• 11 soft large Avocado (makes about 2 servings or 1 cup of Guac)
  • 1/8 tsp Garlic Powder (or fresh minced garlic)
  • 1/8 tsp Paprika (smoked paprika is a great alternative)
  • 1/8 tsp Cumin
  • 1/16 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/16 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Lime Juice (fresh or bottled)
  • 1 small Diced Tomato [optional]
  • Blue Tortilla Chips

Homemade guac is one of the new up and coming health trends! This healthy snack alternative is great because avocados are often labeled as a “super food,” due to the fact that they have so many vitamins and nutrients that are important to the body, such as essential omega-3 fatty-acids.

These fats help keep you feeling full and satisfied longer. It is super fast and easy to make yourself with fresh ingredients, which cuts out a lot of unhealthy preservatives and makes it taste much better.

All you have to do is mash the avocado with a fork then mix in the spices, seasonings and diced tomato.

Serve with blue corn chips or another whole grain chip for a healthier snack alternative.
