What better way to supercharge guacamole than by adding kale? We asked the kale expert herself, Elise from Kale and Chocolate, to give us her perfect recipe. This recipe is a great replacement for traditional guacamole or creamy dips.


  • 2 to 3 avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ¼ cup (40 g) red onion, chopped
  • ½ clove garlic, chopped
  • ½ jalapeño pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons (2 g) cilantro
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • 4 to 5 large kale leaves, stems and stalk removed, finely chopped


Servings: 6 

Mix together all the ingredients, except for the kale. 
Stir in the finely chopped kale. 
Serve with chips or with sticks of jicama, carrots, red pepper, or use in a salad. 

Notes: If you have a prepared guacamole that you love, add the kale to it. Make sure you massage the kale with some olive oil to soften it before you mix it in. 

Kale is high in iron, vitamin K, antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, and calcium. As you train hard, you need more vitamins and minerals to keep you healthy, and help to repair your muscles. Adding more kale to your diet is a fantastic way to take your game to the next level. The more, the better!
