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!

    I’m a nurse and I made this over the weekend for my co-workers (and Me) and it was so good! Tangy, creamy and healthy. Definitely the perfect way to end a long 36 hour weekend together at the hospital, and I didn’t feel so bad putting it out since it contains some protein and healthy fats. Thank you!

      Glad you and your co-workers enjoyed the dip!

    I cannot get enough avocados at this time of year! What a great new way of eating them!

    I love avocados – I just wish I lived somewhere where they were a little more reasonably priced for a longer portion of the year! I also have an issue not eating an entire batch of dip by myself in one sitting…it’s a problem.

    This dip could be used in so many ways…I’ll try it soon…thanks for sharing:)

    I made this today and really liked it – thanks! The only change I’ll make next time is adding another avocado because there was more yogurt taste than avocado taste, but then again, I used smallish avocados. Yum.

    Do you know how long it will last in the fridge? (if I manage to not eat it all of course) Could I make it today for a gathering tomorrow night or is it best when it’s fresh?

    Hey, have you ever tried an avocado smoothie? They’re delicious and creamy, and really good when you’re eating spicy food. It cools the palate.
