behind the scenes

Transforming a classic into Festive Guacamole

All day eating seems to be fully justified during Christmas. At no other time of year is it socially acceptable to have had at least 3 meals by 10am but for some reason, around Christmas, that even seems like you might have been holding back a little!

It’s for this reason that crisps and dips reign supreme at this time of year; there is no food combination more versatile that you can take with you from morning to night as a fully appropriate snack, and let’s be honest, even dinner –there’s no judgement here!

So, we’ve taken the classic guacamole and added a little Jolly Festive spin to give you the ever creatively named…Festive Guacamole!

Guacamole ingredients

While we may not win any awards in the naming stakes, we know that this ticks all the flavor and texture boxes.

The sharpness from the lime, the crunch from the pomegranate jewels and the smooth creamy goat’s cheese, it’s all we could want from a dip!

Plus, it truly is the easiest thing to put together!
