I love party food during summer. It is so much easier to eat fresh finger food when it is hot outside. No plate, no cutlery. Simple. I almost made an avocado dip recipe every single day last week. I know it looks excessive but I love avocado so much that I can’t stop eating those big, creamy avocado this summer. I must tell, New Zealand Avocado are the best and there are very addictive. Their rich creamy and smooth texture is out of this world. I do not remember eating such lovely avocado back in France.

Ingredients

SPINACH AVOCADO DIP

  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves blanched in boiling water for 2 minutes, squeezed, drained - about 20 large leaves of fresh spinach
  • 2 large ripe avocado about 2 cup of mashed avocado
  • 1 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander chopped
  • 3/4 cup dairy free coconut yogurt or yogurt of your choice if not dairy free
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 3 tablespoon Extra Virgin Avocado Oil or vegetable oil of your choice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon Extra virgin avocado oil to drizzle on top

Mexican salsa

Instructions

  • Trim the fresh spinach leaves. Place them onto a large mixing bowl and cover with boiling water. Cover. Set aside for 2 minutes
  • Drain the spinach, rinse with cold water and using your hands squeeze the cooked/blanched spinach leaves to remove all the extra water. Eventually, pat dry onto two sheets of absorbent paper to remove all the extra water.
  • In a food processor, with S blade attachment, add the spinach, mashed ripe avocado, crushed garlic, coriander, coconut yogurt, lime juice,avocado oil, salt and pepper.
  • Process until smooth - about 2 minutes on high speed. 
  • Transfer into a bowl. Drizzle extra virgin avocado oil on top if you like.
  • Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving or before adding the Mexican salsa.

MEXICAN SALSA

  • In a mixing bowl add the red beans and chopped tomatoes.
  • Combine with avocado oil, crushed garlic and lime juice.
  • Sprinkle the salsa on top of the dip with extra chopped coriander.
  • Serve with a pack of brown rice chips.
Yogurt option: for a dairy free recipe use coconut yogurt or soy yogurt. If you don't eat dairy free you can use plain Greek yogurt (full fat or low fat)
Herbs:  The recipe works perfectly with any fresh herbs you like. I used Coriander - called cilantro in US - but mint, basil or parsley works well. 
Oil options: if you don't have avocado oil, any vegetable oil works well, the healthiest alternative will be extra virgin olive oil.
Storage: store well in the fridge up to 1 week in an airtight container. The surface of the dip may change slightly in color - avocado oxidation - simple give a good stir and enjoy.

    • Thanks for the lovely input ! I am French and I am always confused between both terminology. Now it is clear ! Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.


  1. Was delicious until I added the coconut yogurt, which I was not careful about when I purchased it and it was full of sugar, which totally changed the taste of the dip and not for the better. I am now busy adding more of the other ingredients to counteract it. Wish me luck!

    • Hi Stacey, I am sorry you didn’t buy the right coconut yogurt. As I mentioned in this recipe I am using dairy free coconut yogurt made of 100% coconut cream. It is a plain, unsweetened vegan yogurt. I hope you managed to get this dip right at the end and you will try it again with the right yogurt next time. Merry Christmas and happy holidays. XOXO Carine.


  2. This is soooo good. We love the addition of the beans on the dip and multiple colors of tomatoes makes it all so inviting! My new favorite dip!


  3. I’m trying to figure out the calories to add to My Fitness Pal – Do you know the calorie content or how many servings this recipe makes aprox?

    Thanks

  4. @ the end of your instructions you tell us to “Sprinkle the salsa on top of the tortilla and add extra chopped coriander”. Should we assume you mean ‘chopped cilantro’? the two are quite different in taste. This recipe sounds amazing…cannot wait to try it.

    • Hi Kat, No I really meant fresh coriander and as you can see on the first photography where I shared the ingredients picture, I used fresh coriander with avocado. This combo is absolutely amazing and I hope you try the recipe! You’ll love it :D. Enjoy! Carine.


      • Fresh coriander and cilantro are the same plant – both referring to the leaves of the plant versus the seeds which are called coriander seeds.

        • Thanks for clarifying Megan. I am French and we use the same word for both – coriandre. I am always a bit confused of the terminology in English so it is great to have a reminder 🙂 Enjoy the blog recipes! Carine.
