I love guacamole and, as you know, I love easy peasy things! And this Easy Peasy Guacamole is so, so simple: it is ready in 5 minutes and only uses only 7 ingredients and tastes SO much better than the shop bought stuff!!
Do you love guacamole, but think it’s a bit of a faff to make your own? Think again! This Easy Peasy Guacamole just involves putting a few simple but delicious ingredients in a blender and pressing the on switch – it doesn’t get much easier than that!
Agreed it’s a little bit more work than opening a pot of shop bought guacamole, but not much! And you have to believe me when I say the flavour is about a bazillion times nicer than the shop bought stuff.
I make this guacamole in my trusty Froothie Optimum G2.3 Platinum Series blender (you can read my Froothie blender review here), which makes light work of this guacamole. I use the ‘Fruit and Veg’ setting which takes just 1 minute 30 seconds.
But if you don’t have a blender, you can absolutely use a hand blender and a bowl or jug, and it works almost as well. And if you don’t have a hand blender, just mash up the avocado and chop the other ingredients up as finely as you can – it will still taste nice but might just take you a little longer.
This recipe makes lovely smooth and creamy guacamole, but if you prefer your guacamole with more texture, then you might like to check out my Chunky Guacamole recipe instead.
