Holy guacamole this dip is GOOD! I love how light and refreshing it is. The fresh mango adds the perfect amount of juicy sweetness to a classic guacamole recipe! My Mom and I couldn’t stop eating it!

All About Avocados

Want a sneak peek of what’s inside without making a cut? Just pop off the stem at the top — a lush, light green color is the sign of a good avocado! 🥑

Check for a softness beneath the skin (this indicates ripeness). 

If your avocado is not quite ready for the dance floor, just pop it in a paper bag with an apple. Seal the bag and wait for about a day — your avocado will be ready to go!

Here’s a quick tutorial on the best way to cut your avocado.

It Takes a Mango To Tango

Here are some pointers for choosing a ripe mango: 

  • The skin should yield slightly to gentle pressure, indicating that the fruit is ripe.
  • Typically, mangos will turn orange, red, or rosy when they are ripe. But don’t rely solely on color. Some mango varieties are different! 
  • Sniff the stem end of the mango. Ripe mangoes will often have a fruity aroma at this end.

And what if your mango hasn’t quite hit its peak? Simply place it in a paper bag at room temperature (see a theme here?!?). Check your mango daily, and soon you’ll have a perfectly ripe, juicy mango.

Want to skip the hassle altogether? Opt for pre-skinned, cut mango at the grocery store. Sometimes you need to press the “easy” button!

Mangoes do more than just sweeten our guacamole. They are brimming with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as fiber. 

Basically a power-packed superfood. 

Mango guacamole isn’t just a tantalizing snack — it’s also a healthful indulgence.

Storing Your Mango Guacamole

Don’t want your delicious dip turning brown and yucky? Try these tips to keep your mango guacamole fresh and vibrant.

Step 1: Scoop your guac into your go-to storage container.

Step 2: Grab some plastic wrap and smush it right on top of the guac. Make sure you’ve gotten rid of any air bubbles.

Step 3: Now comes the weird part. Pour a thin layer of cold water on top. Yeah, it sounds strange, but trust me, it works!

Once you’re ready to dive back into your guacamole goodness, just drain off the water and give it a good stir. There you have it, your guac is still fresh, green, and ready for dipping!
