Recipe: Basil Guacamole

If you have never thought about putting fresh basil herbs with avocado before, we can attest that you're missing out on the freshest, most summery guacamole yet!

Both basil and avocados are incredibly versatile, and together the flavour of the combination turns out to be the complete opposite of traditional guacamole—it's amazing and absolutely worth trying!

It doesn't get much easier with only soft avocados, sweet basil leaves, and a juicy tomato as the main stars of this recipe—simple, healthy, and a delicious addition as a dip to any meal. You won’t be able to resist digging in with a spoon or a bag of chips, and then it's all gone.
