I love having fun with traditional recipes – and this one is amazing! Adding a little kale to this guacamole recipe is a perfect way to increase your daily intake of leafy greens.


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Rind of 1 lime (finely grated)
  • 1 clove of garlic (minced and let to sit for 5 minutes to activate the Alicin)
  • 5-6 kale stalks (cut into 3 inch lengths)
  • ¼ Red onion (finely diced)
  • 1 jalepeno pepper (optional)
  • Dash sea salt


  • Add all ingredients to a food processor.
  • Blend on high until you reach desired consistency.
  • Transfer to a serving dish, drizzle with avocado oil (I just love this stuff!), garnish with cilantro and serve with red beet slices or your favorite tortilla chips!
