Dairy-free (vegan) Guacomole that doesn’t go brown? Yesss!

Yup, that’s right. Here’s a recipe for amazing vegan guacomole that keeps for days in the fridge and stays fresh, green and delicious! I’ve never found a store-bought version that comes close in flavour to homemade – and this recipe is sooo quick and easy!

But this guac has lemon juice, you might say – so that’s why it doesnt go brown… Well, in my experience, unless I use a TON of lemon juice, my guac still browns after an hour or so. The secret here? It’s all in the yoghurt…

If you have digestive issues (and/or the Rosacea – facial redness – that often accompanies them), you might find that you can’t tolerate spicy foods. In this case, I’d omit the chilli. I never add very much chilli to my vegan guacomole for this very reason – and it still tastes amazing! Or you could go for a few Ancho chilli flakes, which have a fruity, milder kick.


  • 1 large avocado
  • 2tbsp apple cider vinegar (I like Braggs ‘with the mother’ best)
  • 1/2 cup plain almond yoghurt
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 small pack (30g) fresh coriander (cilantro)
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 garlic clove, very finely chopped
  • 1 small chilli, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt (or sea salt)


  1. Place the avo flesh in a large bowl and mash roughly with a fork.
  2. Add the apple cider vinegar (lemon juice will also work), yoghurt, tomatoes, coriander (finely chopped – stalks and all – they add a nice crunch and extra fibre!). Give the mixture a stir
  3. Add the red onion, garlic and chilli (if using) and salt, and mix thoroughly.
  4. Et voila! Tasty guac that stays fresh and green.

This vegan guacomole is delish with plain tortilla chips while watching Queer Eye on Netflix – or is that just me? 🙂
