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 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!

  1. I make a similar recipe using low-fat sour cream. I’m going to try your recipe using yogurt…it looks delicious!

  2. 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!

  3. 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

  4. Sounds delish can’t wait to try this! I actually already have eveything so looks like I know what I’m snacking on today 🙂

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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 😉

  8. Whoa, this looks amazing! With the warmer weather right around the corner, we’re all about grabbing some chips and heading out to the patio to enjoy this avocado dip. Ole! We’ve just pinned to our Chobaniac Creations Pinterest board, and please feel free to email me if ya need a fresh supply of CHO for more recipe inspiration 🙂

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. Thank you for your recipe! I made this tonight for a get together tomorrow. I love it, and it’s healthy!! For ppl looking to make this, it is def different… Has quite a
    Twang with the Greek yogurt but is super good with the pita
    Chips… I used whole grain pita chips…. Also had more jalapeño and doubled the recipe since I was taking it to a party. Thanks so much for this recipe!

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. wow, well we are 3 for 3 with your recipes!! yesterday i made the lemon orzo salad and stuffed portobello’s… today, the creamy yogurt avocado dip!
    this dip was AMAZING!! perfect balance of everything creamy! the only thing i would change next time, is that i will make a double batch!!!

    I love your recipes!! So glad that I came across this website!

    😉

  17. This looks fabulous. Such a perfect recipe for Green Day tomorrow! Thank you for sharing; your recipes always look incredible and you both do such a great job with your photography, as well. Just found out you’ll be at the Dole Conference, too and I’m so excited to meet you!
    Have a great weekend.

  18. I made this, this past weekend and it was delicious!! I added some hot sauce to mine. thanks for sharing this recipe!

  19. I made the creamy avocado dip, very good. I live in south Texas and cumin and jalapeno are staples in my kitchen. I make lots of guacamole, but this is the first time i have used yogurt with my avocado. Thanks for sharing.

  20. I made this for work today and it is almost gone…and it is not even 10am!!!! The only think I changed was I only used 1/3 cup Greek yogurt. Thanks for the recipe!!!

  21. This is a fabulous dressing for taco salad!! I make mine with extra lean ground turkey and lots of fresh tomatoes and diced peppers. YUM! (and healthy!)

  22. This is totally fantastic!!!! I’m having some right now with carrots and I must say, I’ll never long for Ranch dressing again!!!

  23. I just made this dip with dannon vanilla yogurt and it’s very good! It has a little sweetness to it that I like.

  24. i was looking for a simple yet delicious avocado dip…this receipe was mind blowing and very simple to make it in 5 mins & tasted so yummy. Thanks 🙂

  25. Made this about fifteen minutes ago and LOVE it. So quick, easy, and, most importantly, DELICIOUS. Thank you! 🙂

  26. 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?

  27. This looks really good. I’ll definitely give this a try.
    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.

  28. Loves great! I will be making this tomorrow…does it brown easily?? Wondering how early I can prepare it ahead of time.

  29. Oh my gosh, this is fantastic guacamole. Huge fan of greek yogourt so this is perfect! and I would eat the whole thing if i made it and didnt have guests, thank you SO much!

  30. 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.

  31. 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!

  32. 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.

  33. This look so delicious, am going to make this for my work on friday for a birthday party, I will let you know how everyone like it, thank you for shaaring

    1. 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:)

  34. I found this recipe on Pinterest. Super easy and really tasty. Love the creamy texture. Excellent served with pita chips. Thanks for sharing!

  35. 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 😉

  36. Found this on Pinterest, thanks for sharing! Super easy to make and really tasty. Love the creamy texture. Excellent served with pita chips.

  37. 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!

  38. 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.

  40. 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 🙂

  41. 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.

  42. Can I use Cream cheese or sour cream instead of Greek yogurt?. it is difficult to find plain Greek yogurt in my country

  45. I made this today for lunch and my husband and I loved it! Delicious and healthy! Thank you so much for sharing!

  46. 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

  48. 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?
