Goji & Mango Guacamole

Even if you're a guac purist, you'll love this mango guacamole. Sweet goji berries, mango & lime cut through the avocado, making for a light, fresh dip.

Goji & Mango Guacamole

Hi everyone, Jack here again. Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner and you know what that means? Dip! Even though I’m not traditionally in love with avocado, I love the way Jeanine makes guacamole, and plus, nothing says “go team” like go-ji, right? Right?

Now you may be thinking “oh, Jeanine has Jack writing this because he’s a football man or something.” Well, I have to admit, team sports are not my thing. Three things that ARE my thing, and the reasons I’m manning this post, are Super Bowl parties, food dipped in other food, and goji puns.

This mango guacamole is as stealthily healthy as a Super Bowl snack gets. The goji berries are a bit of a secret weapon here, as they plump up and become really tangy and sweet. Along with the mango and lime, they also really cut through the thickness of the avocado, so everything still feels light. Plus, the goji berries help to turn your Super Bowl snack into a Super Bowl super food.

Love those puns.

We love this fun, fresh mango guacamole for game days or summer cookouts. It's easy to make, vegan, and gluten-free.

    Hej hej from Sweden, one of my favorite dips is guacamole. I have never tried it with goji. How does it taste? Sweet, Sour? Thanks for your comments in advance. Happy cooking.

  4. I will most likely be making this for the super bowl! Thank you so much for sharing!

  5. What an unique and interesting twist on guacamole. I’ve never cooked with Goji berries before but they sure do add a pretty pop of red to this already colorful appetizer.

    The colour of this alone makes me want to eat it! I haven’t had a goji berry in years but adding them to a water before the salsa so they plump up a bit is a great idea. Lovely recipe!
