Your New Fave Condiment: Avocado Crema
I put that $!&*@! on everything!
Rich, creamy, and packed with good-for-you, disease-fighting, gut-friendly ingredients. This avocado crema is about to become your new favourite condiment.
Whip up a jar on the weekend and you can use this crema in a thousand different, healthy ways:
- as a dip for your favourite veggies (it's a perfect dip for kiddo lunches)
- as a spread on sandwiches and wraps
- as a spread on seed crackers or rice cakes
- as a garnish for tacos, lettuce wraps, and fajitas
- as a garnish for chili
- as a drizzle for pork, chicken or beef
- as a soup... OK, not really... but it's tempting to sneak a spoonful straight out of the jar
Add some healthy fats -- like the special disease-fighting fats in this avocado crema -- to your snacks and meals, and you'll feel full on fewer calories, and stay full for longer after eating.
