Creamy Dairy Free Avocado Sauce (Paleo & Vegan)

Creamy Dairy Free Avocado Sauce

Creamy Dairy Free Avocado Sauce – This delicious homemade avocado sauce is awesome, it is lush, thick and creamy, tastes good and is dairy free! What I love about this sauce or dressing is it’s so versatile – it 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.


This recipe is for a thick creamy sauce but you can add more water as desired to make it thinner to use as a dressing to go over salad’s.

Aside from being downright delicious, avocado’s 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 form 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 carrot’s, tomatoes and sweet potatoes that give them their red, yellow and orange colour.  We want these in our diet as 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.

      May 29, 2018 at 5:33 pm Hi Britta! It will depend on how the ripe the avocado you use is, it should keep for 2-3 days in an airtight container.
