  • 3 avocados ripe
  • 1 1/2 cups pomegranate arils
  • 1 jalapeno add 1/2-whole depending on desired heat
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (1 small lime)
  • 2 tablespoons clementine juice (1 small clementine)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin


  • Slice avocados, and scoop out the flesh into a bowl.
  • Add jalapeño, cilantro, lime and clementine juices, sea salt and cumin, and stir the mixture to cream the avocado. I leave chunks of avocado, but how chunky or smooth is up to you.
  • Taste, and adjust seasonings, if necessary, remembering the heat will intensify as the oils are released from the jalapeño.
  • Add pomegranate arils, and gently mix in.
  • Garnish with more pomegranate arils or cilantro.
  • Serve with sweet potato chips, tortilla chips, or sliced veggies. Also makes a great taco or tostado topper!
