Blender Guacamole

Recipe challenge, week twenty-five.

I've been experimenting with the Vitamix lately.  I got this cookbook in the mail and I was intrigued by their guacamole recipe.  It's a really interesting take on guac, because I usually mash the avocado with a potato masher and then add in some pico de gallo because the more flavor the better.

Let it be known that the picture I took looks very little like the picture in the cookbook, which disappointed me.  I was looking forward to some blended guacamole that looked like this:

Oh well.  If I were going to make it again, I would add more lime juice and maybe just a hint of garlic.  It was a bit too garlicky for me. And maybe more juice would've helped it blend.  

That would make sense.

Blender Guacamole
from Vitamix Cookbook

2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and diced
2 roma tomatos, diced (I used 6 grape tomatoes)
4 tablespoons finely diced onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Juice of half a lemon or lime
Sea salt to taste

Add all ingredients to your blend and start it on low, slowly increasing the speed to high.  Blend for about a minute, until desired consistency is reached. 


  1. We have a Vitamix and I love it for smoothies and stuff, never tried guacamole in it before! I might have to try this out sometime!

  2. I think yours looks better than the picture. More chunky = more better.

  3. i have only made guac once and it was... not good. haha. i'll have to try this one!


Comments make my day!
