You will love this Avocado, Yoghurt and Mint Dip. It is light, silky smooth and refreshing as well as being incredibly easy to make. Here I have combined two of my favourite ingredients, creamy avocado and tangy Greek yoghurt. I have boosted their flavour with the addition of lime juice and mint. If you’re looking for a healthy snack or appetiser, this is the recipe for you.
1largeavocado - peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
½cupGreek yoghurt (plain)
2teaspoonlime juice - freshly squeezedSee Notes 1 and 2
¼cupmint leaves - finely chopped
sea salt - to tasteSee Notes 2 and 3
In the bowl of a small blender or food processor, place the avocado, Greek yoghurt and lime juice. – See Note 4
Blend the ingredients to combine. They should be smooth and creamy. Add the finely sliced mint leaves to the bowl of the food processor.Add salt flakes to taste, and briefly blend again.
Turn the avocado mixture into a serving bowl.Top with a few mint leaves for garnish.Serve with crackers, corn chips, toasted pita bread or crudites.The dip is best made shortly before serving.
To obtain the bright, fresh flavour of lime juice, I prefer fresh lime over the bottled variety.
Adjust the flavours to suit your palate. Add more salt or lime juice if necessary.
I like to use sea salt flakes. For the best flavour, use sea salt; avoid iodised or table salt.
If you don’t have a blender or food processor, place the avocado in a medium bowl and mash. Add the yoghurt, lime juice and salt. It will not have the creaminess which is obtained by using a blender or food processor, but it will still be delicious.
