Eat This, Not That: Avocado Cream Sauce

Who doesn’t love avocados? They are so nutritious and, of course, great tasting! Avocados are loaded with vitamins and minerals and are a great source of healthy fats and fiber that keep us satisfied and energized throughout the day. They are also a very versatile food and can be used in so many dishes. This recipe makes a great alternative to traditional cream sauces. Instead of using heavy cream, which is loaded with unhealthy fats and not very nutritious, we are using avocado and greek yogurt. These ingredients are, instead, going to provide healthy fats, essential nutrients, fiber, and probiotics to make a delicious and healthy cream sauce you can put on anything!

 

What you need:

  • 1 avocado
  • ½ cup of plain greek yogurt
  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste

What you do:

  • Peel and pit avocado
  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor until smooth
  • Serve over pasta, spaghetti squash, or grilled chicken or salmon

For a vegan option, use 2-3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in place of the greek yogurt!
