Avacado Dip/Dressing - Finally One That is Good for Me!

I experimented with various avacado dressing recipes online, and came up with this one, which is truly delightful!

2 avocados
4 cloves garlic, pressed
1/4 c. water
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup chopped, fresh dill (or 1 1/3 tbsp. dried - but I haven't tried this)
1 packet of Stevia sweetener (I used Stevia in the Raw)
1/4 cup lemon juice
salt to taste

Cut avacados in half around the pit.  Discard pit.  Carve out avacado meat with a thin spoon.  Mash with potato masher until creamed well.  Add the rest of the ingredients.  Stir well, and enjoy!  Nathan says that it tastes like a party dip.  We tried it with chips and it was marvelous!  Perhaps I will add more water to make it more pourable for a dressing.


  1. Here you are! I still check in faithfully, friend, and send little whispered prayers heavenward for you and your sweet family.
    This recipe looks absolutely delightful! Husband adores avocados, and, therefore, guacamole, so he'll love this! I personally like the idea of adding dill... you're so smart! :)
    Thanks for sharing! xoxo

  2. Oh, p.s... you don't have to feel obligated to blog, of course, but popping in like you do with a recipe, or a book recommend, or a family story is just great with me! I appreciate your sharing, Danielle.
