And now for something a bit unexpected. You probably already know that pomegranate arils are not only loaded with fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium but they are also bursting with antioxidant superpowers. What you might not know is that the sweet crunchy contrast of these delicious gems alongside a zesty guacamole is something out of this world!
2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup pomegranate arils
2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp jalapeno, minced
Juice of 1/2 a lime
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp sea salt
In a mixing bowl combine avocados, cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice, cumin and sea salt. Use a fork to mash to desired consistency (smooth or chunky).
Stir in pomegranate arils and serve with tortilla or plantain chips.
