Why we love it
I’m a big fan of dipping things in guacamole, and this recipe is one of my favorites. The greek yogurt adds creaminess and rich and slightly tart taste to guacamole while giving it that extra punch of protein.
Avocados can be a little finicky when it comes to picking ones that are perfectly ripe and not spoiling. I love adding greek yogurt to the guacamole because it not only helps on those occasions when I find I don’t have enough ripe avocados, but because it also reduces the calorie count.
Just a dollop of greek yogurt makes the guacamole extra creamy, lighter to digest, and more flavorful. What could be better!?
What to serve it with?
Along with chips and tostitos, you can also serve this creamy guacamole with greek yogurt dip with items like:
- bread for an avocado toast
- as a spread inside a sandwich
- deviled eggs
- raw veggies (crudités)
- loaded potatoes
- vegetable patties
- fried fish
How to store it?
Unfortunately, guacamole tends to turn color rather quickly, so don’t prepare it more than 2-3 hours in advance. A tablespoon of lemon slows down the color changing so be sure not to skip that step.
Cover it with a plastic wrap or place it in an airtight glass container in the fridge, if you would like to prepare this creamy guacamole with greek yogurt in advance.
- 4 medium-sized avocados
- 1/4 cup of chopped cherry tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons of greek yogurt
- 1 red onion
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 2-3 leaves of chopped fresh cilantro
- pinch of garlic powder
- pinch of salt and pepper
- Using a sharp knife, cut the avocados in half and remove the pits.
- Remove the skin of the avocados and place the skinless fleshy parts into a large mixing bowl.
- Add the lemon juice to the bowl.
- Use a fork or masher to mash up the avocado until it reaches your desired consistency.
