This food favorite gets a Bulletproof® makeover with Dave Asprey.

Many raising a margarita tonight are likely unaware of why Cinco de Mayo is a day of celebration (it commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French at the battle of Puebla in 1862)—but we guacamole for any reason. Lucky for 24Life, we partnered with Bulletproof® founder and CEO Dave Asprey, for a guacamole recipe that delivers great taste and support your brain health (margarita aside!).

Bulletproof® Guacamole

  • Four large ripe Haas avocados, peeled
  • 2-4 T Brain Octane or Upgraded XCT Oil (it will taste horrible if you use coconut oil, and these oils are 18 times or 6 times more concentrated than coconut oil, with no flavor so the natural avocado flavor explodes)
  • 2 teaspoons or more of Himalayan salt (to taste)
  • 1 T dried organic oregano
  • 1-3 tsp of apple cider vinegar (to taste)

Blend everything with a hand blender until it is very creamy. Stir in chopped cilantro and jalapeños (if you tolerate nightshades) or other herbs of your choice.

The end result is like guacamole that feeds you on all levels. The flavor is much more intense because of the effect of the esters from the Brain Octane on your taste buds. You won’t miss the onions and garlic common in most recipes. (These medical herbs taste good but have negative effects on your performance, unless you’re sick.)

Five other ways to serve Bulletproof® Guacamole

  1. Enjoy with breakfast—great with any style of eggs or fresh crisp veggies or on crisp toast or healthy crackers.
  2. Serve as stand-alone snack or lunch—Dave has been known to eat a bowl of it by itself for lunch.
  3. On a salad—almost any green salad gets better with a dollop of delicious guacamole to add texture and dressing
  4. On top of sushi—substitute guacamole instead of soy sauce, full of flavor, less salt
  5. On a burger or sandwich—the perfect condiment substitution that delivers on nutrient density.
