Easy Avocado Sauce
If you love avocados you’ll enjoy this Easy Avocado Sauce on just about everything, and this post has ten ideas for using this delicious low-carb sauce! And this sauce uses buttermilk which adds a nice tang and stretches out the avocados a bit more.
Are you a sauce person? I’m one of those people who wouldn’t mind some kind of dressing or sauce on just about everything I eat, and when I made this Easy Avocado Sauce with my nephew Jake, we couldn’t stop thinking of good ways to eat it. And I promise that if you’re an avocado fan you’ll love this recipe.
The recipe has some healthy buttermilk, which adds tang and makes the avocado go a bit farther. And if you’re following a high-fat low-carb eating plan feel free to use more avocado and less buttermilk!
I first made the sauce with lemon juice, but now I’d use my fresh-frozen lime juice. Take your choice on that, but if you’re an avocado fan you have to try this recipe!

Low Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This amazingly easy avocado sauce is a great choice for low-carb or low-glycemic diets, but if you’re doing the Keto diet you may want to use more avocado and less buttermilk.. Avocados are considered a “good fat” for the original South Beach Diet, but they’re a limited food, with 1/3 of an avocado being equal to 1 tablespoon of fat (and 2 tablespoons of fat allowed per day.) Since this sauce is mixed with buttermilk, you can eat more of it, but I would limit portion size for the South Beach, especially for Phase One.
