Creamy Dreamy Avocados!

   I've been a bit obsessed with avocados recently - okay fine, I'm always obsessed with avocados! (It must be a California thing?)  Lately I find myself buying them in bulk and having one (or more) a day.  I usually put them in my salads and wraps, as is, but I also love to make guacamole and other dips with them as well.
   I came up with this recipe in a pinch when my sis-in-law was coming over.  I had cut up a bunch of veggies and realized that I had nothing to offer as a dip.  Not everyone enjoys dipping their veggies in mustard or salsa the way that I do!  Anyway, I've been making this dip a lot lately and I'm not even close to being sick of it yet!  
Read on for my super yummy (and easy!) recipe...


Creamy Dreamy Avocado Dip
Makes about 4 cups
Ingredients:
2 Organic zucchinis, chopped
1 - 2 avocados (depending on the size)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 - 2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 Tbs. raw tahini
3 Tbs. nutritional yeast
pinch cayenne pepper
salt to taste
1/4 cup of water (optional to thin it out, if needed)

Directions:
Cut the avocado in half, peel it and chop the flesh into pieces and put it into a blender.  Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy.  This is not a thick dip which makes it perfect as a dressing in salads and wraps as well.

Perfect for dipping veggies and crackers!

So yum!

Sweet potato fries?  Yes, dip them!

So good in Romaine Wraps!
Enjoy!
Love,
Ves xx
