Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip

This recipe is such a great alternative to hummus. It contains minimal and simple ingredients to create such a healthy dip. The best part about this dip is that it doesn’t brown. Most avocado dishes will brown the next day, but this dip stayed green! If it does brown a tiny bit, your best bet is to add a little lime juice and mix.

Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip


1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
2 ripe avocados, peeled and seeded
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
1 tablespoon finely chopped seeded jalapeño pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
Pita chips, tortilla chips, cut up veggies-for serving


1. Place the yogurt, avocados, garlic, cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice, and cumin in a blender or food processor. Mix until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

2. Scrape dip into a serving bowl and serve with pita chips, tortilla chips, or cut up veggies.
