Do you love guacamole? If you do not love avocados, then a good guacamole recipe is your gateway to loving this delicious and nutritious fruit.

It’s national avocado day and there’s so much to love about them. Avocados are are a superfood packed with healthy unsaturated fat, fibre and disease fighting antioxidants with so many vitamins and minerals. They are particularly high in magnesium, folate, potassium, vitamins C, E, K and B6.  They provide a protective benefit for heart, bone and eye health as well as fetal health (due to the folate levels) and general wellbeing.

With this recipe, you can place all ingredients excluding avocado in a fine blender for younger kids and then mix through mashed avocado or keep the texture in it for older kids and family.

Guacamole kid-friendly – Serves 8


6 large medium-soft avocados, skin and stone removed

6 shallots (white only) or half a red onion, finely diced

1/2 tomato, flesh finely diced and seeds removed and discarded

1/4 cup coriander/cilantro, leaves and upper part of stems only, finely chopped (washed really well and dried).

1 long red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced (optional)

1/4 cup lime juice

1 teaspoon cumin, ground

1 teaspoon coriander, ground

1.5 tsp salt


Firstly, in a medium to large bowl mash avocado with a fork or potato masher. Make it as smooth or chunky as you like.

Mix together the shallots/spring onion, cumin, coriander, chilli and tomato and stir through avocado. Add the lime juice and stir through the coriander leaves. Season with salt to taste and serve.

Serve with corn chips, tacos, chilli con carne, sourdough and eggs or whatever your heart or tastebuds desire!
