Creamy avocado dip and/or dressing

This creamy multi purpose dressing not only tastes great, it has a lot of health benefits to it as well. Full of healthy fats, it’s also pro biotic and loaded with raw goodness.

And since I have a bit of a crush on avocados right now, we make this quite a bit.

Plus avocados are full of fertility and hormone friendly nutrients, so you can rest in the fact that it’s good for you!

Creamy avocado dip

I like to use it for dipping veggies, especially cucumbers, for sandwich spreads, tacos, and salads. And when you find a perfectly rip avocado, the fabulous color invites everyone to dig in.

Avocado dip/dressing
Recipe type: Salads and Dressings
  • 1 ripe avocado (it’ll be slightly soft)
  • ⅓ cup whole milk plain yogurt (kefir could be used for a thinner consistency or greek yogurt if you have it on hand)
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 small clove of garlic – minced
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon or lime juice
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • couple shakes of ground black pepper
  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Best if served immediately, but can be refrigerated for a couple days. (Add lemon juice and/or place in a sealed ziploc with the air pressed out to slow the browning of the avocado.)
  3. If you use greek yogurt you may need to add a bit of oil to thin it enough for it to blend, or simply mash and mix by hand.
  4. Use it for dipping vegetables in, on salads, or as a sandwich spread.
