Garlic Avocado Dip

There’s something irresistible about avocados! As expected, at pretty much any given time, I almost always have avocados in my kitchen, or while out grocery shopping, I can hardly pass them by in the produce section without grabbing a few. Oh how I love thee, dearest avocado!

This simple garlic-avocado dip is the perfect snack to sit down with when you’re watching a football game, and it’s a healthy alternative to fried finger foods for your holiday get together. It has the right amount of garlicky kick with a yummy creamy texture, and your friends and family will love it!

Easy to prepare and ready to serve in a matter of minutes, this recipe can be perfectly paired with plantain chips, or raw vegetables, and is equally as mouthwatering dolloped on top of a taco salad or slathered on a burger! It’s versatility is only limited by your imagination! As a matter of fact, by tweaking this recipe slightly, it also makes for a delectable salad dressing!


  • 2 medium avocados - must be ripe!

  • ½ lemon, juiced

  • 1 clove garlic

  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil

  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt


  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and several times until all ingredients are smooth, scraping down the sides as needed

  • Serve and enjoy!

Note: If you want to use this recipe as a salad dressing, add a little water, a tablespoon at a time, until you get a pourable consistency as desired.
