Wait! Don’t go! If you’re thinking this is some cruel joke attempting to ruin your beloved guacamole, I assure you it is not. In fact, this simple recipe is about to forever change your guacamole-making ways. Allow me to introduce you to the healthiest guac to ever hit your lips (and chips): Creamy Greek Yogurt Guacamole.
This culinary coupling was dreamt up by my friend Rachel (of Leftover Stuffing Waffles fame), who one day casually mentioned how yogurt could lend creaminess and added health benefits (hello, protein!) to everyone’s favorite dip. I must admit, I was skeptical at first. But this is one of those “you just have to try it to believe it” recipes. My guac will never go yogurt-less again!
