If you’ve been looking for the perfect healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free, low oxalate snack, you are in luck!
Guacamole is one of my all-time favorite things to eat, and I especially love it for its versatility. It’s perfect for eating right out of the bowl, scooping up with any of your favorite veggies, or putting a spoonful or two on top of your lunch or dinner to add a little spice to your life.
If you are wondering how in the world guacamole can be low in oxalate, the answer is it definitely can, but you have to watch for a couple of details. Depending on which resource you use to get your oxalate values, avocados can be anywhere from low oxalate to very high oxalate.
I follow the Trying Low Oxalates list, so I make sure I buy Hass avocados, and wait until they are just to the point where if they get any more ripe they won’t be edible. The more ripe the avocado is, the less oxalates it will have. If you want, add some diced cucumber to the recipe for a little bit of crunch, or some cayenne pepper for a little extra flavor and an extra kick!
