Avocado Dip
This amazingly refreshing 5-minute avocado dip has a super creamy texture and is made with only 5 Ingredients. Just mash the avocado and then mix all the other ingredients and your dip is ready. It looks similar to guacamole (Mexican style avocado dip) but it is not. This dip has one hidden ingredient yogurt which makes it extra creamy and refreshing. Serve it with crackers, fresh-cut veggies, chips, bread, etc. in the afternoon snack, or use it as a spread on tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, sandwiches, avocado toast, etc.

1½ tablespoons Lemon/Lime Juice
Salt, to taste
1 tablespoon finely chopped Spring Onion (only green part) or Cilantro (coriander leaves) or Mint Leaves, optional
  1. Make sure the avocado is ripe (which is dark purple and only a little soft to the touch, don’t choose which is too soft to touch).
  2. Cut it into half and scoop out the avocado pulp using a spoon into a medium bowl. (Remove the pit and keep it aside.)
  3. Mash the avocado pulp using a fork or a spoon until creamy. Add A pinch of garlic powder, 1½ tablespoons lemon/lime juice, and salt to taste.
