When it comes to keto snacks, I love all things dips, and luckily, it’s easy to find plenty of keto options. I generally rotate between keto hummus and salsa, but nothing beats guacamole.

Is guacamole ok on keto? 

Contrary to popular belief, traditional guacamole is keto friendly. The carbs in guacamole are minimal, and it’s what people add to it that piles on the extras. If you look at store-bought guacamole, some brands can pack over 20 grams of carbs per serving.

Why this keto guacamole recipe will be a diet staple-

  • Ready in 5 minutes. Seriously, from prep the plate, this delicious dip takes just 5 minutes to make. 
  • Just 2 grams net carbs. Avocado is packed with fiber and healthy fats, and have very little net carbs. 
  • Easy to customize. You can add your favorite spices, herbs, or mix-ins, like olive oil or feta cheese.

What I love about guacamole is that it’s something everyone can enjoy regardless of what diet you follow. Every single diet can incorporate it, so feel confident serving it at all events, parties, and gatherings!
