Avocado and Yogurt Dip



This has become my new favorite snack, and is a great dip for carrots, celery and cucumbers.  It is very easy to make and would be a healthy appetizer to bring to a Super Bowl party.  I got the recipe from Eating Well magazine.  Here's the recipe:


Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  • Directions

    Place avocado, yogurt, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper in a food processor. Process until smooth. Season with hot sauce, if desired.  It will last two days in the refrigerator if covered.

    Makes 8 servings.  Serving size = 2 tablespoons
