Your Guacamole Will Stay Green Thanks To These 3 Oils

Ah, guacamole -- it's SO good, but for a limited time only (literally).

You know exactly what I'm referring to if you've ever had guacamole. You're having the time of your life as you're shamelessly stuffing your face with the avocado-y goodness.

You're not able to finish all of it, so you figured you'd save some for later as a midnight snack.

A few hours later, a light bulb goes off in your head as you're brainstorming about what snacks to munch on.

You'd be foolish not to run to the kitchen and grab that leftover guacamole you ~attempted~ to save.

You finally get there in your jammies and all, only to realize that the once deliciously bright green guac is now BROWN as fuck.

YUCK (hey, that rhymes)!

Well, my fellow guacamole lovers, I'm here today to tell you that there is indeed a fix for this miserable issue that continues to ruin our lives.

After all, not all of us are fortunate enough to have avocado trees in our backyards. I'm sure it's worth the investment, though!

So, how does one save guacamole from turning into brown goo?

According to PureWow, the answer lies in the hands of several oils that can be applied across the top of the guac before covering it with plastic wrap and placing it in the refrigerator.

All you have to do is get yourself some coconut oil, olive oil, or vegetable oil spray. Once you've acquired the goods, spray some across the top of your precious guacamole and cover it with plastic wrap.

At that point, you will have confirmed your guac a lifespan of about 24 hours.

That process alone will eliminate the oxidation that makes your guacamole brown, gross and weird.

Say hello to more green guac and goodbye to constantly asking yourself, "WTF happened to my baby?!"
