Avocado Yogurt Dip

  I wanted to share this recipe since I'll be working at my mom's job for the summer starting tomorrow. This means that I may not post recipes as much as I use to depending on how many days that they want me to work. I have a good collection of recipes that I want to try out this summer including this brownie recipe, a cheesy veggie rice, and I might try tweaking this recipe. 

Now back to this dip. 
This dip is delicious!

 I halved the recipe and adapted it a little to what we had on hand and my taste preference. This dip is rich and creamy while having a slight tang from the lime juice and cilantro. I had it on some tortilla chips that had lime seasoning sprinkled on them when I had a good idea. Why not have some of this dip on my turkey burger. And that is what I did. The turkey burger had some spice which was off set by the creamy dip and I will definitely have this dip on burgers again. 

Avocado Yogurt Dip

1/4 cup fat free Greek yogurt
1 ripe avocado, pitted & peeled
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1/8 tsp cumin
1/2 tbsp finely chopped, seeded jalapeno (optional- I omitted)
pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
salt and pepper, to taste

1. Add the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  Adjust seasoning to taste.

Serve with chips, vegetables, or on sandwiches/burgers.


  1. I love avocado too) Its a perfect dip)

  2. Nice use of avocado. It would be super if you linked this post in to Food on Friday Series which is all about avocado

  3. Like it because it doesn't have garlic or onion. Something one can eat in the middle of the day without worrying about garlic/onion breath!
