Skinny Blender Green Pea Guacamole

Add some extra nutrients to your next party dip by making it a green pea guacamole. The taste of a traditional guac it still there but the health benefits (and savings...avocados are expensive little buggers) are amped up. Serve with tortilla chips and some chopped up veggie sticks to keep it on the healthy side.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cilantro leaves about one bunch
  • 1 cup frozen peas slightly thawed
  • ½ cup chopped white onion
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice plus more to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 medium jalapeño stem removed, with or without seeds depending on heat level required
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large ripe avocados pitted and peeled and chopped into rough chunks
  • ½ cup diced fresh tomatoes

Instructions

  • 1. Place first 8 ingredients (everything but the avocado and tomatoes) in a high speed blender or food processor and blend 1-2 minutes. If using a Vitamix then use the tamper to constantly push the ingredients down until a smooth paste forms.
  • If not using a Vitamix you may need to turn the machine off and scrape down the sides with a spatula 3-4 times during the blending phase.
  • Once you have a smooth paste then add in the chopped avocados and the diced tomatoes. Pulse about 6 times, until they are incorporated, but still chunky. 
  • Remove guacamole and store in an airtight container with a lid. Serve with chips, chopped veggie sticks, or use in a wrap, tacos etc

Notes

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for around 2-3 days. Give everything a good stir before serving up.
