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.
It looks like guac and taste like guac, but its better! Wait, what? We didn’t think that was possible either, but 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 & now we just can’t 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.)
Note: If desired, add 2-4 tablespoons avocado for a more authentic taste but a lot less fat!
