Make Guacamole Yourself: 3 Tasty And Healthy Recipes

Making guacamole yourself is easy with these tasty recipes – and even healthy.

Guacamole is very easy to make yourself and is also healthy because the main ingredient of the tasty dip is avocado – and it’s a real superfood.

Positive health effects of avocado

The avocado is a real vitamin bomb and contains around 20 different vitamins and minerals, including vitamin K, which is essential for bones, the heart, and the brain. In addition, the vitamin B it contains is crucial for the health of cells and DNA, and the vitamin folate it contains is required for a large number of metabolic processes in the body.

In addition to vitamins, the avocado is also full of monounsaturated fatty acids that can have a positive effect on and even lower cholesterol levels. Due to its low glycemic index, it only allows the blood sugar level to rise very slowly, which means that it is not only well tolerated by diabetics, but also prevents dangerous food cravings. Rich in fiber, it makes you full and satisfied.
