Strawberry Basil Guacamole (5 minutes)
If you’re a guacamole lover, like most of us, then you’ll find this combination to be a bit different than what you’re used to in guacamole. But, it is so good, so creamy, sweet, and goes great with everything you use savory guacamole for. Since strawberries and avocados are both fruits, and they go with pretty much anything, I figured this would be a good mix. And it was…better than good…amazing! The basil and lemon add a tangy edge, and spread this on toast, dip chips in it, vegetables, or fruit, and it will be the highlight of all the flavors. This recipe is a must try, it’s simple, and you may just eat the whole batch, it’s that addictive.
Avocados are a unique fruit, high in fat rather than carbohydrates and sugar. They are nutrient dense containing high amounts of potassium (more than a banana), folate, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, E, K, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, and zinc. The monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid) in avocados promote heart health, have no cholesterol, prevent cancer, maintain weight, balance appetite, and reduce inflammation. Avocados are especially great for fighting breast and ovarian cancer thanks to their oleic acid. They are also more resistant to oxidation by heat so it is ok to use this oil in cooking without destroying the all the benefits. Include this superfood in your diet when you can. You won’t regret it.
