Avocado & Lime Vegetable Dip (Autoimmune Paleo)

Share it Please


I try not to snack. I really, really do. And when I say snack, I mean to eat when I'm not hungry. Or to eat shortly after a meal, when my body doesn't need any more energy. This is not to be confused with eating a small portion when you're actually hungry between meals. It's something that I struggle with fairly often, and I suspect that many of you do as well. Food is comforting, we all know that. But I think it's important that we find healthier ways to comfort out emotions- like yoga, or any other physical activity. When I get in a snacky mood, I can just go crazy on some fruit. Like, three-granny-smith-apples-in-a-row crazy... yeah. So, one of my recent goals is to just have ONE piece of fruit a day, and for that fruit to be a fairly low-sugar fruit. I'm doing this to create a new normal for myself, so in a few months from now I might be less likely to binge eat high-sugar fruits. So, why am I sharing all of this with you? Because this vegetable dip has really helped me from snacking too much. The combination of carrots and this dip is sweet, satiating, and super filling. So when I'm feelin' snacky, I just eat some of this and it really puts my cravings in check. It's incredibly fast and easy to make! It's Autoimmune Paleo, SCD, and GAPS friendly. Makes about 10 servings.


     Ingredients

1. Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender (I use the Nutribullet), and blend until pureed into a smooth and creamy consistency. 

You can use this a salad dressing or vegetable dip! My favorite way to eat it is with carrots. Store in the refrigerator and eat with 1 week. 

Enjoy!

  1. Tyler, Found your recipe on AIP Recipe Roundtable. Sounds tasty but I'm wondering about the amount of coconut milk used. Thanks, Nancy

    2. The avocados at our local health food store are about $1.60 right now, and are kind of strange tasting. So I've been following the "dirty dozen/clean fifteen" rule and buying mine conventional at Walmart. They're only $0.49 at Aldis, so I comp. the ones at Walmart for that much!

    3. We don't have Aldis in Florida but I can check Walmart, I prefer to buy organic but the "dirty dozen/clean fifteen" rule sometimes is the only way to buy certain items. Thanks for the feedback.

  4. I just made this and I'm not sure where it's been all my life! The only thing I did differently was tops in a little fresh cilantro, just because I had some. I like this better than dips I ate before AIP, and that's saying something. Thanks!!!!
