Summer is in full-swing, which means cookouts, pool parties, game nights, and happy hours are almost daily events! Ben and I have had such a fun weekend hanging out with friends, going out for our anniversary at Second Empire (check out Instagram to see what I had for my entree and dessert!), and taking the pooch swimming in the Eno. Today we had some friends over to play cards, and I hardly felt like making a big messy snack to serve. I remembered that I had a few ripe avocados and a lime in the fridge, so what better than to do a little bit of recipe development? This yogamole recipe is delicious, healthy, and absolutely simple! I love the addition of Greek yogurt to make it a little creamier. It also helps to make it stretch a bit more… we have some eaters in the house! 🙂
Chop, mash, and stir. That’s it! Serve with pretzels or tortilla chips and dip away!
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1 small yellow onion, diced finely (about 1/2 cup)

Happy picknicking/BBQing/pool-chilling! This yogamole also goes great on sandwiches and wraps in place of hummus or mayo!
