Everyone should know how to make the perfect Guacamole! This easy keto-friendly salad that goes great as a side with barbecue meat. This recipe is one of the many low-carb recipes in our KetoDiet App and I use it as an ingredient in several other keto recipes.

It's a great way to include avocados into your diet. Avocados are not only high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and fibre but they are exceptionally high in potassium which is an important electrolyte that will help you beat keto-flu.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

This would be great w bacon but all the bacon in the grocery store has sugar and other additives. Where do you get bacon without additives?


Most of the bacon where I live (UK) has no sugar added but I think this is not always the case. I get mine from a local grocery store and from my farmer.


I googled for "keto guacamole" and your recipe came in second. Honestly, it should come in first, because both your recipe and your page are much better.
You did some amazing job with this site, Martina. I cannot say how many Keto recipes I look for and I end up mostly with those from your "blog".


Thank you so much, Cristi, I appreciate your kind words!


when you weigh the avocado do you include the pit and skin? Or whole thing?


Hi Jackie, all weights are per edible parts (no skin and pit) unless stated otherwise.


What is the calorie total for the batch and you state "per serving" but how many servings per batch? Thanks, Judy


Hi Judy, recipe makes 4 servings (see "Ingredients") - if you need calories / carbs etc. per the whole batch, it will be times 4 (e.g. 724 kcal).


Love love love guacamole! I make my own version with parsley instead of cilantro. I know, I just don't like cilantro..... I always mash mine completely but this looks like a better alternative. I like the sound of the chunky texture 😊


I think people either love or hate cilantro. Haven't tried parsley but may give it a go next time 😊


Funny, my mom doesn't like it either.  I thought maybe she was just weird, but I guess she is not alone!  😊


I find for me that Cilantro tastes bitter and weed like.  I just can't stand it.  Sad thing is that is about the only herb I grew successfully this summer.
