Guacamole with Greek Yogurt

Guacamole with Greek yogurt is epic

And by epic I mean completely scrumptious and ridiculously addictive.

Instead of using the standard sour cream, I used low fat Greek Yogurt (Cabot of course) because it is what I had on hand. The good thing about using Greek yogurt is that it has almost double to protein of sour cream. I think it gives the guacamole a tad bit more zing too. Did I mention it’s addictive???

With Cinco de Mayo just a couple days away, you need to go out and grab yourself some avocados so you cam make this! It’s the perfect Cinco de Mayo recipe!!!

Oh and here’s a little tip on storage. You see guac HATES air, oxygen is the mortal enemy.
So to avoid O2 hitting your guac, take a piece of plastic wrap and press it down onto the surface of the guacamole and then cover it with a lid. This will prevent unnecessary browning.
