Fruitarian Recipe: Mexican Guacamole

Guacamole is a staple in Latin South-American cuisine and offers great nutritional benefits and calories on a fruit-based diet (except if you are opting for low-fat). Although the recipe is not tropical (read about the role of tropical fruits here) but contains nightshades (tomatoes) and the fatty fruit avocado, it is certainly also an important go-to for many fruit-based people.

Note: Our recipes are all frugivorous, but can be turned into a strictly fruitarian meal, by leaving out everything that is not truly a fruit!

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 small, ripe tomato, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (optional) or alternatively, you can use blended or finely chopped celery
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped (optional, not fruitarian)


  1. Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. Scoop out the flesh into a bowl and mash it with a fork until it reaches your desired consistency.
  2. Add the tomatoes and other desired ingredients to the mashed avocadoes
  3. Squeeze the juice of one lime over the mixture and stir well to combine.
  4. Add the chopped cilantro and season according to your taste. Mix everything together until well incorporated.
  5. Serve the guacamole with cucumber, tomatoes, or other veggie dips or as a condiment with your favorite dishes.
