Green Goddess Guacamole

We’re having guac today! I’m excited because A) I’ve never made homemade guac before and it turned out awesome, and B) I’m using my new SNAP Glass container set from OXO! You can never have too many food storage containers. Seriously. I’m pretty sure my dishwasher eats them.

In my last post, I announced that I’m going to be venturing out of the world of desserts every now and then to bring some healthy and savory balance to the blog. So I figured I would start out with a fun chips and dip combo that would be great for entertaining, cookouts, or even tailgating during football season! (It’s so close!!)

As someone who is trying to overcome her aversion to green foods, I decided to go with a super healthy version of guacamole, which basically means I threw a bunch of spinach in it. Kinda like a green goddess smoothie. And you know what? It tastes like regular guacamole!

If you want to be super healthy you could throw some kale in there too, since that’s something people include in Green Goddess recipes sometimes, but I just cannot with kale. I’ve tried. I’m just not a kale person. Sorry, kale.

And if you want to be really really healthy, you could serve this guac with veggie chips instead of tortilla chips! And you know, maybe a margarita. Which is fruit. So you’d be in pretty good shape with your servings of fruit and veggies for the day. Or at least the veggies might balance out the alcohol. 😉
