Guacamole

Makes approximately 2 cups: Serving Size 2 Tbsp. Weight Watcher Points + 1 ~ Calories 39.5 ~ Fat 3.4 g ~ Carbs 2.6 g ~ Fiber 1.6 g ~ Protein 0.6 g

Guacamole is a heart healthy Mexican dip that can be served with all types of food.  I even top my salads with guacamole, using it as a creamy salad dressing.  It wasn’t too long ago when avocado’s were thought to be “bad” for you due to the high caloric and fat contents.  However;  avocado is actually a power food.  It is high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and assists with the absorption of antioxidants in other food it is paired with, especially salads.   So, eat up & enjoy this flavorful guac!!
