How To Make Spinach Avocado Dip
This spinach dip is very easy to make, it only takes a few healthy ingredients.
- Spinach – I prefer to use fresh baby spinach for this recipe. You can use regular spinach as well, but it’ll be stronger in taste.
- Avocado – Pick perfectly ripe avocados. If they’re too young, the dip will be a tad bitter. If too ripe, it will have a bit of a foul taste. To know if your avocado is ready, it should be soft to the touch but not mushy, and removing the stem should reveal a bright green flesh.
- Cilantro – also known as coriander, cilantro is a fresh herb that 50% of the population cannot like because their taste buds detect a soap-like taste. If that’s your case, use chopped parsley instead.
- Yogurt – I prefer to use coconut yogurt as it keeps the dip dairy-free and vegan, but it also brings a nice tangy taste.
- Lime Juice – or lemon juice, pick your favorite. Follow my tips on how to squeeze a lime without a juicer.
- Avocado Oil – or any vegetable oil you like.
Making The Dip
I love party food during summer. It’s so much easier to eat fresh finger food when it’s hot outside.
Making this avocado dip is ridiculously easy, it’s done in about 5 minutes.
First, trim, wash, and rinse the spinach. I also recommend blanching it in boiling water for a few minutes. It makes it more digestible and easier to blend.
Drain the spinach and squeeze the leaves as hard as possible to extract the excess water.
Combine all the ingredients in the jug of a high-speed blender and blend them for about 2 minutes.
Transfer the Spinach Avocado Dip to a serving bowl and drizzle some avocado oil on the top to prevent it from darkening.
You can store this spinach avocado dip for up to 6 or 7 days in the fridge.
It stores better when there’s a thin layer of oil on the top as it prevents the avocado from oxidizing and darkening.
I also recommend keeping some plastic wrapping on top of the bowl and as close as possible to the dip to limit the air in contact with the dip.
If some oxidation occurs, give the dip a good stir or remove the thin top layer of darker avocado.
