Creamy Guacamole

If you love avocados or guacamole, (or you just need something to wow your friends at the next get together) this is the recipe for you. This amount is just perfect for about 3 people! It's so creamy and delicious that I could've eaten the whole batch myself.  

While I wouldn't recommend eating the whole batch, this recipe is addicting & packed with nutrients.  You might already know that avocados a great source of heart-healthy fat {unsaturated fat}.  They are also packed full of potassium, fiber, and vitamins, like C, K, and B6.  No guilt here!

By the way, don't forget to head over to the Giveaways & check out my Sweetheart Steal for Valentine's Day.  There might just be something you're interested in.  Okay, back to the recipe...

Here's what you'll need:
3 ripe avocados
1 tsp salt
1 tsp lime juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 frozen cubes cilantro {or a few Tbsp}

First make sure your avocados are ripe. If they are still a little hard, place them in a brown paper bag with an apple for a day or two. They will ripen more quickly! Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed in the middle, and peel. Add the avocados to a large bowl and mash with a fork until it's at your desired consistency.  {Some people love creamy guacamole, some love it a little chunky. I made mine more creamy.}

Next, add salt, lime juice, minced garlic, and cilantro. {If you're using the frozen cilantro cubes, just break them up with your fingers before you add them in.} Mix & enjoy! Store in an airtight container.
