Fruity Guacamole Recipe

If you’re sick and tired of the regular guacamole, well, that is not a problem. Here’s a unique and creative recipe for you to try. This is perfect to be dished up for special occasions including Yuletide season, Thanksgiving or even for the National Guacamole Day, September 16!  

The recipe ends up into a fruity guacamole which is made up of fleshy sweet mangoes, vibrant red pomegranate seeds, bright green cilantro and of course, our ultimate favorite, avocados! The combination is amazing. I swear, you’ll forget your name once you’ve tasted it! This is an extraordinary guacamole indeed which is obviously very nutritious too.

This recipe can be completed in just 15 minutes (chilling time not included)

  •   4 ripe avocados (2 pounds total)
  •  1 cup finely chopped white onion
  •  2 fresh serrano chilies, finely chopped (2 tablespoons), including seeds
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, or to taste
  •  3/4 cup pomegranate seeds (from 1 pomegranate)
  •   3/4 cup diced peeled mango
  •   1/2 cup chopped cilantro


Cut avocados into halves, remove seed and then peel. With a fork or a potato masher, roughly mash avocados in a big bowl. Add onion, chilies, 1/4 cup lime juice, and 1 1/4 teaspoons salt. 

Stir well to combine and then stir in pomegranate seeds, mango, and cilantro. Sprinkle with salt and extra lime juice. Mix guacamole until smooth and even.  Serve with plantain or tortilla chips.

For best results, cover the surface of the bowl containing the guacamole with parchment paper or plastic wrap. Chill inside the fridge for 4 hours. Take out from fridge and cool to room temperature. Give a quick stir and then serve!

With the freshness and great flavors of the ingredients, I’m quite sure this guacamole is going to be a big hit to any guest you’ll have at home. It’s hard not to crave for more of it. In fact, this recipe is already proven and tested with several people commenting positively and rating it as almost perfect!
