Creamy & HEALTHY Guacamole!

GUACAMOLE! Nuff said, right? Ha! Yes, normally it is.  However, I’ve decided to share my favorite guacamole recipe with you all!  No lie - I hated guacamole until my best friends sister managed a Chipotle and had me try hers a few years ago (thanks, Paige!!).  Let me tell you...that was the turning point in my life for my guacamole addiction.  The woman knows how to change your taste buds!

Anyway, over the past few years I’ve made guacamole many times and I’m constantly adding ingredients and changing the way I make it.  I have found that creamy guacamole is the best guacamole, although I don’t puree it.  When there are some chunks of avocado still left, the texture is just perfect in my opinion.

So, I’ve made a video showing how I make my guacamole.  This is in fact my first recipe video, and only my second vlog, so there are some mess ups.  I figured there would be, but I wasn’t about to spend money on extra ingredients so that I could keep remaking the guacamole until I made the perfect video ? I am a real person y’all!

Ingredients:

    • 3 avocados
    • 1/2 onion, diced
    • 1/2 lime
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • Fage Total Greek 0% Greek Yogurt
    • cumin
    • sea salt
    • cracked black pepper
    • 1/2 tsp cilantro, chopped for garnishing

Directions:

  • Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium bowl and mash together with a wooden spoon. This will help make your guacamole creamy, with some avocado chunks still left.  Garnish with cilantro, if you like that kinda thing.

One medium avocado is approximately 3 servings. My recipe yields about 9 servings.  The good news = it’s sooo healthy that you can eat more than one serving without feeling guilty!  I entered my recipe into my MyFitnessPal account so you can find the nutritional info below.

Did you know that avocados are not only a source of good fats, but also potassium?  That really makes me excited because I loathe bananas!  Christopher and I have our Google Home in our kitchen which is super helpful when I’m cooking or making a grocery list.  So I asked Google what the difference in potassium is between avocados and bananas.  One medium banana has approximately 422mg of potassium versus one cup of avocado with 708mg!
