There is also a yummy recipe for guacamole... one of my favourite dips!

Homemade guacamole

3 avocados – peeled, stones removed and mashed
1 lime – juiced
1 small handful of fresh coriander (optional)
2 tomatoes – diced
1 clove of garlic
2 teaspoons of yogurt
A pinch of salt and black pepper
A pinch of paprika

Method

In a bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice and salt and pepper. Then mix in the yogurt, stirring through well. Add the coriander, cayenne pepper and garlic. Stir in the tomatoes gently.

My favourite snack is chopped carrots and celery sticks dipped in guacamole or for a healthy breakfast try guacamole on toast with a poached egg on top – delicious!!

Tip – if you are not going to eating the guacamole for a while, leave the stone in the mixture till ready to serve. It helps prevent the guacamole from browning.
