2-Minute Creamy Avocado Dip ALL DAY EVERY DAY.

Alright, friends. The time has come for me to share the most basic of all recipes with you.

Most of my meals in the last month have involved this dip. I am obsessed with it. It’s not fancy. It’s not super impressive. It’s not anything you’ve never heard of. And it’s not even like I’m using this IN my meal (we have magic green sauce for that, duh).

I’m just regularly snacking on this while I’m making dinner because it’s really, really simple… and REALLY, REALLY GOOD.

Even though this is ridiculously easy, I feel part of my job is to just show you what I love eating in my real life, so here it is. This is what I love eating in real life. 2-Minute Creamy Avocado Dip, coming right up.

Avocados cut in half.

How To Make This Avocado Dip Happen

We start by mashing avocados. This takes approximately one minute, depending on your ninja-level mastery of avocado mashing.

And now, we stir in some garlic powder, salt, and just a nice big thwap of plain Greek yogurt (anyone else see that episode? thank u for the pro tip, Antoni ♡).

And now, a little lime juice.

What I Love About This Recipe

This avocado dip is ultra-creamy, with a boost of tang and protein and some friendly probiotics from the yogurt. The flavor is tangy, salty, and super satisfying. It’s something that can materialize almost instantaneously when you need something happy to eat STAT. You don’t even need to dirty up a cutting board (unless you want cilantro, which, yes, is delicious).

Also worth noting that this avocado dip spreads nicely on tacos – kind of like a mash-up between sour cream and straight avocado. Yum. Personally, I recommend this dip + these tacos.

I mean, you definitely have two minutes, right? I think the time has come.

2-Minute Avocado Dip: FAQs

I want to add a little bit of heat. What do you suggest?

Yum! If you like spicy, a quick sprinkle of cayenne or a chopped-up jalapeño can add some heat.

Would cilantro be good in this?

Sure! Add some chopped fresh cilantro if you want! I like it with cilantro, but I often eat this avocado dip without cilantro so I don’t have to wash a cutting board.

How do I know when my avocados are ripe?

The avocado should still be somewhat firm when you press on it gently. The skin should be dark, not green. If it’s green, let it sit at room temp for a day or two to darken.
