Nothing brings as much joy in the kitchen than a perfectly ripened avocado. I mean that moment when you cut into it and see the beautiful, soft green fruit. You see the color and know the texture is just right. It makes me think of all those little avocado emojis and images around the internet – avocados with happy faces, dancing and smiling. Great! That is exactly how this simple recipe starts.

Avocado is a perfect food. It is super low in carbs, just 2 net carbs per 100 grams, and is loaded with fiber.

Your guests should always catch the vibe you cooked with. Your mood and intentions go into the food and projects later in the people who eat it. It is super important to cook with love and a clean mind. When you arrange these Guacamole Bites, I know you will be smiling and thinking about how cute and beautiful they are. Taking its place one by one on a platter, decorated with bright juicy tomato halves, parsley, and freshly ground black pepper. I like to add parsley. There are two common types of parsley, flat and curly leaf. Italian parsley has the flat leaves and the more common parsley has curly leaves. The Italian one is softer and some might say has more flavor, but the other one looks more playful and is often used for garnish. It holds its shape and doesn’t get wilted.

All that’s left is a perfect cracker. To be honest, just pick your favorite one. Those bites at the party go so fast, the cracker won’t have time to get mushy. Classic round crackers are perfect for this recipe. I also like the ones made out of seeds. They are usually gluten-free and taste perfect with avocado. Avocados are extremely versatile. They can be prepared raw, puréed, baked or fried.

How to tell when an avocado is ready:

A bright green avocado with hard skin is not ready. It does not yield to gentle pressure and will need 4-5 days to fully ripen. The next stage is when the avocado has gone from green to dark green, a greenish-purple color. It has become a little softer but still will not yield to pressure. It is often difficult to remove the seed and to mash. It still needs another day or two before it’s ready. In the next day or two, you want to look at the color as well as how it yields to pressure. The color should be even, a dark purple, and the flesh firm, but it should give when gently squeezed. It should not be mushy. It’s best at this point to put it in the refrigerator if you don’t plan to eat it in the next day or two. A black-skinned avocado with dents and what feel like air pockets under the skin is overripe. It will feel very mushy and the flesh will have brown to black marks.

An avocado is a perfect food. It is super low in carbs, just 2 net carbs per 100 grams, and is loaded with fiber. It can be eaten raw, puréed, baked, or fried. It has more potassium than a banana and is loaded with monounsaturated fats for good heart health. Eating bananas regularly can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
