The calories in this guacamole recipe are meant as a rough guide.
They have been counted on 250g of avocado flesh and are based on one serving of four.
The lemon in the avocado will also help to prevent your guacamole from going brown, so this, along with the stone and the plastic cover should ensure your guacamole stays green.
