Guacamole is one of my absolute favorite ways to get plenty of healthy fats in my diet. This easy fat bomb bacon guacamole is ready in about 15 minutes, requires no food processor, is paleo and keto friendly and a fun twist on a traditional Mexican recipe.
This recipe is what made my cute baby. No joke. I lived on guacamole, kale chips, cashews and a small bit of dark chocolate daily while pregnant. My husband loves the addition of the bacon in this recipe. We honestly eat it with sliced veggies and in butter lettuce boats on the regular for dinner.
I love the addition of lime essential oil in this recipe as it really makes the flavor pop. I only use these therapeutic grade oils, especially for cooking since it’s being ingested.
Will guacamole make you fat?
I know you want to ask. Healthy fats are essential for maintaining well balanced hormones. They help ensure our uptake of fat soluble vitamins, as well as burn fat and slash inflammation. They keep us feeling full longer and prevent us from overeating.
Lime essential oil has had very promising results regarding weight loss. One study, published in 2010, observed lime essential oil both assisting weight loss and preventing weight gain. The study concluded: The data obtained in this study suggested that lime essential oil plays an important role in weight loss and could be useful in the treatment of drug-induced obesity and related diseases.
How long will guacamole last in the fridge?
In my experience, it’s fine the next day, but not any longer. This will keep overnight if covered and a thin layer of olive oil is applied to the top.
One of my favorite things about this recipe is no blender or food processor is required. You can simply smooth and combine with a fork, but I like to use a potato masher. Is that even what those are called?
Why is guacamole extra at Chipolte?
It’s a hormone boosting, beauty promoting super food that makes some darn cute babies, so it must be worth the cost!
