This delicious homemade avocado sauce is lush, thick, and creamy and is dairy-free! Use as a sauce or a dressing this avocado sauce is very versatile.
With its many uses this avocado sauce is delicious poured over poached eggs, can be mixed through chicken dishes, pasta dishes, drizzled over nachos or tacos, used as a spread for crackers or toast, or as a dip to go with your appetizers.
Unlike the avocado dressings that you find in the store, this tasty sauce has no additives, dairy or sugar, but still manages to taste full of creamy avocado goodness.
Aside from being downright delicious, avocados contain around 20 vitamins and minerals and are an excellent source of healthy fat.
Not only do avocados contain high levels of antioxidants but due to their fat content, they can help you absorb nutrients from other plant-based foods that require lipids (fat) for absorption. This makes them particularly beneficial for those eating a plant-based diet.
It is all very well various fruit and vegetables being high in certain nutrients but if the nutrients cannot be absorbed then they are of no use!
Fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E, and carotenoids all need lipids (fat) to be absorbed. And what you may ask are carotenoids? They are the plant pigment in various fruit and vegetables such as carrots, tomatoes, and sweet potatoes that give them their red, yellow, and orange colour.
Why do we want these in our diet? Because carotenoids can be turned into powerful antioxidants to support health.
So in a nutshell ....matching up carrot sticks (high in carotenoids) with an avocado dip (a good source of healthy fat) is a match made in heaven to absorb the nutrition from the carrot.
This recipe is for a thick creamy avocado sauce but you can add more water as desired to make it thinner to use as a dressing to go over salads.
