Yep, just what it sounds like, guacamole with broccoli! I saw this on pinterest and got super excited, what a good idea! But then, when I went to the recipe, it called for over-cooked broccoli, cream cheese, and no avocado! You can't have a mole without the avo! So, needless to say, I didn't make it like that. I made up my own awesome, avocado and raw broccoli dip. It's is super healthy and tastes amazing!

  • one head of broccoli, trimmed and chopped
  • one ripe avocado
  • juice of 1/4 lime
  • small handful fresh cilantro (around 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

Now, before I continue, do you know how good broccoli is for you? Broccoli has three phytonutrients that work together to help detoxify your body. It also acts as an anti-inflamitory, and is full of antioxidants. This combination makes broccoli a cancer preventing machine. I don't know about you, but it doesn't take a lot of convincing to get me to eat cancer preventing foods, bring on the broccoli! To learn more, check it out here

Okay, just throw it all into a food processor and blend until smooth! I was so impressed with this dip. You can barely taste the broccoli, yet you know its there. I am definitely going to find more ways to sneak broccoli into my meals! We ate this broccamole on salmon tacos with a beet and carrot slaw. Raw veggies never tasted so good!
