Recipe & Nutrition Information
One thing that makes this recipe simple, is the small number of ingredients. Every ingredient on this list will be available in your local store and you may even have them already! This recipe is also incredibly versatile. For example, you can substitute the citrus juices for either lemon or lime and even change the seasoning if you want to. Don’t like sour cream? Use yogurt instead! Just a word of warning though, if you do use yogurt, check the sugar content first. Many dairy products are full of sugar to make them taste better and this can leave you feeling hungry later.
Regarding nutrition, these keto avocado cups contain a whopping 26 grams of fat. This is perfect for keto dieters wanting to keep their macros in check. There’s also 2.5 grams of protein, which is great for a small on-the-go snack. With 4 grams of fiber, these cups are also a great way to add some much-needed nutrition to your keto diet without going overboard on carbohydrates. Nutrition is calculated using lime juice and sour cream.
This part is very simple! All you need to do is peel, pit, and mash your avocado. To get a smooth texture you can use a blender to mash your avocado, otherwise just do it by hand. Remember to keep the avocado skin though!
Add to a small bowl the lime or lemon juice, sour cream or plain yoghurt and the fresh cilantro. Mix until all the ingredients are combined and then spoon the mixture into the avocado skins.
All that's left to do now, is season the mixture to your required taste. We recommended sprinkling the finished cups with half a teaspoon of paprika for a tasty kick, but if you want to go all out, chill powder is a good option too. Finally, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
