A 4-Ingredient Guacamole Recipe With A Stealthy Serving Of Veggies
Not only is guacamole a creamy, craveable dip—it's also full of nutrients. While the specifics vary per recipe, all guacamole contains healthy fats and antioxidants from avocados, which have been shown to lower cholesterol. To amp up the health benefits even more, mbg created a four-ingredient guacamole recipe starring mbg organic veggies+ greens powder.
Finally, a greens blend powered by organic sea veggies to fight inflammation*
"Adding veggies+ to your guac basically supercharges it with more nutrients, anti-inflammatory benefits, and gut-friendly probiotics," registered dietitian Maggie Michalczyk, R.D., tells mbg.*
The greens powder is also packed with sea veggies and dark leafy greens, which Michalczyk says are good sources of vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, calcium, and potassium.* "Adding it to a dip like this is a not-so-sneaky way to give yourself a nutritional boost in a fun way," she adds.
Along with three ripe avocados and organic veggies+, this recipe combines purple (aka red) onion and garlic. These allium vegetables can help manage blood pressure and support the immune system with their antimicrobial properties.
