Pomegranate Guacamole

Pomegranates are a powerhouse healing food that can be added to all kinds of recipes to bring more nutrients and flavor. Pomegranate arils provide a fun and surprising burst of sweet juiciness as you crunch into them. They combine beautifully with the flavor and creaminess of the guacamole.

“Pomegranate is a great blood builder, as it strengthens both red and white cell counts. It serves an important role in blood sugar, too, by restoring precious glucose reserves to the liver, so that the liver can release this glucose into the bloodstream as needed. This process in turn protects the adrenal glands—because if you go for several hours without eating and your liver doesn’t have glucose reserves, then your adrenals are forced to pump hormones such as cortisol into your blood to keep you going, leading to overactive adrenal glands and eventual burnout. So if you’re looking for adrenal balance and blood sugar stabilization, turn to pomegranates. Pomegranates’ high-quality glucose also makes them a brain food, helping with focus and concentration.” – Excerpt from Life-Changing Foods. 

Pomegranate Guacamole

Ingredients:

  • 2 large or 3 small avocados
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped red or white onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1-2 tsp fresh finely chopped jalapeño (optional)
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds, more to serve
  • Sea salt, to taste (optional)

Directions:

In a medium-sized bowl, add the pitted and peeled avocados. Mash using a potato masher or a fork until the guacamole is smooth but still has a few bigger chunks. 

Add all the remaining ingredients and mix together gently with a spoon. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed.
