EASY AVOCADO SPREAD RECIPE
Are you out of cilantro and craving guacamole? This easy spread or dip recipe is one way to get some more avocado in your diet! Combining ripe avocados with healthy fats and the acidity of lemon, onions, and Tabasco results in a zesty, smooth spread. Perfect for a man-loving sammich, or it will go perfectly with any chip or veggie since it’s the perfect creamy, indulgent appetizer dip. You can adapt this for a food processor or “regular” blender, but using a Blendtec or Vitamix blender guarantees a creamy dip!! I use a Vitamix, and made 1.5 times the recipe amount so there was enough for the whole family.

Depending on the jar that you have, this recipe may be able to be halved or may need to be made in larger quantities to blend properly. The Blendtec Twister jar could easily do one serving of this, while with Vitamix 64oz jar you may have to 1.5x or 2x the recipe.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF AVOCADO
Avocado is a high-fat food, but in a good way! The fats in avocado are unusual and have research-based benefits. Phytosterols like beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stimasterol reduce inflammation, especially for those who have arthritis. Avocado’s plyhydroxylated fatty alcohols (PFAs) are hard to find elsewhere in nature and are also anti-inflammatory! Avocados also contain an unusually high amount of oleic acid, which helps our digestive tract absorb fat-soluble nutrients like carotenoids and lower risk of heart disease. Avocado’s unusual plant-based fats are similar to other high-fat plant foods in that they have unusual health benefits!
