Pineapple Recipe

I read how pineapple is good for losing weight. I have been trying to lose weight so why not try and create a healthy pineapple recipe? But what can I do to create a healthy pineapple recipe?

 

This Pineapple Pomegranate Guacamole With Bacon has just that in it: Pineapple, Bacon, and Pomegranate! These flavors in the guacamole with a hint of an optional smoke flavor from the bacon make for a yummy guacamole.

 

Homemade Guacamole Recipe

I am addicted to guacamole. So my thought was what if I combine pineapple into a homemade guacamole recipe? I got inspired when a coworker made pomegranate guacamole for a work function.

Keto Guacamole

As I was developing this homemade guacamole, the thought of adding bacon to it came after seeing a keto guacamole. After runing the reipe through a nutrion analizer, I realized guacamole ingredients helps make this a keto guacamole.

 

Guacamole Ingredients

I bounced the idea of Pineapple Pomegranate Guacamole With Bacon off on a friend. He suggested that for the guacamole ingredients, I smoked the avocado first.

Smoking avocado is a great idea for guacamole ingredients, however, I wanted to keep this a simple guacamole recipe.  I will admit I did smoke some avocados for this guacamole recipe. The batch I made with the smoked avocados did have a better flavor than the simple guacamole recipe I made without smoking the avocados.

Bacon Guacamole

So why make this pomegranate guacamole into bacon guacamole? To be honest I was in a bacon phase at the time I created this simple guacamole. I was creating Mushroom Bacon Paprikash {Surprising Bacon Twist}Bacon Taco Dip: Bacon Fiesta To Easy Taco Dip, and Smoked Gouda Cornbread {With Bacon and Green Onion}

 

I was on a huge bacon kick! Bacon makes everything better including pomegranate guacamole! So I accomplished what I set put to do. I created a healthy pineapple recipe with simple guacamole and turned it into yummy bacon guacamole!

Pineapple Pomegranate Guacamole is a simple homemade guacamole. This keto guacamole recipe is not only a healthy pineapple recipe but it is also has added protein with bacon! You will love the added guacamole ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 4 whole avocados (split and peeled (optional smoked))
  • 1 cup white onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 whole Jalapeno chilies (fresh, finely chopped)
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (fresh)
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate seeds ((from 1 pomegranate))
  • 3/4 cup fresh pineapple (diced)
  • 1/4 cup cooked bacon (crumbled (6 strips))
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mash the avocado, a potato masher does work nice for this.
  2. Then add the onions, and jalapeno, continue mashing everything together. You can choose how smooth you like it to be, if you prefer a chunkier guacamole, it fine, that is how long you mash everything together.
  3. Add the lime juice and yogurt and mix it together.
  4. Finally, add the pineapple, bacon, and pomegranate, mix it all together in the guacamole.
  5. Save the “pit” or seed from the avocados, place it in the guacamole, it keeps the avocado thinks it still “whole” and will not brown. Then serve it up with some chips and ENJOY!

Notes

To smoke the avocados:

Before you peel them, pierce the avocado with a fork. If you do not have a smoker, get a large stock pot, put the aluminum foil on the bottom of the pot, add your wood chips, another layer of aluminum foil, Place a small tin pie plate to use as a steamer basket on the top. Put some foil around the lid to keep the smoke from escaping, let your avocados smoke on high heat for about five minutes, then on medium or medium-low heat for another 10-15 minutes. Then, after removing it from the heat, let the avocados sit in the smoke for another 10 minutes or so. Take them out, let them cool, then split, peel, and chop them.
