“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Dip „
Guacamole is lovely, and I love to have it as a dip, and I always assumed it was fairly healthy, as it is made from avocados - how wrong I was! A serving of regular guacamole, which is about 50g, has roughly 105kcal. It also has 4g of saturated fat, which is not good! I still really wanted the guacamole, so I decided to try the Reduced Fat Guacamole from Tescos and I am so pleased! Guacamole is basically a dip made from avocados and yoghurt. This guacamole has 45% avocado puree, 17% avocado and 10% tomatoes in, and the yoghurt is low fat natural yoghurt, so I was quite pleased to read this on the packet, as it seemed packed full of good ingredients. The pack is a round, see-through, plastic tub, which is contained within some cardboard which is light green. It is easy to spot amongst the other dips in the section in the supermarket. Just looking at the dip, you can see the lovely chunks of avocado and tomato just waiting to be eaten! The dip is a green colour, and is dotted with the chunks of tomato and avocado and looks very appetising. The texture is perfect. It is difficult to even tell it is a low fat version as it is still creamy from the natural yoghurt. The chunks of vegetables are lovely and the dip is thick. It is easy to dip in to, and just as easy to spread as it is the perfect consistency. I have my guacamole with pitta bread or bread sticks or vegetable sticks, however we also tried some on some nachos wth sour cream and cheese and it worked perfectly. I would say, be careful not to leave it too long as the colour soon fades and it is best eaten within a few days of opening the packet. This low fat version is great for healthier eating. The calories per 50g serving are 70, which is a saving of 35kcal per serving compared to the full fat version. Also, the saturated fat is only 1.3g compared to the 4g. So, as you can see, it is a lovely flavoursome, healthy dip! The dip cost me £1.85 which is quite expensive, however I think it is worth it and I have bought it many times. The dip does contain milk, and cannot guarantee to be free of nuts. I really recommend buying this, it is absolutely lovely!
