Your New Fave Condiment: Avocado Crema

 

I put that $!&*@! on everything!

Rich, creamy, and packed with good-for-you, disease-fighting, gut-friendly ingredients. This avocado crema is about to become your new favourite condiment.

Whip up a jar on the weekend and you can use this crema in a thousand different, healthy ways:

  • as a dip for your favourite veggies (it’s a perfect dip for kiddo lunches)
  • as a spread on sandwiches and wraps
  • as a spread on seed crackers or rice cakes
  • as a garnish for tacos, lettuce wraps, and fajitas
  • as a garnish for chili
  • as a drizzle for pork, chicken or beef
  • as a soup... OK, not really… but it’s tempting to sneak a spoonful straight out of the jar

Add some healthy fats — like the special disease-fighting fats in this avocado crema — to your snacks and meals, and you’ll feel full on fewer calories, and stay full for longer after eating.
