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 sandwich, avocado 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 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 gave made this several times now, and everyone LOVES it.
I love avocado! It’s perfect!
How does this keep? Des it get brown. I really want to try it, but I am watching what I eat so I know I can’t eat the entire thing at once… Or rather shouldn’t 😉
Found this on Pinterest, thanks for sharing! Super easy to make and really tasty. Love the creamy texture. Excellent served with pita chips.
look great and delicious.
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!
How long do you think this would keep if refrigerated?
Made this today – so tasty! The cumin adds a nice twist and goes perfectly with the Greek yogurt.
Seriously yummy! I would add the green chilis to this to give it a little extra kick 🙂
I made it today and it was awesome, very light. Didn’t change anything in the recipe.
I found this on Pinterest over the weekend and I must say….this is amazing. I was so thrilled to have all the ingredients on hand. I halved the recipe since it was just me, and I ate the entire amount. I have a blog that I review Pinterest recipes and have your website linked to the recipe! Thanks for sharing, it is now my go to guacamole/avocado dip.

Thank you! I will try to get them to remove it!
This is the best dip I’ve ever made – and the easiest too!
OMG this is beyond AMAZING! As a guac lover I was hesitant to try this but I just may love this more than guac! Thank you for this incredibly delicious recipe 🙂
Does this turn brown quickly? Just wondering how far ahead I can make this? Thanks!

This was delicious! My entire family LOVED it. It came out light and fluffy and full of flavor. Thank you 🙂
Can I make this a day ahead??
This was great and I love the upped protein factor from the Greek yogurt. My kids like it too and they’re not normally fond of avocado.
Can I use Cream cheese or sour cream instead of Greek yogurt?. it is difficult to find plain Greek yogurt in my country
Sour cream would be the better option!
Allergic to jalapenos here. Will be trying it with mustard, perhaps wasabi paste. Great combo and Love the green color!
Please use full fat greek yoghurt- fat is an essential nutrient.
I made this today for lunch and my husband and I loved it! Delicious and healthy! Thank you so much for sharing!
Just made this, it’s alright, it just tastes like it needs something else! I added cayenne and chili powder, and next time I’d add less lime juice
Hello. And Bye.
Made this last night. BEST DIP EVER. We loved it.
Yay! I love this one too!
I never leave reviews for anything but I felt the need for this DELICIOUS dip!! This is my first time working with avocados and I love them. So easy, healthy, and delicious! I used this dip as a topping on quinoa black bean tacos, which was divine. Ill share the link!

wow! This Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip looks is awesome. I have not tried, I can not resist the Enticement to see! thanks for share…
This dip looks yummy and it will taste great with some tacos for sure 🙂
Will the avocado turn brown if mixed with yogurt?
Wanting to make this for an Easter gathering tomorrow…if I make it ahead of time, will it brown like guacamole and plain avocados do?
It will brown a little. Place plastic wrap directly on top to help from browning.
Delicious. Thanks for such a tasty and healthy recipe.
