It’s avocado season, which means time for guacamole! We cooked up some pork tacos last night and served it up with some shredded cabbage salad (in season) and some pro-biotic guacamole. Pork can be tricky to digest, so i like to serve it either with pectin rich foods (apples, raisins, pineapple, etc) or with yogurt. Since tomatoes aren’t in season, i like to mix up my ‘winter’ guacamole to feature what is in season or on hand, and homemade yogurt is always around this house. Delicious, nutritious, and a digestive aid to boot, this guac is super fly!
- 1 to 2 whole avocados, sliced the “right way“
- 1 T homemade mayo
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup homemade or “real” yogurt with active cultures (read, not yoplait)
- 1 clove garlic, finely diced
- Salt and pepper to taste
Smush up the avocado and add the other ingredients. Whip up until blended and serve! You may omit the mayo, but i really like mayo so i can’t resist using it in mayo-friendly recipes. As it is, this guacamole is choc full of good fats and has that added benefit of live yogurt cultures to help you digest your main dish and maintain overall good health. Wahoo! I think i’ll go make some more tacos so that i have an excuse to make this AGAIN!
