Healthy Avocado Dip

  • Demo Image

I love avocados. They are the fattiest most delicious source of good fats I like eat guilt free. Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat (the good kind) as well as vitamin B6, vitamin K, folic acid and contain more potassium than bananas. They have a bunch of other vitamins too. Good fats in our diet are essential for vitamin absorption and as our bodies can't manufacture them we need to be sure we keep them coming in with our food.

This is my version of a healthy homemade avocado dip made with fresh ingredients. Once again, this is a great starter, picnic, entertaining, BBQ dish or afternoon tea snack at work with some veggie sticks.




  • 1 avocado
  • 3 tablespoons of low fat creme fraiche
  • 1 garlic clove mashed to paste with a little salt
  • sea salt to taste
  • lemon juice

Method Mash the avocado in a bowl with creme fraiche (to desired consistency), then add remaining ingredients and adjust seasoning to suit your taste. Serve with veggie sticks like capsicum, celery, carrot and cucumber.

Perfect afternoon or mid-morning snack at the office or for the kids at school.</p
