Easy Creamy Guacamole (DF + GF)

Jump to Recipe

Who else could eat guacamole everyday? I love avocados, and guacamole is the icing on the cake of avocado stardom. This recipe has been my GO TO for years and now you get to make this amazing recipe.

Seriously though, every since I created this recipe years ago, I have never made another. It’s creamy – yet dairy free. It’s the perfect consistency for spreading on a tortilla or eating on a chip. Don’t forget it is also the perfect complement for your taco bowl!

Ingredients in Creamy Guacamole

You don’t need that many ingredients – in fact this recipe only has 8 ingredients (and 2 of those are salt and pepper!)

  • Avocado
  • Cilantro
  • Red Onion
  • Jalapeño
  • Lime Juice
  • Cumin
  • Salt
  • Pepper

The ingredient list may be short, but the recipe is full of taste!

A must have for this recipe is a food processor. I have made guacamole many other ways, including just mashing your guac with a fork. This does not produce a creamy guacamole which is desired for this recipe. You need a food processor. I repeat this is only way to achieve the creamy state!

How to Serve Fresh Guacamole

There are so many ways to enjoy guacamole! I love making a big batch every week to have on hand for veggie bowl combinations. It can serve as your oil free whole food dressing.

This is also great spread on a crisp tortilla or atop a quesadilla. I love it in a taco bowl or atop our layered cheesy taco salad bake. It’s the perfect side to any of the best taco recipes out there as found here.

Don’t forget the standard chips and salsa combo either! It’s also perfect for that and can be a great appetizer to take to your next summer BBQ.

If you really want to take this recipe up a notch, serve it alongside our simple homemade tortilla chips – this is how our family LOVES to eat it!
