Low fat Guacamole Dip

Low fat Guacamole Dip

 Super easy... Super quick! 

Guacamole may be one of my favorite dips. It’s creamy and delicious and not to mention good for you! But, even though it’s loaded with good fats, too many fats will not make you skinny. So I created a low fat guacamole recipe for you to use when you are being extra careful with your diet and are needing to cut back on the healthy but good extras. This dip still has that creamy texture, bright colors and great taste, and you can also use it as a low fat pesto sauce by substituting the cilantro for Italian parsley and the pistachios for pine nuts! Hope you enjoy! J


1 cup frozen peas (defrosted)
1 avocado
¼ red onion
3 garlic cloves
1 jalapeno pepper seeded
1 cup cilantro
1/3 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
1/3 cup diced tomatoes
1/8 cup pistachios (optional) --- add a nice texture :)
1 tsp. of Salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. Red pepper flakes


Combine in food processor peas, avocado, lemon juice, garlic, cilantro, pistachios, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, mix thoroughly until all ingredients are well combined. Remove from the food processor and add in the red onions, tomatoes and jalapeno peppers. Garnish with the remaining pistachios and cilantro. Ready to serve.
