“Half the Fat” Pineapple Guacamole

"Half the Fat" Pineapple Guacamole! www.LipstickandBerries.com

Are you avocado obsessed?! This recipe will satisfy your cravings for creamy avocado, but it won’t do the damage to your waistline.  🙂  I first encountered Pineapple Guacamole at a delicious Mexican restaurant in Texas years ago…actually it was bacon pineapple guacamole, but let’s forget the bacon part! Haha!

I eat a low fat vegan diet.  Avocados, being so high in fat, are not a huge part of normal routine.  To keep this recipe lower in fat, I decided to substitute the second avocado for sweet green peas.  I was so happy with this recipe!  It is very creamy, zesty, and sweet!  The pineapple adds a tropical twist!  Feel free to get creative and add more seasonings if you like!  I think mango would be a great addition as well!

I like to eat this guacamole with fresh carrots!  This would be delicious used as a spread on a sandwich or wrap.

This adorable hand stamped fork is from the very talented Aly of For Such a Time Designs.  I love her creations!
