Greek Yogurt Spinach Guacamole – this simple, healthy guacamole takes less than 5 minutes to make and will be an absolute hit at your next dinner party. You’ll never buy store bought again!
Oh my sweet word.
Have you ever created a dip (or anything for that matter) that left you patting yourself on the back while you devour half the bowl, as well as an entire bag of chips with it? Yeah, that happened with this Greek Yogurt Spinach Guacamole. If I didn’t have someone to share this delightful dish with, I may not have reigned in my animalistic tendencies.
If you’ve been a With Peanut Butter on Top follower over the years, you know that if I can put an avocado on it or in it, I will. And why not?! It’s considered a nutrient-dense fruit (yep, it’s a fruit!) that has a rich, yet subtle, flavor and has the perfect creamy consistency. You can use it in replacement of so many things. And it’s a heart-healthy fat. Win win in my book if you ask me.
Holy creamy, delicious guacamole goodness. “That’s all I have to say about that.” (In my best [not really] Forest Gump voice).
Once you make this, you’ll be thinking of all the things you can add it to, scoop it on top of, spread it all ov… wait..never mind.
This week my husband got to enjoy a shredded chicken wrap with a heaping spoonful of this guacamole in his lunch. Rave reviews all around for both the chicken and the guacamole. Score! Want the shredded chicken recipe? Check out my latest post for the easiest shredded chicken recipe you’ll make.

You’ll love it. Just ask my husband.. I caught him standing at the fridge with a fork and the container of leftover chicken.
Ok, enough self-pats…
As you can see, all you need is a handful of ingredients and a handy dandy blender or food processor. I use a food processor for all of my blending. I find that it helps to give a more even consistency without having to keep stirring it with a spatula like you do a blender. Maybe that’s just me.
The blender hardly gets used. Maybe for smoothies? Well, we all know I’m not much of a smoothie person, as delicious as they may be.
Step 1 of 1: Toss all ingredients into a blender/processor. Yep, that’s truly all there is to it. Perfect, huh? I thought so.
Within minutes you’ll be dipping a chip, or two (maybe five), directly into the processor. Or is that just me when I cook? Yeah, I didn’t think so. 😉
Serve this delicious and simple guacamole with your favorite tortilla chips, carrots, celery, or even sliced cucumber.
