Protein Packed Guacamole Recipe (10g+ Protein!)

Protein Packed Guacamole Recipe (10g+ Protein!)
in Sides

I had just finished a beefy CrossFit workout and was left wondering what to eat. I was craving guacamole, but wanted more protein. Emboldened by my recent success of adding whey powder to a cauliflower mash, I though, what the heck, let's jack up the guacamole. I took my brother-in-laws lazy man guacamole recipe (salsa and avocado) and added nutritional yeast, spices, and whey protein. 

If you read some of my other recipes you know I love nutritional yeast. Not only is it a good source of complete proteins but also B vitamins, which improves the energy output of food. It doesn't hurt that it's just plain tasty.

Scared that I had just destroyed a perfectly good avocado, I gave it a taste... and it was good! Don't believe me? Try it for yourself. Warning, the first time I ate both servings for lunch and barely needed to eat anything else for the rest of the day. 

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted
  • 1.5 tbsp salsa
  • 1/2 small lime, juiced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp minced dried onion
  • 1/2 scoop unflavoured whey protein powder
  • 2 tsp of nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp fresh minced cilantro
  • Sriracha to taste (I recommend 1/8 tsp)

Directions

  1. Lightly mash avocado in medium mixing bowl
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well blended

IMPORTANT: make sure you use a good quality UNFLAVOURED whey protein powder.  I really like Isopure's Unflavoured Whey Protein Isolate, which I recently subscribed to on amazon, but there are lots of other great brands out there.

What's your favorite unflavoured whey protein powder?  Leave your answer in the commends below. 

Oh, and here's my cauliflower mash recipe. It's SO good!
