Guacamole with mango and pomegranate

You may remember from a recent post that my family goes crazy for fruity guacamole. That’s why, when I hosted an #iloveavocados live party with Avocados From Mexico, I wanted to make another version of my fruity guacamole with one of my favorite fruits: Mango. I love to experiment with lots of different sweet and savory guacamoles and this version with mango, pomegranate seeds, red onion and serrano chile is one of my absolute favorit

guacamole with mango and pomegranateMy guests practically licked the bowl clean and there may have been some arguing over who got the last scoop. Another sure sign that the recipe was a success: Some of the guests sent tweets or posted on Facebook the next day that they wished they could have some more!

Sometimes I like to add a clove or two of garlic to this recipe to make it a little more savory. You can also split the batch in half and put garlic in one portion and none in the other to decide which you like better. Whichever way you choose, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with this fruity guacamole recipe. As with most guacamole recipes, this one is vegetarian and vegan-friendly, and gluten-free too.
