Creamelicious Avocado Dressing

August 3, 2018

 

*sigh* Avocado. How I love thee. 

Let me count the ways — I love thee in salads. I love thee in soups. I love thee in smoothies. I love thee on crackers and toast. I love thee in dressings. I love thee in guacamole. I love thee in chocolate mousse. I love thee in so many ways. And mostly, I love thee just as you are: plain and delicious.

 

This creamy avocado dressing is perfect to integrate much-needed healthy fat into your diet. Add it to any salad, green bowl, and even on rice or quinoa!

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

  • 1 avocado chopped

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 

  • ½ cup water (a little more if using a large avocado)

  • 1 teaspoon lime zest (or lemon)

  • 1 large or 2 small garlic cloves

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea or Himalayan pink salt

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

  • Juice of 1 large lime (or lemon)

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or coconut syrup. If non-vegan honey)

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

Add all ingredients in a blender or a food processor. Process and blend until smooth and creamy. Add a little more water, if you prefer it to be a little thinner. Add more lime juice, salt & pepper to taste.

 

BENEFITS:

 

Considered by many health experts to be one of the top superfoods and a super nutrient-dense food, avocado benefits include critical, healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants, multiple trace vitamins and minerals, high in protein and low in sugar. Although one medium-size avocado has about 215 calories, the healthy fat, fibre and phytochemical content of this amazing fruit will even help you lose weight!
