Homemade Guacamole

This homemade guacamole is a crowd pleaser! If you have a picnic or a party coming up then I would highly recommend bringing this to share with your friends!

Here’s what you need to make one serving:
1 ripe avocado
Garlic powder (sprinkled to taste)
1/2 tablespoon per avocado of lemon or lime juice (I usually use lemon juice because that’s what I normally have in my fridge)
Red onion
Red bell pepper
Salt (optional)
I always start with mushing the ripe avocado in a bowl until it is smooth. Then I cut up the red onion and the red bell pepper into tiny pieces–the smaller the better in my opinion, but if you like chunky guacamole then cut them into large sizes! I mixed the onion and peppers with the avocado. Then, add the lemon or lime juice in and stir the mixture.
Lastly, I suggest sprinkling the garlic powder to taste because some people love lots of garlic in their guacamole, and some people are planning on kissing someone after they eat the guacamole so it is very subjective.
Regarding the salt, if you are eating your guacamole with salty tortilla chips then you often don’t need to add salt to your guacamole. However, you can add salt if your taste buds tell you too!
That’s all! You can share it with other people or eat it all by yourself. I have done both 🙂

Homemade Vegan Hot Chocolate

I love drinking hot chocolate when it’s snowing outside! Especially with I’m drinking it with fresh popcorn.
This recipe makes 1-2 mugs of hot chocolate. Feel free to double it if you need more!
Here’s what you need to make it:
3 cups of water
1 cup of non-dairy milk
3 tablespoons of pure cocoa
3-5 tablespoons of coconut sugar*
1 dash of vanilla
To start off, put a pot on the stove with three cups of water and the three tablespoons of cocoa on medium heat. Whisk the water and the cocoa until all the cocoa chunks are dissolved in the water.
Gradually add the sugar and continue to whisk the ingredients. Add a dash of vanilla.
After all the sugar is dissolved, then add the non-dairy milk to the pan. Continue to stir the ingredients while the milk gets warm.
Pour in a mug and enjoy!
*NOTE: You can add less sugar if you are trying to cut back on calories. I would recommend adding at least three tablespoons of sugar because the cocoa is bitter.
