Coach Nicole's Fresh & Skinny Guacamole

Submitted by: COACH_NICOLE
Coach Nicole's Fresh & Skinny Guacamole

Introduction

Cucumbers give this guacamole a refreshing flavor while also cutting the calories in each serving. Cucumbers give this guacamole a refreshing flavor while also cutting the calories in each serving.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 ripe avocados, peeled and chopped
    1/3 medium organic* cucumber, chopped
    1/3 medium onion, chopped (I use red onion)
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1 tsp cumin powder
    1 squeeze lemon (about 1-2 Tbsp juice)
    Salt to taste (about 1/2 tsp)

Tips

*If using conventional (non-organic) cucumber, peel skin and discard as cukes sprayed with pesticides retain most of those chemicals in the peel, which should not be consumed.


Directions

Add all ingredients to blender or food processor and process to desired consistency. Add salt (about 1/2 tsp) to taste. Serve chilled. Enjoy with your favorite chips or tortillas.

    This is very similar to the low fat recipe I use. I add chopped fresh cilantro (or the paste from the tube) AND I add nonfat plain yogurt. The yogurt cuts the fat per serving and makes the guac more creamy. I add about 1/4 cup to one avocado - 1/7/09

    Even with lemon, the guacamole can brown - the fail-safe non browning trick is to cover with ceran wrap and PRESS the wrap right onto the top of the guacamole. I hardly ever use lemon and it never browns when I store it :) - 2/9/09

    I think the best way to check on serving size is to measure in a measuring cup and divide by 8. (e.g., 1/8 cup, if it makes one cup) OR 2 tablespoons full if it makes 16 tablespoons. Will definitely try this and keep you posted
