Avocado Crema

Avocado Crema is made from ripe avocados transformed into a luscious sauce with the help of citrusy lime and fresh herbs. You can use a food processor but it’s best in a high speed blender to whip a lot of air into it and make sure everything is creamy and airy.

Avocado crema is a dairy free sauce and perfect for drizzling on tacos or enchiladas before serving, but we also love it as a dip for veggies and shrimp. If you thin it out with more lime juice it can even be a salad dressing.
