Delicious Edamame Guacamole Recipe

Spare unwanted calories by swapping avocados with just one ingredient – edamame! This lighter version offers creamy flavors you love and is high in protein & fiber.

Delicious Edamame Guacamole Recipe

It looks like guac and tastes like guac, but it's better! Wait, what? We did not think that was possible either!

Unlike guacamole, this healthy recipe substitutes edamame for avocados to help you create a healthier version that is high in protein and fiber and low in calories and fat.

Sounds too good to be true? We thought so too until we tried it and now just cannot get enough edamole!

Create this recipe for your next get-together and tell us what you and your guests think! (Hint: don’t tell them it’s made with edamame.)
