White Bean Blend, Mayo Alternative
Want the creaminess of mayo without any of the saturated fat and useless calories?
My White Bean Blend is a delicious alternative for mayo in your tuna and chicken salad recipes, sandwiches, or wherever you’d normally use mayonnaise. Just swap out the mayo and swap in the White Bean Blend, tablespoon for tablespoon.
One serving of White Bean Blend has just 39 calories and 0 grams of fat; the same amount of mayo has 180 calories and 20 fat grams. It’s more proof that one small swap can make an enormous difference in your diet. Make this mayo swap just twice a week and you’ll effortlessly drop 5 pounds this year!
