Kids’ Whimsical Cooking: Fresh Summer Guacamole

Addie and guacNow that it is summer time, I try to make snacks that include fresh fruits and vegetables. This time I made guacamole. Guacamole is a fast nutritious snack that can be made in less than 10 minutes. Today I made a big batch of guacamole that I will share with my family later tonight as part of dinner. I encourage you to try making guacamole sometime with your family. — Addie



guac ingredients

Homemade Guacamole


2-3 ripe avocados

Juice of one fresh lime

¼ c. salsa, or to taste

½-1 tsp. garlic salt

4-5 shakes of hot sauce, or to taste

Tortilla chips


Cut avocados in half, remove the pit, and scoop into a bowl. Mix in all of the ingredients (except for the tortilla chips), and mash together with a fork until fairly smooth.

Enjoy with tortilla chips.


Nana’s Notes: Homemade guacamole can be “doctored up” any way you want. I like to add jalapeno and cilantro to mine. Look for nice ripe — but not too ripe — avocados, and enjoy this healthy snack.

  1. This is a great recipe. I am impressed because most kids I know Addie’s age, won’t try guacamole.

  2. Addie has an adventurous culinary palate. But all of her brothers and sisters like it too.The only part that really needs supervision is the cutting of the avocado. They can be kind of tricky.

  3. Looks delicious! Love guac, Kris. My next door neighbor told me the trick to having perfectly ripe avocados: you purchase them when they’re not ripe, pretty hard, then place them in a canister of white flour and in 2 days they’ll be perfect for serving. Works like a charm!
    Addie is just darling!
