Super Quick Guacamole or Avocado Spread

I use avocadoes for a lot of things: sandwiches, homemade beauty care (it’s the best facial ingredient ever) and more. But, most people know avocadoes as the main ingredient in guacamole. In fact, some people (I’ve heard them say) confuse avocadoes with guacamole- in other words, they don’t really realize the main ingredient in guacamole is actually a fruit by another name…

Ah yes, botanically an avocado is a fruit–packed with wonderful, healthy oils. I love them in the winter and right now they are so inexpensive (the small ones are going for 10 for $2.00). They’re also immediately ready for a nice bowl of guacamole, even if you don’t have cilantro or jalapeño.

Simple. Fresh. Absolutely halal.

Super Quick Guacamole or Avocado Spread

Serves 1-2


2-3 small avocados

Sea salt, to taste

Juice of 1/2 lime or 1/4  lemon

2 tablespoons cilantro 

1 jalapeño or serrano pepper, very thinly sliced and diced (if you have it)


  1. Peel and remove the thick outer skin of the avocado. Remove the pit and scoop out the flesh. Place in a bowl and add salt.
  2. Mash well, then add the citrus juice and any other ingredients you want at this point. Mix well.

Enjoy with chips, toasted pita or on a sandwich as a spread.

Bismillah and Buen Provecho!

    Years ago I went to a midwifery practice where one of the assistants was from the Caribbean. She said that when she moved to the US she was surprised to see people eating avocadoes as a savory item because where she was from they eat them for dessert with a dusting of powdered sugar!
