Holy guacamole. You need this homemade guacamole in your life.

Like yesterday.

I often think I’d love nothing more than to dive face first into a pile of homemade guacamole.

And never surface.

But then again, I do like to sit in the sun and dip my chips in this guac- so maybe I’ll just choose that option, instead.

Either way, I’m happy.

It’s that time of the year again- time to whip up your favorite summer snacks and I’ve got you covered. Guacamole is quite possibly the greatest dip in the world and eating it in the summer is just beyond amazing.

I could make an avocado recipe every day in the summer and when I make my guacamole, I make an extra batch to keep in the fridge and use it throughout the week in everything from salads to sandwiches. But today I’m dipping in some of these tasty gluten-free Artisan Nut-Thins crackers for a perfect afternoon BBQ, picnic or trip to the beach. They’re light and crisp so you don’t have to worry about them getting soggy in your bag or from the moisture and heat of this summer sunshine. No, sir.

I think we can all agree that guacamole is quite perfect for summer and certainly face smash worthy and delish.

Am I right?

Make two batches. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.

Enjoy!

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. I love the addition of tahini – I’ve never seen that before! My hubs will diiiiie over this recipe! Thank you! 🙂

  2. I love guacamole. The addition of basil makes it sound even more refreshing and delicious. Can’t wait to try this one!! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Is there a sub for the tahini? I’ve never used this before and don’t know if I want to invest in a jar.

    1. Peanut butter makes an acceptable replacement for tahini. I’ve used it in a pinch in the past when making hummus.

      1. Almond butter is a good substitute as well, if you don’t want that peanut butter taste. I find the taste of almond butter combines really well with avacado’s and basil!

  4. Oh I love guacamole!! I can’t wait to make this for cookouts at home and to take out on the lake this summer with blue corn chips 🙂 yummy!
