Homemade Dip is Better!
It seems that every time I make a dip or dressing, people ask me for the recipe. Thing is most homemade dips, and dressings are very easy to prepare, and they taste so much better!
For this dip, I simplified the ingredients even more than this older Avocado Coconut Dip/Mayo recipe.
Whether you want to use it as a dip, a vegan mayo or a dressing is up to you. For a pourable dressing, you might want to add a touch more water to thin it out further.
Watch Out Guacamole!
After using this dip on tortilla bread to make quesadillas, I would have to say that yummy guacamole has competition!
Mind you that when I make quesadillas I often add salsa so in the end, the ingredients are similar, but quesadillas are so much quicker to prep if you have some of this avocado dip on hand.
This avocado dip is amazing with fresh crudités, salads, sandwiches, wraps, and also wonderful as a dipping sauce for some of your favourite dippable goods!
When I say dippable goods, I mean things like veggie sticks, nuggets, breadsticks, pizza slices, roasted fries, chips, crackers—yum, I’m so hungry now!
This recipe is already pretty simplistic but there are a few ways you could tweak it to make it your own.
A great example is instead of fresh cilantro you could use baby spinach to make as delicious and nutritious.
If you don’t have green onions, replace them with another type of onion or just omit them altogether. The dip also includes fresh garlic which will help for the flavour.
Don’t be afraid to play around with the ratios of the ingredients. If you like your dip with a stronger lemon flavour or if you love it saltier, by all means, add more.

The last recipe on Fresh is Real was the Maple Lemon Sourdough Cake.
It might seem like an intimidating gluten-free and vegan cake recipe to bake but if you already have a gluten-free sourdough starter on hand, it’s a great one to try! Included are three baking options to help you along the way.

Fresh is Real’s famous Avocado Dip is creamy and easy to make! It’s nutritious, gluten-free, vegan and allergen-friendly! A quick 10-ingredient junk-free dip to make for special gatherings as it meets a wide variety of dietary restriction
1–1/2 to 2 ripe avocados*
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (juice from half a lemon)
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 garlic clove
2 green onions, white part only**
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon fine grey sea salt***
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Scoop out the ripe avocado and transfer to NUTRiBULLET or high-speed Vitamix. Place all remaining ingredients in the same blender container and blend until smooth.
Transfer dip to a nice clear glass jar/bowl/dish and serve or refrigerate until ready to eat.
Decorate with reserved chopped onion greens. Enjoy with salads, rice dishes, crudités or with crackers and chips!
The Avocado Dip will keep in the refrigerator for a few days because of the added lemon and lime juice.
If you find your dip too thick, add a little more water to thin it out when you’re blending it.
Are you on an oil-free diet? No problem! Try the dip without oil, the avocado itself contains a nice amount of good-for-you fats. Just replace the oil called for in the recipe with a little more water.
*Two small ones or one large one should suffice.
**Reserve onion greens to decorate dip. Chop then sprinkle over top of the serving bowl.
***Start with 1/4 teaspoon and taste after you blend. Add more if needed, up to 1/2 teaspoon total.
