This is a nutrient-dense dip filled with the many benefits of spinach and the heart healthy fats of avocado. If you are an avocado fan, this is a must to make. It's almost like a guacamole but the spinach adds a bit of a different element and not to mention so many more nutrients. I made this with some mexican spices, but feel free to add whatever sounds good to you!!
This dip can be enjoyed with fresh vegetables, spread on Grain Free "Wheat" Crackers, used in place of mayo in an egg or chicken salad or spread on salmon sashimi! I can easily just eat this straight out of the bowl with a spoon! If you are trying to get more greens into yours or your families bodies, this is an easy way to sneak spinach in!
Recipe: Spinach and Avocado Dip
- 1 ripe avocado
- 4 large handfuls of spinach
- 1 tsp lemon or lime juice
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- dash of cayenne pepper
- Add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth
Kale is another powerhouse green that you could use in place of or in addition to the spinach. I have not tried this so I am not sure if kale is more obvious in taste.
