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 a lot of 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! Enjoy!

This delicious low-carb avocado sauce can be served on top of chili, as a dip for vegetables, or over grilled meat or veggies, and people who aren’t dieting will definitely be dipping their chips into it! 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 dip is a great choice for low-carb or low-glycemic diets. 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. If you’re doing the Keto diet you may want to use more avocado and less buttermilk.

  1. Marianne, without trying it I really have no idea which would work best, but I'm guessing goat kefir is the closest to butter milk.

  2. What could i substitute for the buttermilk? I have a cow dairy allergy. I have goat kefir, goat yogurt, almond milk, coconut milk.

  3. The first time I had this dip was in college and I have loved in ever since. I have to have it when we make anything Mexican. Mine doesn't look nearly as pretty though…

  4. My neighbor and I make this and LOVE it! I would eat it by the bowl if not for all of the calories!

  5. I haven't frozen it, but I'm skeptical because of the buttermilk. Sorry.

  6. This is delicious! I may not be able to use all of it in the next few days, however, so have you ever tried freezing some of it?

  7. Holy guacamole I can't wait to try this! It's hard for me to imagine making an avocado taste any better but I'm thinking that this recipe is worth a try!:)) Thank you!

  8. Perfect for when you buy a whole bag of avocados and then a days later realize that they're all ripe and you haven't used any! 😉

  9. Shawn, you have my permission!

  10. Love this and I'm sure I'd eat it on everything!!

  11. Can I eat it by the spoonful? Yum!

  12. Kelley, I think this would taste fantastic on veggies, especially carrots, pepper strips, and cauliflower.

  13. Our entire family loves avocado, it's one of the few vegetables I can get my kids to eat with no whining! This would be great to serve them as a dip to the other vegetables that they don't like to eat but now maybe would! 🙂

  14. MsBlueKatt, thank you!! I hate it when I make mistakes like that, let alone copy it and make the mistake twice.

    Joanne, Jake and I could have eaten this by the spoonful!

  15. I ADORE avocados and aim to incorporate them in my life in as many ways as possible. Love this dip idea! It's a nice alternative to guac!

  16. This dip looks divine!! FYI: tabasco is not spelled correctly – should be spelled with an "a" not an "o" at the beginning.

    You can edit my post if you want!

  17. Thanks Eileen; glad you like it!

  18. Hey, that avocado dip would certainly have a good chance of winning any beauty contests I were judging! So green and smooth and creamy… 🙂
