Creamy Avocado Lime Spread is a garlicky, citrusy, herbaceous dip that goes just as well with burgers as it does with vegetables, chips, and crackers! Prepared in a blender, it’s ready in minutes and full of satisfying flavor! {Vegan + Paleo}

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (more if needed)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped or minced
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • Sea salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Add the ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor and blend on a MEDIUM speed until desired consistency is reached. If necessary, stream in more olive oil and check under the blades for any cilantro leaves or pieces of garlic that may be stuck. Blend again to recombine any ingredients that didn’t blend.
  2. For best results, serve immediately with burgers, sautéed vegetables, fresh vegetables, crackers, or chips. If contents settle or begin to brown, then give the spread a brisk stir.

Notes

  • Use fresh lime juice, if possible. It’s sweet and brightens the recipe. If you have to buy a bag of limes and aren’t sure what to do with the leftovers, then may I suggest Blueberry Sparkling Water? If you have leftover cilantro, too, then may I suggest Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice or Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette? If, for one reason or another, fresh lime juice isn’t feasible, then bottle will absolutely do, and your Creamy Avocado Lime Spread will be divine.
  • Check under the blades for any ingredients that get stuck. While this is by no means a tricky recipe, depending on the blender or food processor used, cilantro leaves and pieces of garlic have a tendency to get stuck underneath the blades.
  • Adjust the ingredient quantities as needed. This might seem obvious but since we’re working with fresh ingredients, each one might be a little different from the next. If the spread seems flat, then add a splash of lime juice to brighten it. If it seems a little too earthy or bland, then add more sea salt.  Do the same if you need to add more olive oil but find that neutralizes the citrusy-garlicky flavor too much.
