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!

MY LATEST VIDEOS

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.

    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.

  15. You had me at guacamole! It’s my favorite condiment.

  16. everything and anything avocado works in my book! Love this combo

    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 😉

    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.

    Will be trying this! Love guacamole and this healthier version sounds great!

    Printed and ready to make it today! Yum. Love guac and having a bit healthier option is great. Thanks!

    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!

    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!
