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!
