Lightened Up Guacamole

Hi Everyone,

One thing I have fallen in love with this past year is avocados.  I love them!  I put them on everything!  But, the one thing I don’t care for is the calories they have.  I can so easily eat a half an avocado, but it’s like a bazillion calories, so I have to learn to limit myself, up until now…

I have come up with a nice lightened up guacamole that is sure to please the pallet and the waistline.  It’s creamy, has a little kick of heat and a slight zip of lime, it’s so perfect!  It is so good on tacos, salads and dipping my chips in it.  I can eat the whole thing and not feel horribly bad, but I will try to save a little bit, at least for a day or two.

My guacamole is made with avocados of course, greek yogurt, tomatoes and some seasoning.  I got the idea for this dip from Trader Joe’s.  They have a nice greek yogurt and avocado dip, and I love it, but you know what, I love mine more!  he he  Bonus part is, it’s quick and easy to make and it costs less too!!
