Alright, who doesn’t like guacamole?
Well, if you had asked me about a year ago, I would have said, “Umm, ME, I don’t like guacamole.”
Boy how things can change after a year. ;)
But better yet, who doesn’t like some HEALTHIFIED guacamole?!?
That’s what I thought! Keep reading…
First, you mash up a can of early peas. Yup, that’s right, peas! Don’t they look tasty?? :shock:
Next, mash up 1/2 cup worth of avocado. This baby gave me the perfect amount.
Then, add in some chopped onion, plain fat-free Greek yogurt, & chopped grape tomatoes.
Followed by your seasonings.
And you’ve got yourself one heck of a bowl of guacamole my friends!!
