Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip


Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip on 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 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 made this tonight for my family and it was fantastic! We first had it as an appetizer with baby carrots, radishes, and pita chips for dipping. Then I made Southwest Burgers for dinner, and used the leftover dip as a spread – no need for cheese or any other condiment. So delicious! Thanks so mucho for the great recipe – it will quickly become a staple in my household.

    This looks delish!! Can’t wait to try. This may be a dumb question but I was wondering how long this dip will last if I bring it to a party- will the avacados turn the dip brown? Sorry for my lack of avacados knowledge- I can’t wait to make this!

    • Two Peas replied: — July 28th, 2012 @ 11:38 am

      The lime juice should keep the dip from turning brown. Enjoy!

    Whipped this up last night because I needed a quick appetizer for a small gathering. It was gone in a snap. Next time I’ll make more–it was great, and so easy.

    I’m making this tomorrow, I’m sure it will taste fab!
    Do you mind if I put it onto my food blog?

  15. J — August 16, 2012 @ 9:20 am

    I would like to make this, for a party. How far, in advance, can I make it? Will it brown? Thanks!

    • Two Peas replied: — August 16th, 2012 @ 8:41 pm

      You can make it a few hours in advance. The lime keeps it from browning. I keep it in the fridge for a few days and it is fine to eat, but I would make it fresh for a party:)

    Just made this, and it is very creamy, smooth and fresh! I will add, though, that when the recipe calls for fresh lime juice, try to abide. I mistakenly thought I could get away with using ReaLime. NOT the same at all in this great dip. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Loved it!
