Rena says, “Guacamole is by far my most favorite way to eat an avocado! This recipe shows how easy it is to sneak in those healthy greens without anyone being the wiser. The healthy fats, fiber and protein make this a balanced, satisfying snack.”

Servings: 2 1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 3 avocados, peeled, pitted, pits set aside
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped massaged kale
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 3/4 tsp. salt (recommend ground Himalayan rock salt)
  • 1/2 tsp. SuperLeaf™ Moringa powder
  • Generous grinding of black pepper

Instructions

  • Using a mortar and pestle or mixing dish, add in avocados. Mash with pestle or fork until desired consistency. 
  • Add in salt and Moringa powder. Mix well. Add the remaining ingredients and combine well. 
  • Garnish with a few cilantro leaves.
  • Enjoy. 

Bonus Tip: Keep the avocado pits immersed in the guacamole to help maintain its freshness, especially if you’re making this dish in advance. Add the pits back in before garnishing with cilantro.
