Fresh Guacamole Recipe: Fasano Diet Guacamole

This fresh guacamole recipe is the perfect dip to serve for your friends or to enjoy as a snack. Have you ever been to an authentic Mexican restaurant? A couple of years ago I visited one. There they made you fresh guacamole using fresh ingredients right in front of you… it was amazing.

Now I’m not going to pretend like this is an authentic guacamole recipe, I have no jurisdiction to claim that. However, I did make this recipe because people with celiac may find themselves in a situation where they need recipes like this one. A recipe that is full of flavor and no pre-packaged ingredients.

Why Fresh Guacamole?

I mentioned it briefly before, but fresh guacamole brings the dip world to a whole other level. The flavors of the fresh avocado, squeezed lime, cut cilantro, etc. speak to your taste buds in such a delicious way.

Not to mention there is something so satisfying about anything with avocados.

Fasano Diet Guacamole

This fresh guacamole recipe isn’t just here to provide with you some delicious dip. It’s also here for my gluten-free friends who were prescribed the temporary Fasano diet. As such, you might call this Guacamole the Fasano Diet Guacamole.

What is the Fasano Diet?

The Fasano Diet is a very restrictive diet designed to help those with non-responsive celiac recover. It’s also known as the non-responsive celiac diet. It involves avoiding almost anything with a food label. Under the guidance of a dietitian, you reintroduce these foods to see what might be preventing healing.

It is essential that anyone considering the Fasano diet seek the guidance of a celiac specialist to make sure it’s done correctly. If not done correctly, this diet can be harmful.

It could influence eating disorders, disordered eating, malnutrition, nutrient deficiencies, and more.

Why Regular Guacamole Isn’t Safe for the Fasano Diet?

Regular guacamole isn’t safe for the fasano diet because typically it involves a myriad of dried spices. Spices like cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, dried cilantro, cayenne pepper and more. All of which would not be allowed on the Fasano diet. Hence, this guacamole recipe is focused on using only fresh ingredients to flavor it.

What to eat Fasano Guacamole With:

Corn ships are not allowed on the Fasano Diet. However, you can still enjoy this fresh guacamole with fresh vegetables. My favorite vegetables to dip in guacamole include baby carrots and celery.

You might also spread some on top of sweet potato toast or enjoy it in a taco rice bowl.

If you’re not following the Fasano diet, and you’re just here for some delicious flavorful fresh guacamole, then enjoy it with your favorite corn chips!

Fresh Guacamole Recipe Ingredients

This fresh guacamole recipe includes avocados, onion, garlic, cilantro, Roma tomatoes, lime, and salt/pepper. Most guacamoles include finely diced jalapenos and you could add those in too. However, if you’re following the non-responsive celiac diet, the heat of a jalapeno may not be helpful to your healing.

The key to this fresh guacamole recipe is to make sure you buy ripe avocados. According to Love One Today’s Avocado Buying Guide, you want to pick one that is somewhat soft when applying firm yet gentle pressure to it in the palm of your hand. If it’s mushy, it’s too ripe, and if it’s hard as a rock, it’s underripe.
