Recipe: Whipped Avocado Dip

Whipped-Avocado-Dip-final

Summertime is all about friends and family dropping by to spend lazy afternoons in the garden or by the pool. When I had unexpected (but not unwelcome) company at my door, I needed a quick and delicious appetizer pronto. After looking through my fridge and pantry, I was able to find two avocados, a lime, and some pita chips. With the help of my food processor, I was able to create a creamy, dreamy avocado dip that wowed my guests but was still super easy to put together!

Whipped Avocado Dip allows the avocado to really shine, highlighting its mild sweetness and creamy texture. With only three ingredients needed, this dip will definitely become your unexpected summer guest go-to!

This is how you make it. Just toss the flesh of two ripe avocados into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade.

And add a BIG squeeze of lime juice (about half a large lime). Then all you need to do is turn the machine on high and blend until smooth. Taste the dip and adjust seasonings as needed.
