Low fat (but super tasty!) guacamole

Even though ‘low fat’ sounds a bit sad when we talk about guacamole, but that absolutely does not have to be the case, as this is both so flavourful and creamy at the same time!  And just to make things clear, I’m not shaming guacamole (because it’s simply one of the greatest creations out there) I just love this recipe because 1: it tastes AMAZING and 2: it makes a bigger volume for the amount of avocado (and you could totally eat the entire portion on your own). And let’s be honest; I love food and I like to have more dip than just half an avocado mashed. I looove to have this with some baked potatoes/sweet potatoes vedges, but you could also use raw slices veggies or make it as a salad dressing or put in a sandwich. There’s loads of options!

This is so easy and quick to make, and it will keep in the fridge for about 2 days if you keep it in an airtight container.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 green onion
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 handful of parsley (or fresh herb of choice)
  • A pinch of cayenne or about half a fresh chili (use according to desired amount of heat)

Chop celery, green onion and chili (if using) into smaller chunks. Add everything to a food processer (if you have a mini food processor, use that! But larger ones will do just fine) and blend away! You can leave it chunky or you can blend it smooth. Scoop into a bowl and serve!

(I may or may not have a slight obsession with this combo.. )

Enjoy!

    I have been wanting to try this recipe since Balancedveganfife posted it. Lowfat guac? Ummm yes please. Finally found some ripe-but-not-too-ripe avocados at Whole Foods yesterday, so I knew this recipe was going to be my dinner tonight. I even made the sweet potato fries to dip in it. The verdict? Absolutely delicious. Thanks for posting Balancedveganlife!!!!
