno pepper
Of course, avocados are the base of every guacamole recipe. This recipe makes about 1.5 cups and requires two ripe avocados.
It is very important that your avocados are ripe for this recipe!
Give them a gentle squeeze and ensure that they are fairly soft. If they are too firm, wait a day or two before making this vegan guacamole.
For the lime juice, you will need 2 teaspoons, which you should be able to get out of only half of one lime.
I use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic for many of my recipes because it’s cheaper and will last longer. I find that it takes me awhile to get through a garlic bulb, so using powder makes more sense for me. However, if you want to you can use 1-2 garlic cloves instead of a teaspoon of garlic powder for this recipe.
How to make this guacamole
To make this recipe, all you need to do is add all the ingredients together and mix them up!
I personally like to blend it all up in a food processor because I like a smoother texture for my guacamole. I just leave out the chopped jalapeno and mix that in because I like the bit of crunch it adds.
If you prefer your guacamole to have a bit of a chunkier texture, you can mash your avocados with a fork, then mix in the remaining ingredients.
What to eat it with
This healthy vegan guacamole goes great with many things. Here are some suggestions:
- Dip your tortilla chips in it (check out this recipe for oil-free tortilla chips!)
