You want to be sure that your Avocados are ripe!

I recommend buying a bag of avocados at least a few days before you plan to use this recipe. If your bag has 5-6 avocados, take 2-3 out and leave them with your other fruits on the counter.

If you leave them near bananas and apples, this can help to make them ripen faster.

When you cut into the avocado there shouldn’t be much resistance when the knife slices in. If you’re noticing it’s tough to cut in (think cutting a raw potato) then it’s not ready yet.

Corn on the Cob

Since it’s the summer, I like to use fresh corn on the cob for this recipe. It’s both sweet and inexpensive!

You should be able to pick some up for as little as $0.50 per cob.


I love freshly squeezed limes, there’s something about that fresh tangy flavour that adds so much to this recipe!


Fresh on the vine tomatoes are best for this recipe. With 5-6 tomatoes typically on each vine from the grocery store, you can make this recipe a few times with just a few ingredients.

Typically if you’re buying tomatoes from the grocery store, they’re going to be ripe enough for this recipe. So don’t worry too much about whether they’re ready or not.

Corn on the Cob

You can substitute corn on the cob for canned or frozen corn. Both will have a nice sweet flavour.

For frozen corn I would thaw it in the microwave with water. Once it’s cooked, drain the water and allow it to cool down just like you would with the corn on the cob.

If you’re using canned corn, keep it room temperature and be sure that you drain the liquid. You don’t want to add too much extra moisture to this recipe.

I would stick with just regular corn and not creamed corn as that may add a bit of an odd flavour to the guacamole.

You can use concentrated lime juice for this recipe and it will have the same flavour.

It’s not always easy to keep limes on hand all the time, so having a bottle of lime juice in the fridge is a great substitute.

Storage Instructions

Avocados are one of those famous fruits that browns INCREDIBLY fast, and this doesn’t change when it’s in a guacamole dish.

I recommend serving this right away (it only takes ten minutes to make).

If you do need to store it, I would recommend putting it into an air tight glass container right when you finish making it and storing it in the fridge.

When you are ready to serve, simply take it out and give it a quick stir and it should be ready to go!

It will stay good in the fridge for at most two days. I don’t recommend keeping it beyond that.

What to Serve With

You can serve this guacamole in a number of ways including:

  • Pour over a chicken breast for a sweet sauce on your dinner.
  • Snack on as a dip with tortilla chips.
  • Pour on top of a plain rice cake for a more filling carbohydrate and fibre rich snack. Smother the rice cake with a little bit of hummus first to have a well rounded protein snack.
  • You can eat it on it’s own as well!

Is Guacamole Healthy?

This recipe gets The Dietitian Prescription stamp of approval!

Avocados are rich in fibre that helps to reduce cholesterol, great for heart health, and helps with bowel regularity.

Tomatoes have a property called Lycopene in them that gives the rich and vibrant red colour. Lycopene is a rich antioxidant that helps with anti-cancer agents in the body.

This recipe is great as an addition to lunch, dinner or snacks to make a healthier and more nourished body.

  • 1 Boiling Pot For corn on the cob
  • 1 Cutting Board
  • 1 Sharp Knife


  • 1 Medium Avocado Ensure it's ripe!
  • 1 Medium Tomato I use on the vine tomatoes, but any type will work.
  • 1 Large Corn on the Cob Can use canned corn as well.
  • 1 Medium Lime You can also use lime juice!


  • Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. When it starts to boil add the corn on the cob. Allow to boil for approximately 10 minutes.
  • While the corn is boiling, chop up the avocado and tomatoes into small pieces. Some guacamole recipes will call for it to be blended, I prefer a chunkier guacamole. This is up to your preference.
  • Once the corn is boiled, drain the water and allow the corn to cool. I throw it into the freezer for about 5 minutes. If you add it to your guacamole mixture hot, it has a weird warm flavour.
  • After 5 minutes, take the corn out of the freezer and slice it down the side to 'shave' the corn off the cob.
  • Mix all your ingredients into a bowl, slice your lime in half and squeeze all the juice on top of your mixture. If you're using concentrated lime juice, add about 2 tablespoons, taste, and add more if you want a zestier flavour.
