Description

A quick and versatile dairy-free creamy avocado and cilantro dressing and dip that works on salads, tacos, and with veggies and chips.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup plain coconut yogurt, drained*
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves and short stems, tightly packed
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh jalapeno
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/16 tsp xanthan gum (1/8 tsp if yogurt is not drained)
  • Generous pinch of ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. If using a new container of yogurt, peel foil back partially and drain off excess liquid that has separated. This will result in a thicker yogurt. If yogurt has already been mixed, increase xanthan gum to 1/8 tsp.
  2. Place all ingredients, except for yogurt, in a food processor and pulse until well combined (enough to break up the avocado chunks and cilantro leaves).
  3. Add yogurt and continue to pulse, scraping down sides as needed, until mostly smooth with small bits of cilantro.
  4. Transfer to a glass airtight container and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Notes

Refrigerate in a glass airtight container up to 3 days, stir before serving.
