  1. Hi Anuja and Hetal,
    I make guacamole at least two to three times a week as it is a wonderfully nutritious raw food with healthy oils. I love your recipe, as I also add cumin and that is many times left out in the making of the dish. This dish can be made several hours ahead by taking a piece of plastic wrap and placing down inside the bowl mashing carefully over and on the guacamole to press out any air. It helps to keep it a lovely green. Also, if anyone has a vaccum sealer it can be put in vaccum plastic bags and the sealer will remove any air that can oxidize the avocados. My sister had a vaccum sealer and literally used to make large amounts enough to eat each day for a week at a time. Thanks so much giving us great recipes.

  2. Hey,

    Here is just a tip for shortcut/easy way of making it… just add some salsa into the mashed avocado and some lemon juice… it will still taste very good.

  3. Hi Hetal and Anuja,

    For how many days we can keep it fresh??as u said that if we add lemon …it will not turn into black…is good in freeze for 2-3 days or not?


    1. Hi Shailee,

      Guacamole will stay fresh for about 1-2 days…3 days max in the refrigerator. Even with the lemon, it tends to lose it’s fresh taste after that.

  4. hey, i did try to make it before u posted ur recipe, and it was 2 times….but i couldnt get beyond the cutting of guacomole…i simply dont know how to choose the avacado which is soft enough to mash with fork or spoon…mine were so tough, or should i say unripe may be….i couldnt scoop them out easily and after 15 mins i did sccop out but couldnt able to mash it properly with spoon so there was no question of mixing the other ingredients…plz guide me if u can..i just love this dip but never able to make it just because of this prob…

  5. Garlic + olive oil + just a lil Herbes de Provence = french twist to guacamole 😉

    Give it a shot. I hope you all like it.

      1. It’s a French spice mix. It typically contains savory, fennel, basil, thyme, and lavender flowers and other herbs. (predominatly thyme).

  6. A slight variation, you could add some grated garlic as suggested by other viewers and to make it a little more smoother, you can add a spoon or 2 of yogurt, it gives a sour cream gaucamole effect! minus all that fat..
