I’ve made countless variations of guacamole; traditional, chunky, spicy… you name it, I’ve made them all! Whipped guacamole, yes whipped, has become my most recent avocado obsession!
Why I love it…
• It’s super creamy
• Easy to make
• Loaded with healthy fats
• Takes great with just about anything!
• Few simple ingredients
• Minimal kitchen tools
• Minimal clean up
As you can tell, there’s a lot to love about these easy peasy guac.
The story behind this tasty dip is short and sweet; it was discovered by accident HA! I had a bunch of ripe avocados that all needed to be used, my fridge was a bit bare, and it was the end of a long work day with little energy to spare.
Without hesitation, I scooped the ripened avocados into my blender, squeezed in some lemon juice, sprinkled in a few seasonings, and let the blender do the work. In less than a minute I had a beautifully whipped gauc-like dip. Who knew an effortless attempt could create something so freakin delicious!
The following week I bought a big bag of avocados just to test my luck at a second attempt in making “whipped” guac. The results? Just as tasty as the first attempt. I was on to something, something super easy and tasty.
Since then, I’ve made this beyond simple recipe many times. It’s perfect for those lazy tortilla chips and dip snack nights or those last minute get together snack ideas.

Before we get started, there are a few key things to making this whipped guac…
Key tips to making whipped guac…
- The riper the avocados the better
- Use medium-large avocados not the super tiny avocados
- Go for an organic lemon or lime; it’s ok if it’s small, as long as it feels a bit soft to squeeze (this means it’s juicy on the inside)
- Use organic garlic or garlic powder, and less of it (organic garlic in my opinion is more potent)
- Keep one or two of the avocado seeds on the side and add them in your dip if you’re storing to eat later (keeps it from turning really dark brown)
- 4 medium-large ripe avocados
- 1 organic lemon or 3 limes juiced
- 1 tsp organic garlic powder (or 1 crushed garlic
- 1/2 tsp organic onion powder
- 1 tsp fine pink Himalayan salt
- 1/2 tsp organic ground black pepper
- punch smoked paprika optional
- Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend on medium for 20-30 seconds.
- Taste test and add more lemon/lime juice, salt, and pepper if desired.
- With a rubber spatula, transfer to a serving bowl and enjoy!
- Last 1-2 days in the fridge
- Serve immediately for best results
- Fold in a diced tomato and/or onion if you’re craving more of a chunky guac version
- This guac is more zesty then spicy. If you want to heat things up, add in a bit of jalapeno pepper to the blender
- This recipe does not work well with under-ripe avocados, make sure your avocados are soft
