Game Day Snacking Tips
Pineapple Mango Guacamole
Without a doubt guacamole is my favorite game day snack pick (avocado lovers will agree!) and conveniently enough, today happens to be National Guacamole Day! In honor of National Guacamole Day, my student intern Adrienne and I recently played around with some ingredients to come up with a fun twist on traditional guac. This pineapple-mango guacamole is fresh and light with hints of natural sweetness balanced out by the savory blend of the avocado, tomato and spices. Together these ingredients blend together for an easy to prepare yet satisfying healthy snack for game day affairs or even as a pairing for your favorite sandwich, salad or wrap. Have an upcoming tailgate or football watching party and not sure what to bring? Be sure to give this recipe a try!!
2 (ripe!) avocados
1/2 lime, juiced
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/3 c. pineapple, finely chopped
1/3 c. mango, finely chopped
1/2 c. tomatoes, diced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Start by cutting avocados in half, remove the seed, and then scoop out the flesh with a fork into a medium bowl. Immediately combine with lime juice, which adds a nice zesty flavor while preventing your avocado from browning. Next, mix in your minced garlic, finely chopped pineapple, mango and tomatoes, and salt and pepper. Serve immediately or chill up to 24 hours in an airtight container for optimal freshness!
