A quick, fresh Avocado Sauce for dipping, dolloping and scooping!
Terrific as a dip for chips or vegetable sticks, as a sauce for all things Mexican including quesadillas, burritos, nachos, and tacos.
This is a terrific Avocado Sauce that I use for all things Mexican. Pictured above with Quesadillas, the other recipe I published today.
It pairs really well with Mexican food because it’s got a lovely bright flavour which tempers the bold flavours of Mexican food – and of course is reminiscent of our ever favourite Guacamole!
Made with avocado, sour cream or yoghurt, lemon or lime, coriander/cilantro, garlic and olive oil, I describe it as fresh and bright but it’s also got the natural rich creaminess from avocados.

Quick and easy to make with the aide of your food processor, the other benefit of this Avocado Sauce is that it stays green for days and days! Pictured below on Day 3, and it’s just as green and fresh tasting as it was on Day 1.

Health Benefits of Avocado
An Avocado Sauce is a far healthier option than a mayo-laden dip! Avocado are packed full of vitamins, minerals, fiber and healthy fats! One of the few natural produce that contains a substantial amount of monounsaturated fatty acids which are good fats known to lower cholesterol and promote heart health.
With almost 20 vitamins and minerals, their potential health benefits include improving digestion, good for your heart, lower cholesterol, decrease risk of depression, and protection against cancer.
Avocado is also good for weight loss because it’s high in fibre and (good!) fats which will keep you feeling full for longer. You’re far better off loading up a salad with avocado than cheese, or smushing avocado on your morning toast than peanut butter! But because they are 77% fat, they do need to be eaten in moderation.
