There are a few different ways to get a smooth and creamy homemade guacamole and here is one way which uses mayonnaise. You will notice that this recipe calls for just a small amount of mayonnaise, just three tablespoons, which is not enough to change the taste. It just adds a bit of creamy texture. 

For a vegan creamy homemade guacamole, use an egg-free vegan mayonnaise. And, along with being fresh, homemade and easy to prepare, all of the ingredients in this guacamole recipe are also gluten-free, so this can be a gluten-free vegan recipe if needed as well.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Place the ripe avocados in a medium-sized bowl. Add the lime juice or lemon juice and mash the avocado and the lemon or lime juice together with a fork until the avocado is completely smooth. You can also use a mortar and a pestle for this if you happen to have one.

  • A great way to prevent avocados from going brown is to blanch the fruit whole before cutting it. Once the fruit is cut, its flesh can be exposed to air for several hours without significant browning.
