Avocado Yogurt Dip

Even the most sophisticated eaters still love to dip.

Hummus always makes eating carrots a little more fun.

And what’s a pita chip without the guacamole? 

Sweet yogurt dips are also starting to make a comeback with fruit.
And dipping strawberries in dark chocolate will never, ever go out of style.

One of our favorite dips is this Avocado Yogurt Dip. Not only does it taste great, the healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats from the avocados pair perfectly with protein-rich Greek yogurt to satisfy hunger while making for a more nutritious alternative to many store-bought, processed dips.

Lisa loves this dip paired with her fish tacos, while I love using it as a spread on my veggie sandwiches. It also is great for a topping on your chili, or as a dip for homemade tortilla chips and sweet potato fries.

1 large ripe Hass avocado
4 ounces Greek yogurt
Dash hot sauce
Juice of 1 lime, about 2 tablespoons
Sea salt, to taste
Lemon pepper, to taste



1.      In a small bowl, mash together the Hass avocado, yogurt, hot sauce, lime juice, salt, and lemon pepper.

2.      Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
Enjoy, preferably with those you love.
