Just when you thought guac couldn't get any better, my Greek Yogurt Guacamole recipe will sweep in and steal your heart!
Hello, avocado loving friends!
So first... about the avocado emoji. I don't have it on my phone yet! I keep seeing you guys post it and I feel like I'm seriously missing out on something. I need to get to the bottom on that!
Second... about guacamole. I could basically eat it daily, on the repeat and not get sick of it. It's just one of those foods that makes me happy. Raise your hand if you feel the same way!
NOW... what if I told you I found a way to improve guacamole's creamy taste AND make it even more nutritious? I KNOW! It's ok if you want to be my BFF forever now 🙂
My Greek Yogurt Guacamole recipe magically makes everyone favorite table side dip even creamier more protein packed.
The secret is (no surprise here!) in the greek yogurt. Plain greek yogurt is such a powerhouse food that packs a lot of protein. As someone who doesn't eat meat (only seafood) I am always looking for sneaky ways to get more protein in my diet and this is it.
The greek yogurt cuts back on just a little of the calorie heavy avocado and replaces it with probiotics and protein, making the entire dish a little more well rounded.
You still get all the avocado-yyyy goodness... but with an added lush creaminess. My Greek Yogurt Avocado Guacamole recipe is a surprising and welcome twist to your old favorite.
This is one perfectly scoopable dip or spread to add to your weekend get-together or that big ole' Super Bowl game just around the corner.
Speaking of superbowl and avocado... here's a fun fact--->
139 MILLION pounds of avocado are eaten Super Bowl Sunday.
So basically you are just doing your duty by trying this. 🙂
I'll be using this recipe to create Thursday's recipe... Healthy Potato Skins... so make sure to stop back by this week for more great Super Bowl food ideas.
This Greek Yogurt Guacamole recipe is one that will totally win you over! Give it a try and let me know what you think.

How much avocado do you eat?
Do you watch the Super Bowl?
*Raises hand!!!* I LOOOOVE me some guacamole. Sounds like a great snack =)
"It’s ok if you want to be my BFF forever now" pretty much - you're super adorable and nice and awesome!
haha! Too bad we don't live on the same coast!
What a creative twist! This looks awesome.
Love the addition of greek yogurt! We use to do that with avocado all the time when I use to eat dairy. It's one of my husbands favorites for topping nachos and taco salad. Happy Meatless Monday, thank you for linking up with us.
Thanks so much Sarah! It's so good!
I love and adore avocados as well as greek yogurt, so you know I'm all over this recipe! 😀 I can't believe 139 million pounds get eaten(!?!?!?!?!)!
So much!! Hope you enjoy this.
I love all of this. My daughter (of all people) loves guacamole! And I have avocados right now. I'll have to give this a try this weekend. 🙂
Awwwww really??? That's sooo cute! Hope you enjoy the recipe! Let me know what you think!
Oooh what a yummy way to change up guac!! Looks delicious!

What a great idea! I love guacamole and have made it countless times, but never with added yogurt. A perfect Super Bowl party recipe!
Thanks Kate! It's really good! Hope you get a chance to try it.
Jen @ pretty little grub says
I never would have thought of this but it's such a great idea! Can't wait to make it.
Let me know how you like it!
Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine says
Perfect for swapping some vegan yogurt!
Totally! Nice and easy swap too!
Kristy from Southern In Law says
We always use greek yogurt in our guac and whilst Jesse isn't a greek yogurt fan, he LOVES it!
yay! I'll call that a greek yogurt victory!
Wendy@Taking the Long Way Home says
You had me at guacamole! It's my favorite condiment.
Me too! Soooo good!
Deborah @ Confessions of a mother runner says
everything and anything avocado works in my book! Love this combo
Me too! Thanks Deborah!
Oh yes, this looks utterly delightful. Combining avocado with Greek yoghurt has got to be good. I'm an avocado enthusiast for sure, but it seems everyone is these days 😉
They are pretty popular... for good reason!
WOAH that is an astonishing number of avocados! It was interesting, because 3 years ago I was in Uganda on the Super Bowl, and their avocadoes look like mangos on the outside. I once cut into one thinking it was a mango, but it was definitely an avocado. Greek yogurt sounds like it would make a super creamy dip.
Fascinating! Why were you in Uganda?
Mary Jean Henson says
Will be trying this! Love guacamole and this healthier version sounds great!
Thanks Mary Jean!

Yay! Hope you get a chance to try it!
Beth Ann Chiles says
Printed and ready to make it today! Yum. Love guac and having a bit healthier option is great. Thanks!
Yay! Let me know how you liked it!
heather @Lunging Through Life says
OMG that many avocados?! I'm so bummer I apparently have some allergy to them! It makes me really sick when I eat them 🙁 Well, that was a few months ago and now I'm afraid to try, ha! Pinning though because everyone else loves guacamole!
Oh no!! Hopefully that doesn't last forever.
Susie @ Suzlyfe says
YES to the yes to the yes yes yes. Alex is always so weird about me adding Greek Yogurt to things. I'm like, but it is like sour cream! And he gets all weird. So I just do it without him knowing 😀 Like a little kid, lol
haha! Oh the Hubs has no idea how many things I sneak greek yogurt in!
