My mother-in-law recently gave me a teeny tiny avocado masher, which set this recipe in motion. Not only is this avocado whip easy to make, but it adds a bit of luxury to a simple vegetable dish and the flavor variety I crave.
Avocado whip is about as versatile as it gets. You can add a dollop to breakfast sweet potatoes and eggs, salad, stir fry, burgers, quinoa, and more. This recipe is also easily manipulated to change the flavor. Try using different fresh herbs: mint, basil, cilantro, or parsley. Switch it up with creative spice combinations, like oregano, cayenne, and paprika.
This recipe can be made in minutes. It is packed with vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Anyone on the Whole Life Challenge can enjoy this recipe with guilt-free pleasure — and for those of you who haven’t tried the Challenge yet, this will give you a “taste” of just how tasty healthy eating can be.
Easy Avocado Whip
You can add a dollop to breakfast sweet potatoes and eggs, salad, stir fry, burgers, quinoa, and more.
- 1 ripe avocado mashed or whipped smooth
- 1/4 lime squeezed
- Pink Himalayan salt pinch
- Fresh ground black pepper pinch
- Chopped fresh herbs for garnish
Wash the outside of the avocado and carefully slice it in half the long way using a sharp knife. Avocados have big, round pits in the center so don’t expect your knife to sail all the way through.
Twist the halves apart. Hover the knife blade a few inches over the pit and quickly bring it down. It will stick into the pit and you’ll be able to easily remove it from the avocado flesh.
Use a spoon to scoop the avocado into a bowl with high walls.
Add lime, salt, and pepper.
Mash everything together until it is creamy. Note: If you don’t have an avocado masher, you can use a fork, a whisk, or even a potato masher to get the job done. You could also toss it all into a small blender for an extremely smooth whip.
Add the whip to your meal of choice and garnish with fresh herbs.
