Veggie-Packed Keto Guacamole Recipe
Keto Guacamole Recipe with Sneaky Broccoli – Low Carb Guacamole!
When it comes to guacamole, it seems like most people agree: it rocks. And, this keto guacamole recipe comes with an extra boost of nutrition from a sneaky secret ingredient…BROCCOLI. Because, in my opinion, a keto diet isn’t just about keeping the carbs low. It’s also about making nutritious choices.
Using condiments and dips can be a great way to add flavor and variety to our healthy meals. But, that deliciousness often comes with a price for our bodies—like loads of empty calories, artificial ingredients, and even added sugars.
Luckily, guacamole (one of my all-time favorite dips) is a scrumptious, healthy exception to that rule! And, thanks to avocado’s nutritious fats, it’s naturally keto friendly!
Get Nutritious Fats AND Veggies in this Keto Guacamole Recipe
Don’t worry, your dip will still taste like the creamy, savory, salty guac that you know and love! More than a broccoli taste, finely diced florets add a fun texture to this keto guacamole recipe. And, of course, loads of disease-fighting nutrients!
For a keto diet in particular, broccoli is an awesome low carb veggie option with loads of fiber. In this keto guacamole recipe, that fiber helps cut down on net carbs so each serving has a whopping 6 grams of fiber and only 4 grams of net carbs! Plus, for ANY diet or lifestyle, getting more veggies is always a win!
The Boundless Benefits of Broccoli
Unsurprisingly, broccoli is one of the best veggies that we can sneak into our diet. It’s a member of the powerful, disease-fighting cruciferous vegetable family, and broccoli is actually one of the MOST nutrient-dense foods we can eat!
For one, it’s surprisingly rich in protein for a vegetable, with around 3 grams per cup. And, it’s an incredible source of phytonutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory compounds that help to fend off chronic diseases!
Plus, since many people don’t like the taste of broccoli, sneaking it into this cool, creamy keto guacamole recipe makes it easy to get more of those incredible nutritional benefits!
Easy Keto Snacks Just Got Easier!
I know, a keto guacamole recipe isn’t exactly a rare thing… The main ingredient—avocado—is naturally rich in dietary fats and fiber. An ideal combo on a keto diet or low carb lifestyle! And, the monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids in avocado pack even more disease-fighting power into this keto guacamole recipe.
On one hand, those dietary fats make guacamole a more filling and satisfying snack, but they also have some incredible anti-inflammatory benefits! With SO many people suffering from the effects of chronic inflammation, we could all use more guac in our lives…
But, what really makes this keto guacamole recipe special are the simple ingredients, sneaky veggies, and just how EASY it is to make. Surprisingly, many store-bought guacamole brands are made with all sorts of food additives, just like other ultra-processed foods.
This keto guacamole recipe keeps things simple, with only 5 main ingredients. And, one of those ingredients is a wholesome veggie! Fat is crucial on a keto diet, but so are nutritious veggies.
Guac ‘n Roll
Serve your guac with some raw radish chips or your favorite veggie dippers for an extra boost of nutrition, or feel free to go at this easy keto snack with a spoon! For anyone who struggles to get enough veggies in your day, give this keto guacamole recipe a try!
