Healthy Basil Guacamole for Super Bowl Sunday

For me, Super Bowl Sunday isn’t just about the game—-it’s about the food!

Buffalo chicken wings, seven-layer taco dip, and cheese-covered casseroles… obviously, the typical fare is fun to eat. My favorite dishes, however, are not very friendly on my waistline, especially if I snack all game long, so I created a healthy and relatively low-calorie guacamole recipe to enjoy next Sunday.

It’s made with an all-star cast of ingredients–avocado, Greek yogurt, fresh basil, garlic, and onion–which amp up the nutrients, satiety, and flavor profile.

This dip is so rich and delicious, you won’t even know it’s been healthified!

Basil Guacamole


  • 1 large ripe avocado, halved, seeded, and peeled 
  • 12 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1.5 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a food process and blend well. Serve chilled or at room temperature with tortilla chips, crackers, or crudites.
