Creamy Avocado Spread/Dip (Vegan)

Ever on the search for a better breakfast alternative, I dreamed up this creation to satisfy my desire to eat more avocados, as well as an alternative for a breakfast/snack/dip that was savory, but not unhealthy.

Avocados are so good for you: according to californiaavocado.com “Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.”

There’s the facts … here’s the spread:

What you will need:

  • 1-2 avocados
  • a drizzle olive oil
  • lemon/orange juice
  • a splash of dairy-free milk (optional)
  • spices: salt, pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika

The Method:

  1. Half the avocados and scoop out the flesh into a food processor. (I used 1.5 small avocados)
  2. Pulse until it starts to get creamy. 562
  3. Add the lemon/orange juice, a drizzle of olive oil, and the spices of your choice. Pulse until creamy.561
  4. If it is still really thick, you can thin it with the diary-free milk, or the olive oil.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Spread onto toast for a great breakfast or snack. 
  • Spread onto a sandwich in place of mayonnaise.
  • Put into a bowl for dipping chips or veggies.

Until next time, I send you peace, love, and good energy.
