From now until the end of September you can enter the Simple Math Guacamole sweepstakes to win cash or guacamole prizes. They also gave me the chance to try out their simple math guacamole as well as some extra guacamole mixes to give away.
To make the guac, I just had to mash up a slimcado and add the guacamole mix—couldn’t have been simpler. I added a little lemon juice to brighten up the flavor even though the mix has lemon juice powder in it; I think it really helped make it taste fresh. If you added the lemon juice and some freshly chopped cilantro you could easily pass it off as homemade at any party.
The ingredients in the guacamole mix aren’t quite as clean as if you made the guacamole yourself, but for a prepared food mix they aren’t too shabby. I also loved the idea of not having to buy a bunch of different flavors and spices I know I’d only use for one recipe.
The Florida avocado has less fat and calories than a Hass avocado; because of this, the flavor is less rich and slightly bitter. I couldn’t see myself cutting a slice and putting it on top of salad to eat raw, but mixed with other ingredients in a recipe I couldn’t taste the difference between a slimcado and a hass avocado. The Florida avocadoes also don’t darken as they turn ripe so the ones you see in the photos are actually at their peak of ripeness.
