easy paleo avocado crema made with avocado, almond milk, garlic and lime juice

Avocado Crema

This creamy avocado crema is made by throwing a few ingredients in a blender and blending until smooth. What could be easier? It’s great for dipping veggies, as a veggie noodle sauce, or as a salad dressing. I love the vibrant green color and it’s made with avocado, so it is obviously delicious!

Ohhhh, avocado, how I love you! Who knew avocados could be so versatile?! People nowadays are putting avos in smoothies, making avocado fries, grilling them, using them as a bowl for chicken salads, and even making BROWNIES (what!!). They’re like a unicorn — they’re a vegetable… that has a ton of fats… and somehow super healthy. It can only be a gift from above.

Of all the ways we can use our beloved avocados, we can now add sauce to the list. I came up with this avocado crema as a sauce to pour over zucchini noodles but quickly realized it could be so much more! A veggie dip, taco topping, salad dressing… put it on everything! It’s that good.

I’m 85% sure you already have all of these ingredients in your kitchen and if so then I’m 100% sure that if you don’t eat your avocados TODAY they’ll be bad tomorrow. So whip out your Magic Bullet and make a big batch of this crema because good news – it will last a few days in the fridge! The lime juice prevents the avocado from oxidizing so it’s perfect for those about-to-go-bad-must-eat-today avocados.

You already know that I don’t make recipes that aren’t ridiculously easy (because I’m busy/lazy). So like everything else this crema is supperrrr simple. Literally all you do it’s throw the ingredients in a blender (I use a Magic Bullet) and blend until smooth. Done.

Lastly, this crema is also customizable. You could easily blend in some cilantro for a little extra flavor. Throw in some cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, or jalapeño for a little kick. No almond milk? Cool. Use coconut milk. Add some other spices that play well with avocado, like cumin. You’re the boss!
