Spirulina Guacamole

spirulina guacamole

I make dips pretty much on a weekly basis. I like to make them at the weekend to serve as an appetiser before our regular family get togethers & I tend to make a lot so that I can enjoy them as an easy snack or addition to nourish bowls, accompaniment to falafel, etc.. during the week. I've mentioned previously that because I make dips so regularly, I like to switch up the flavours to keep things interesting. I was inspired to create more recipes using spirulina, a "superfood" algae renowned for its numerous health benefits so decided to incorporate it into a dip- & the resulting vibrant colour was certainly a talking point at the week's family gathering! Personally, I like the taste of seaweed (which spirulina is reminiscent of) but if you're not a fan (or perhaps if you are trying for the first time) and still want to obtain some of the benefits, simply reduce to 1- 1 &1/2 tsp spirulina powder.

Three great health benefits: helps support the body's detoxification process, promotes healthy skin, boosts immunity

Makes 1 bowl

2 ripe avocados
2 tsp spirulina powder
1 red chilli (de-seed if you wish to reduce the heat)
1 clove garlic
Juice of a lemon
Handful of coriander
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

1) Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and whizz until combined and creamy.
