Here is something super easy to whip up and very good for you. This is extremely versitile and it will last a few days in the fridge.
You can whip up a quick avocado spread and it is delicious on Quesadillas, Tacos, Sandwiches, as a dip with fresh veggies, scrambled eggs and so much more!
I just made this last night to put on top of a burger with a little cheddar cheese. It was so good I decided to post it today for you to try!
This is the recipe that I use, it is a little lighter in calories and very healthy. Instead of plain greek yogurt you can also try sour cream or ranch dressing-roll with the flavors you like.
- 2 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
- 1 small to medium Avocado
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper
- Juice from ½ lime
- Add all ingredients into a food processor and blend until creamy.
So it is that easy! I think this would be yummy on a BLT sandwich as an alternative to Mayo. I also like to sprinkle with a little paprika. I think smoked paprika might be really nice too! Since I am a vegetarian, I like to spread this on good whole wheat bread, add some carrot shavings and a slice of cheddar cheese. Delicious quick and healthy sandwich.
And I just made this for my own dinner last night and decided to photograph it at the last minute. So the pictures you see here are of spread that is a day old- this is much more forgiving then guac or plain avocado because it keeps that lovely green color.
As I type this, I am sitting and snacking away on this dip with a baggie of baby carrots. This is a great grab n go snack and would be perfect with tomatoes, carrots, jicama, peppers….
My favorite is to have this with a juicy burger (I eat veggie burgers and I can promise it is yummy with those) but this would be delicious on my other favorite Black Bean Mexican Wrap too!
If you decide to try this let me know what you think and how you served it!
