  • 1 ripe avocado peeled and seeded
  • Pinch fine sea salt Himalayan
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream cream only from top of a can of good coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro more for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp Sichuan peppercorns, crushed OPTIONAL
  • 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar, reduced until thick enough for drizzle OPTIONAL


  1. Blend everything except cilantro in a blender or food processor. Stir in minced cilantro.
  2. Remove from blender. Garnish with extra cilantro. If you refrigerate for use later, crema will thicken significantly.

  4. Optional: crush a pinch of whole Sichuan peppercorns and sprinkle on top of crema.
