Creamy guacamole filled with fresh strawberries and sweet mangoes in every bite. Sweetened with a little bit of passion fruit juice, this guacamole is both healthy and easy to make, just in time for Memorial Day weekend and summer.
Okay, so I know I just posted my Sweet Corn and Edamame Guacamole recipe a little over a week ago, but it is Memorial Day weekend. How can we have BBQs without dips and chips, right?
This guacamole dip is completely gluten free, vegan, and healthy. You won’t feel guilty over eating this dip, I promise. The guacamole is creamy and slightly sweetened with passion fruit juice, with chunky bits of strawberries and mangoes in every bite. Seasoned with a little bit of salt, this dip is perfect with chips or crackers. It took me about 10 minutes to make.
A few days ago, Joanna from the Food Gurly posted a photo of Edamame Chips by Crunchmaster on Instagram which caught my interest. I’m currently obsessed with edamame (among other things) so I really wanted to try them. Unfortunately, stores aren’t carrying any of those chips in my area at the moment, but I decided to look at their other products and discovered their gluten free Multi-Grain Crackers. These crackers were on sale at Safeway so I thought I’d give it a try.
On their Facebook page, Crunchmaster has a “Recipe Challenge” where you can create a recipe using their product plus a secret ingredient and win prizes. I thought it’d be fun to create a recipe for the challenge. And if you’re interested, you can participate in the challenge too. You can find details on Crunchmaster’s Facebook page. There’s still time to enter. =)
First, slice a large avocado in half and remove the pit from the center. Use a spoon to carve the avocado from its outer shell. Mash the avocado until it becomes smooth.
Add passion fruit juice to the mashed avocado. Make sure not to add the black passion fruit seeds otherwise your dip will have an extra crunch. Passion fruit itself is pretty expensive. I was lucky enough to have access to fresh passion fruit juice at a reasonable price so I used it. But if you don’t have it, you can leave it out. I just used it as a natural sweetener to give the guacamole a more “tropical” taste.
Chop up mango and strawberries (the secret ingredient for this month) until you have about a ½ cup of each.
Add the strawberries and mango into avocado. Mix until they are evenly incorporated.
Sprinkle in salt to taste.
If you prefer your dip cold, refrigerate your guacamole for 20-30 minutes. Or you can serve the guacamole immediately.
Serve the guacamole in individual servings with chips or crackers.
