Strawberry Spinach Guacamole

Everyone loves a good strawberry & spinach salad come spring, myself included. A guacamole felt like a good way to mix things up a bit while getting in some of those oh-so-healthy fats that just so happen to be good for growing humans. This strawberry spinach guacamole has all of the classic fixings of a traditional guac, but gets pumped up with the addition of some spinach (you won't even know it's there) and strawberries.

Margaritas may not be on my Cinco de Mayo menu (#preggers), but you can bet there will be some guacamole! Actually, does anyone have a good virgin margarita recipe (that isn't chock full of sugar preferably)? I've discovered that making myself a fun, non-boozy drink helps a bit with the FOMO in occasions where drinking normally occurs but I'm not much of a soda drinker. Will probably be investigating this more, will try to report back. Now enough of my rambling, go make yourself some guac!
