Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip

Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip on www.twopeasandtheirpod.com An easy and healthy dip!

Avocados and Greek yogurt (and cookies) are staples in my diet. I can’t live without them. I usually eat a yogurt in the morning or mix it in with my Green Smoothie. I love avocados in any form-guacamole grilled cheese sandwichavocado pasta,  salads, and even ice cream. I am an avocado fanatic! I combined my two favorites to make this Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip. This dip makes a great party appetizer or every day snack.

This dip is so easy to make. I wonder why I don’t make it every day. Oh wait, I know why, it is because I have no self control and would eat the entire bowl all by myself, plus the giant bag of pita chips. We always buy the huge bag of pita chips at Costco or Sam’s Club-we have to because it is a good deal, right? Just like I have to keep eating them until they are gone:) There really should be an addiction warning label on the bag!

Anyways, to make the dip I combined plain Chobani Greek yogurt, avocados, garlic, cilantro, lime, and ground cumin in our Blendtec blender and mixed until smooth. I seasoned it with salt and pepper, grabbed my pita chips, and got dipping. This dip is also great with tortilla tips, cut up veggies, or even great as a sandwich spread. The dip tastes similar to guacamole, but really creamy and really, really delicious! And the dip is green so it is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day next week! You don’t even have to get out the green food coloring:)

I hope you enjoy this Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip as much as I do. It is one of my favorite healthy dips to make and eat!

    Love Greek yogurt…will try your recipe. We always need new ways to eat avocados since we live on an avocado farm! We’ve been slicing them on soup this week. Your dip will be a refreshing change!

    What a fabulous idea for dip! This looks so creamy, light and delicious. I’ve been wanting to dry a guacamole hummus for a while now, but will also be trying this yogurt dip. Thanks for sharing!

    Looks delicious! I make a similar type of dip, only I use sour cream. I love the creamy, smooth texture and the pretty mint-green color. I’m a total avocado/guacamole/pita chip addict too…and I’m not ashamed. ;) xo

    Love this idea! And yes, pita chips should absolutely have an addiction warning label on them. Especially the cinnamon sugar variety!!!

    I can’t wait to go to the grocery store and pick up some avocados to try this dip! Looks so yummy! I also need to make a trip to Coscto, thanks for reminding me that I should add pita chips to the list!

    I am always looking for different dips, avocado is used in so many, but just adding one different ingredient it becomes into a complete different one. Never try adding yogurt, but it’s healthy than adding mayo.

    Looks delicious. I love anything with avocados.

    I just made a dip/sauce almost exactly like this the other night after seeing Bev’s tacos and the sauce she put on them which is also similar. I poured it all over a skirt steak and it was unbelievably delicious. We also ate it with pita chips straight out of the food processor so I know what you mean on the self-control part. I have none either ;)

    I just made this for dinner tonight in a tortilla wrap… I was in an avocado heaven!!!
    It took me all the way to Mexico… or at least to Ugly Betty’s house.

    I can’t stop thinking about the creaminess, and I definitely can’t wait to make it again some other time.

    Are they Stacy’s pita chips? If so they are sooooo delicious! My best friend has a costco membership and they get them all the time, I always eat so much hummus and pita when I go to her house! I’ll have to make and take this dip next time I go over!

    This is my kind of St. Paddy’s Day recipe – healthy, plus filled with avocado (one of my favorite ingredients). I’m afraid I’d be tempted to eat the whole bowl, too.

    Who needs artery clogging mayo-infused dips when you can have healthy fats, avocado, and protein all in one! This sounds so good!
