The Health Benefits of Guacamole

There are few things as delicious, healthy, and easy to whip as guacamole. The reason guacamole is so healthy lies in its main ingredient – avocados.

Avocados are a good source of healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals that can improve your well-being in many different ways, including lowering cholesterol levels, improving heart health and bone density, preventing cancer, reducing the risk of depression, and promoting healthy skin and hair. 

The other ingredients used in guacamole, such as fresh lime juice, garlic, and fresh herbs, also provide additional health benefits. Overall, you don’t have any reason to approach guacamole with caution; adding it to your diet can be one of the most nutritious and delicious choices you’ll ever make.

Having said that, it’s common to serve guacamole with tacos, chips, or other Tex-Mex delicacies that don’t always come in the healthy lane of the road. If your love for guacamole is making you consume a lot of trans fats and carbs, you might want to look for healthier vessels to eat this divine condiment with, such as salads, roasted meat, or veggies.

When Is the Best Time to Make Guacamole?

Guacamole can be enjoyed year-round, but it’s especially delicious when made with fresh, in-season avocados in spring. So, the best time to make guacamole is during March, April, and May. 

Avocados develop higher in oil content during spring, and that’s when you are more likely to find ripe, flavorful avocados at your local farmers market or grocery store. Avocados that are richer in oil content are healthier, as these healthy fats are the main reason we should consume them.

However, you can still make guacamole any time you want, thanks to the hard work of Mexican avocado farmers, where the avocado season lasts throughout the year.

What to Use When Making Guacamole?

The Aztecs are known to have enjoyed a type of avocado sauce, which is thought to be the predecessor of the guacamole we know and love today.

The word “guacamole” actually comes from the Aztec language Nahuatl, where “ahuacatl” means avocado, and “molli” means sauce or mixture. So guacamole means avocado sauce or avocado mixture in a language over 9 thousand years old.

So no, you shouldn’t use a blender or a food processor to make guacamole. In fact, the most traditional method to make guacamole is to use a molcajete, a traditional Mexican mortar and pestle made of volcanic rock.

You can also make a killer guacamole using a single fork, as long as you pick fresh ingredients and ripe avocados. But if you do have a set of mortar and pestle or a molcajete, this is their time to shine.

The flavors become more intense when you mix the ingredients by crushing them in a mortar and pestle. The cells that contain natural oils burst open and combine to make up new flavors. That’s why the pastes you make with a mortar and pestle almost always taste better than the ones you run through the food processor.

  1. The most important ingredient of guacamole sauce is avocado. Make sure to pick perfectly ripe avocados, as they are crucial to getting that smooth and creamy guacamole texture. To test whether an avocado is ripe, gently press on the skin with your thumb. If it yields to pressure and feels slightly soft, it is ripe and ready to use.
  2. One thing that makes guacamole great is its texture. Avoid over-mixing the ingredients to save some of the chunks in the sauce. The chunks not only add some texture to the sauce but make every bite packed with a different flavor. This is the key to making a more interesting sauce.
  3. Balancing the citrus is another important point in making the perfect guacamole. A little lime or lemon juice will help to balance the flavors and prevent the avocado from turning brown. Make sure to add an adequate amount. Some citrus juices aren’t as acidic as others, so you might need to taste your guacamole to fine-tune its citrus notes.
