Take a Guac Around the Block

This time of year I always love snacking and nibbling on all the goodies at holiday parties. I tell myself it's ok because it's Christmas, but when the holidays are over I usually notice that my pants a tiny bit tighter.

So today's post is my yummy and lower fat version of a favourite snack food and also an encouragement to walk around the block at least once this holiday season.

Hopefully your pants will fit perfectly and you'll still be able to enjoy all cookies, cheese, and wine you want.

And who knows, maybe you'll see some festive holiday lights on your walk too?


2 ripe avocados
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup plain yogurt (low fat Greek if possible)
1 tablespoon of lime juice
1 teaspoon of hot sauce, green if possible

1. Scoop all the green flesh from inside both avocados into a medium sized bowl. Add the minced garlic and puree with an immersion blender, about 30 - 60 seconds.

2. Add yogurt, lime juice, and hot sauce and puree for another 30 seconds.

3. Serve with tortilla chips or, to be even more healthy, veggies.

Using an immersion blender makes the guacamole smooth and fluffy. It also helps if you have slightly less ripe avocados because even tiny hard chunks will break down smoothly.
