2-3 ripe avocados
1/2 lime, juiced
2 -3 green onions, chopped
1-2 Tbsp cilantro (coriander), chopped
1 tsp spirulina powder
1/2 medium tomato, diced

Halve avocados, take the pits out (keep 1 or 2 pits on the side). In a mortar, put cilantro, salt and lime juice and grind it.
Add avocados, spirulina powder and mix well. Add hot pepper to taste, tomato and chopped green onions.
When your guacamole mix is done, pour it in a container and dip one or 2 avocado pits in it (to preserve it from oxidation – turning black).
Cover with plastic foil to further avoid oxidation and refrigerate, may add a few onion slices on the top of guacamole to prevent from turning black.
