Guacamole is one of our foods from the Aztecs and originated in Mexico in the 16th century. Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.Yes avocado is a fruit and one of my personal favorites when you crave something rich and fatty but don’t want to clog those arteries. This recipe takes seconds to prepare and uses non-fat, high protein plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Gluten-free and delicious!
3 ripe Haas avocados
3 tablespoons plain non-fat Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon sambal chili garlic sauce
1 teaspoon sucralose, stevia or sugar
Cut avocados lengthwise, remove the seed and scoop out the fruit and place in a bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients mixing them with a fork but leaving small chunks of avocado for texture. Serve
