How to pick the perfect ripe avocado for the best keto guacamole?

To select a ripe avocado, you are after a certain feel and outer appearance.

Look for one that is firm, but has a little bit of give to it when you squeeze it. If the avocado is squishy, it is too ripe. If the avocado is rock hard, it is not ready yet; however, these avocados are great to buy if you are wanting to make guacamole a few days later.

The color of a ripe avocado is a dark, almost blackish green. If the avocado is green; many times, it is not ripe yet.

One trick you can use to tell if an avocado is ready to eat, is to take the button stem off the top. If the flesh underneath is bright avocado green, then it ready to be cut open and used. If that area under the stem is brownish in color, then it is overly ripe and the avocado will probably be brown inside as well.

How to prevent your guacamole from turning brown?

If you plan on eating all of your guacamole in one go, you don’t have to worry about storing it.

Unfortunately, guacamole can oxidize quickly and turn an unappealing brown color. The lime juice in the recipe helps to slow down the oxidation process, but I find that my guac still turns brown after I store it overnight unless I do an extra step to preserve it.

The best method I have used to store guacamole and keep it green is to cover it with a layer of lemon juice or water.

First, pack the guacamole down in an airtight container.

Then add a thin layer of lemon juice or water on top. This creates a barrier between the air and the guacamole to prevent oxidation from occurring. Using the lemon juice provides an additional antioxidant effect to further prevent any browning since it is filled with Vitamin C – a powerful antioxidant.

Next cover with a lid or plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

Next time you reach from your guacamole, pour off the excess water or lemon juice and enjoy!

Keto foods you can pair with guacamole?

  • Pork rinds – These make excellent scoopers for guacamole during snack or game time.
  • Veggies – Try using celery, cauliflower, or sliced cucumber to scoop up your guacamole.
  • Keto tortilla chips – If you are really craving tortilla chips, make some low carb tortilla chips from a low carb tortilla. Cut the tortilla into triangles and fry in avocado oil heated to medium high heat until golden brown.
  • Steak – I love adding a heaping spoonful of guacamole to my steak – especially a flat iron or skirt steak.
  • Eggs– Scrambled eggs or fried eggs with a side of guacamole makes for a delicious breakfast.

  1. This is my first time making guac but I was craving it. I started keto in October and fell off a bit in around Christmas, but I back on it. I made this guacamole to put on my eggs in the morning.

  2. I paired these with your chicken taquitos and added some lemon. It solved my craving for something different on the keto diet.
