Avocado Cream Sauce

Creamy Avocado Sauce recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Creamy, avocado sauce seasoned simply with salt, pepper, and lime is one of the simplest recipes I've made this year and yet, it stands out as truly amazing. If you trust me on nothing else, take my word on this recipe, and buy a couple avocados as soon as possible. This sauce is absolutely finger licking fantastic and the next two recipes I share are going to tie it together with the ultimate meats for dipping into it.

In the meantime, try this sauce with crispy baked potatoesroasted vegetables, in a breakfast taco, over, under, or with almost anything you might like to dip into it. Seriously, however you might think to serve it, it will work. We made this sauce twice in as many days and it was gone in minutes.

Avocado Cream Sauce
recipe lightly adapted from Annie's Eats
Yield: about 2 1/2 cups worth
(printable recipe)

2 large ripe avocados, halved and pitted
1 cup greek yogurt or sour cream
2 large cloves garlic, minced
juice from 2 limes, about 3-4 tablespoons worth
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, adjust to taste
1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

Place the avocado, yogurt, garlic, and lime juice in the blender. Process until completely smooth. Season with salt and pepper, according to taste. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately or cover tightly, pressing plastic wrap against the surface of the sauce before covering with an airtight lid. Sauce will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours, if you can make it last that long. Enjoy!

  1. I think I'll try this sauce with jacket potatoes, it makes sense for me !

  2. This one would be perfect for chicken fajitas and stuff like that. I usually add 1/2 of an avocado to my fire roasted chile ranch dressing for a great avocado dressing but yours is quicker to make and probably just as good. I'll try it out.

  3. The amount of garlic is way too much, it gave me a headache! Next time I'll leave the garlic out completely or just add one..
