I adore guacamole so I've tried it with mangoes in the past. But I never thought of adding peaches, plums, or pomegranate. This is one of my new favorites!-29 Nov 2008

This vegan, alkaline, gluten-free and garlic-rich avocado dip is a very versatile and a multitasking fellow.

It’s a true Beauty Bite and whether you eat it or put it on your skin or hair – it can do miracles.

The ingredients complement each other in a very gentle and beautiful way and if you let the avocado dill dip do what it does best – perform in a Wrap – you will be amazed.

It gives a nice fresh and flavorful contrast to a cooked meal (lentils, potatoes, chickpeas, beans), which makes it complete.

I normally use this avocado dill dip in the traditional way – as food. And today I had it as well. It’s perfect for wraps, burritos, tortillas, tacos, carambaaa…

HEALTH AND BEAUTY BENEFITS

I use this dip or sauce or whatever you’d like to call it in a number of meals. It has a very fresh, yet fragrant flavor thanks to our buddy Garlic.

  • Avocado is great for your skin, your hair and your health. It prevents cancer, inflammation and is bursting with antioxidants. The green fat fruit with a huge seed inside, as my mother likes to call avocado, contains Biotin, which is an important vitamin for hair and nail strength.
  • Dill has antioxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer properties. It contains a lot of Iron and Calcium – both important for skin health maintenance.
  • Lemon is highly alkalizing and full of vitamin C, which is important for the synthesis of collagen – the protein, that holds the skin together and makes it nice and firm. So to summarize it: more lemonizing, less wrinkling.
  • Garlic is not the one you want to mess around with – Garlic fights cancer, viruses, fungi, bacteria, psoriasis, acne, even vampires and lowers blood pressure. It can also make your hair grow and before you know it you’ll look like cousin Itt from the Addams Family (not to be confused with Stephen King’s It – nobody should ever look like that). Can you do any of that?

And there’s more!

As you see, the ingredients of this dip are pretty great on their own. But bring them 2gether and they’re even more beneficial for your skin and health.

For example, vitamin C from the lemon increases the absorption of Selenium from the garlic. Selenium is an antioxidant mineral, shown to also prevent cancer.

Further the combination of vitamin C from lemon with vitamin E from avocado increases the antioxidant properties of both vitamins. This way evil free radicals have no chance at damaging your skin.

And now you know why I use this dip in almost every recipe. (and have even put it on my face – it’s that great)


Sweet Potato French Fries with Avocado Dipping Sauce

Pair these perfect air fried sweet potato fries with a creamy avocado dipping sauce.

Ingredients

For the Sweet Potato Fries:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste

For the Avocado Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • lime juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch slices.

Toss slices with olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

Place half of the sliced potatoes in air fryer basket. Set to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 14 minutes. Halfway through cook time, shake up the basket.

While cooking the second batch, place all avocado dipping sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Serve dip with sweet potatoes.

Additional Notes

Making sweet potatoes fries is super simple because you just drizzle olive oil and season as desired &ndash no measuring if you don&rsquot want to!

Paprika is key here since it balances the sweetness! SO YUM! Making these fries in the air fryer is so convenient (but you can definitely bake them in the oven instead).

Note: I split up these fries into two batches to avoid overcrowding in my air fryer.

Creamy Avocado Dip

This ultra-creamy dip is packed with protein and healthy fats.

Is avocado dip healthy?

Yes! Avocados are packed with tons of good-for-you stuff: monounsaturated fatty acis (yes, the good kinda fat), more potassium than a banana, and fiber. (Which also makes guacamole a super healthy game day appetizer.) To make this dip creamy, we simply stirred in half a cup of plain Greek yogurt, which also has nutritional clout thanks to protein and probiotics.

How can I make this dip spicy?

This dip is basically a blank canvas&mdashand like guacamole, can go in SO many different directions depending on what flavors you like. If you want it spicy, you can stir in crushed red pepper flakes, a minced jalapeño, or a pinch of cayenne. If you want it smoky, stir in some chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, paprika, or chipotle powder.

How can I make this vegan?

You can sub in vegan yogurt, like soy or coconut! Try to pick one that doesn't have too strong or sweet a flavor. Avocados alone won't be able to mask the sweetness.

What if my avocados aren't ripe?

Ugh, is there anything worse?! If your friends are heading over and you don't have a ripe avocado, you're kinda out of luck. But, if you realize you need to speed up the ripening a couple days in advance, here's what you do: Place the unripe avocado in a brown paper bag with an apple or a banana. Both of these fruits contain the plant hormone ethylene, which speeds up the ripening process.


Creamy Avocado Dip (Vegan, Dairy Free).

Our family loves Mexican food. It is a comfort food, at least for me! Warm, spicy, melty, creamy, crispy, I’d say that falls into the comfort food category.

Tacos, quesadillas, nachos…you name it. When I couldn’t have corn, because of my son’s corn intolerance, I really missed my chips and salsa. I’d still eat guacamole, on pretty much anything, but I did miss crunchy tortilla chips.

Once he could tolerate corn, I was happy to eat tortilla chips again, and especially happy to make this easy avocado dip.

As I said, I love guacamole, and since I knew we were making bean and vegan cheese quesadillas, I thought this recipe for avocado dip would be perfect! I did make some changes to the original recipe so that it would be dairy free.

    • • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • • ¾ teaspoon onion powder

    • • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
    • • Milk of choice*
    • • Optional chopped scallion
    • • Optional minced parsley

    * If you prefer a thinner consistency, add 1 tablespoon milk at a time until you reach desired texture. Opt for almond or oat milk if dairy-free.

    Pro Tips and Tricks

    • Use mangoes that are not too ripe. If the mangoes are overly ripe they will not keep their shape as well.
    • Look for slightly firm avocados. Same as the mango, if the avocado is too ripe it will be mushy.
    • Double-check the heat level of the peppers. Before mixing in, test the peppers to see how spicy they are. Use more or less accordingly.
    • Cut the fruit and veggies in a small dice. By finely cutting the ingredients you&rsquoll ensure you get a little of each in every bite.

    42 Out of This World Paleo Dips

    I’ve recently become aware of how much I love dips. They can make the most boring or otherwise unappealing foods (let’s be honest—carrot sticks, I’m looking at you) easily snackable. So check these out!


    Baba ganoush is a traditional Middle Eastern dip made from roasted eggplant, olive oil, and seasonings. This Paleo version includes garlic, tahini, lemon juice, optional cayenne pepper, sea salt, and chopped fresh basil for amazingly fresh and delicious flavors with simple ingredients.

    It’s hard to believe a dip this good can be good for you. But when you take out all of the unhealthy ingredients and infuse Buffalo chicken dip with healthier alternatives the end result is a dip that you’ll keep dipping into.

    Ever heard of Speculoos butter? It’s made from a ginger shortbread cookie from the Netherlands mixed with sugar and oils. Not healthy at all, but definitely tasty. This vegan and Paleo version is made with tigernut flour and oil, vanilla, seasonings, maple syrup, and milk of choice.

    Zucchini? In salsa? You bet! This salsa is made with ripe peaches, tomatoes, zucchini, scallions, garlic, and seasonings. The basil and mint give it a lovely herbal and fresh flavor that complements the sweet and juicy taste of the juice. Enjoy it over fish or other meats.

    This is my favorite green salsa recipe, and I topped my enchiladas with it at dinner last night! You’ll need tomatillos, jalapenos, fresh garlic, cumin, salt, red onion, and fresh cilantro (if, like me, you aren’t a cilantro fan, you can use parsley or other herbs for a different flavor).

    This smooth and creamy dip is made with avocado oil mayo and has a natural spicy kick to it. It’s dairy-free and seasoned with garlic, capers, green onions, fresh parsley, hot sauce, chili powder, and sea salt. This would go well with either chips or raw veggies.

    This recipe is a twist on the traditional baba ganoush, and uses fennel instead of eggplant for a unique and interesting flavor with almonds, garlic, lemon, anchovies, and olive oil. Sprinkle the top with coarse sea salt flakes and black pepper, and dig in!

    This tasty pesto can be used as a dip or a spread as well as a traditional pesto sauce. Instead of basil, it’s made from garlic scapes, kale, and pistachios to replace the usual pine nuts. It’s totally dairy-free, and you won’t even miss the Parmesan because the flavors are so intense.

    You can’t talk about dips without talking about good old guacamole, right? Of course not! This one is easy and comes together with just avocados, garlic, lime juice, and salt. You can, of course, add more, but this basic guacamole is wonderful and creamy just as it is.

    This sweet and spiced dip goes well with any fruit—not just apples! The creaminess of the cashews and pecans combined with coconut cream, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, and cocoa powder? Yum! Make this tonight and I’ll come help you eat it.

    This mayo is amazing. It’s perfectly Paleo with just eggs, olive oil, chipotle peppers, coconut vinegar, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. It has a kick of spice because of the chipotle, so add it slowly if you’re sensitive! I’d love this with baked sweet potato fries.

    This dip has a flavor that reminds me of baba ganoush with eggplant, olive oil, tahini, lemon, and garlic. But it has a heartier texture, as it isn’t pureed and also has grilled zucchini, cumin, and fresh chopped parsley. This is a flexible recipe, so feel free to use other vegetables.

    I love romesco sauce, and this recipe is amazing with soaked almonds, roasted red bell peppers, garlic, red wine vinegar, paprika, and other seasonings. Use it heated as a sauce, or as a hot or chilled dip for vegetables or Paleo chips, like sweet potato chips.

    This succulent salsa is full of both sweet and savory flavors with mango, avocado, sweet Maui onion, cherry tomatoes, red wine vinegar, olive oil, sea salt, and, if you can handle the heat, a diced jalapeno pepper. I’d love a bowl of this with some sweet potato chips!

    Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits for savory dishes like this amazing salsa. It comes in rainbow colors with bright and tangy pineapple, diced tomatoes, spicy red onions, and other flavors. This would be perfect on sweet potato chips or over chicken or fish.

    If you can get a hold of some green almonds, make this tapenade. It’s savory and a bit sweet from the fresh orange juice, with garlic cloves, capers, mild peppadews, lemon juice, and extra virgin olive oil with a touch of salt. Use it as a spread or dip for fresh vegetables or Paleo bread/crackers.

    You can make this super-green dip to accompany your vegetables, chips, and Paleo crackers with just avocados, lime juice. chopped fresh herbs, and coconut yogurt (to replace the sour cream). You can really change the flavor of this dip by the herbs you choose.

    Cauliflower is a highly versatile vegetable, for sure. You know you can roast it, steam it, and use it as rice or “steaks.” But have you ever thought about turning it into a dip? This dip is made from roasted cauliflower, garlic, olive oil, and pepper. Leave out the cheese if you wish—it’s not necessary for the amazing flavor.

    Two for one?! That’s right. On this page you get two different dipping sauces, and both are Paleo and made with real, whole ingredients like tomato paste, fresh orange juice, smoked paprika, mustard powder, lemon juice, olive oil, and crushed garlic cloves.

    This dip has a secret. It features the usual avocado, salt, cilantro, red onion, and lime juice, but also an additional special ingredient: orange juice! The orange juice adds a lovely, bright sweetness to this dip that will leave guests trying to put their finger on (or in!) what’s different.

    This dip is perfect with the roasted carrots suggested on the recipe page, but you can also enjoy it with other vegetables or sweet potato/vegetable chips. It’s made with avocados, fresh dill, fresh parsley, basil, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and garlic powder.

    Whether you like original guacamole, spicy, or sweet, we’ve got you covered. Here’s three ways to prepare some kick-butt guac for your next get together, or just for yourself. Try all three and see which one you like best!

    Missing hummus? Miss it no more! This recipe is for a bean-free hummus made with tahini, sundried tomatoes, garlic cloves, zucchini, lemon juice, coconut flour (this gives it a thickness and a hummus-like texture), and olive oil with seasonings.

    What a perfect idea! This recipe uses chia seeds to make a heartier guacamole with roasted garlic (adding the whole bulb makes the flavor super wonderful), avocado, diced onion, lime juice and zest, and a teaspoon or so of chia seeds for nutrition and texture.

    This sauce makes an amazing dip, but I wouldn’t hesitate to use it as a sauce on chicken either! It’s both savory and sweet with orange and optional maple syrup, red chili flakes, tahini, and garlic powder. You’ll want to replace the tamari with coconut aminos.

    Looking for a cheesy dip you can use for raw vegetables or chips? Look no further. This cashew-based dip uses nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor without even a hint of dairy. Chives, black pepper, and Himalayan pink salt add the finishing touches to the flavors.

    This dipping sauce is so easy to make with just a few ingredients. The best part? It’s egg-free! There’s nothing wrong with eggs, of course, but you can feel good knowing that this recipe is healthy for you while also being friendly to your friends on vegan, AIP, or otherwise egg-free diets.

    I love the subtle and lovely flavor of pine nuts, and I love cheese! But cheese isn’t technically Paleo. So we have to find other ways to get that cheesy flavor—like with nutritional yeast! This dip uses nutritional yeast, garlic, and lemon juice to create an amazing flavor.

    Love ranch dressing? It’s especially popular with kids, and if it helps them eat their veggies, why not? Oh right…those nasty ingredients. Well, now you can make your own ranch dressing with homemade mayonnaise, parsley, dill, garlic, lemon juice, and almond milk.

    Looking for a cheesy dip you can use for raw vegetables or chips? Look no further. This cashew-based dip uses nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor without even a hint of dairy. Chives, black pepper, and Himalayan pink salt add the finishing touches to the flavors.

    Even if you’re not a huge fan of the earthy flavor of beets, you should give this beet dip/spread a try. With apples and macadamia nuts, the flavor becomes milder and a bit more complex (not to mention the dip gets a protein boost from nuts!). You can’t go wrong with all those nutrients.

    What do vegans and Paleo eaters have in common? Not a lot. But they do both avoid dairy, which makes this “sour cream” recipe perfect. It’s made with creamed cashews, lime juice or lemon juice (to mimic the tartness of cultured dairy), and a hint of salt.

    This dip is amazing. It goes with anything! You can use either pumpkin or butternut squash (technically what’s called for is the squash), and enjoy it either hot or cold with vegetables, Paleo crackers, vegetable chips, or anything your heart desires.

    Roasted red pepper is one of my favorite flavors for dips and sauces, so I’m pretty excited about this recipe. With eggplant, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and fresh chopped basil, you know it’s going to be super savory and super good. It’s super good for your body, too!

    This dip is especially good with the Hawaiian pizza shrimp on the recipe page, but you can enjoy it any way you want. Sweet potato fries? Sure! Roast veggies? Sure! You’ll need tomatoes in puree, sweet onion, garlic, and lots of fresh chopped herbs.

    This beautiful tahini dip is made with beet puree added to it, which creates a lovely color and a super-nutritional dip or spread for vegetables or Paleo breads. Seasoned just with sea salt, black pepper, paprika, and lemon, it allows the beet and tahini flavors to shine.

    Do your kids love ketchup? Want them to have a healthier version without corn syrup and preservatives? This ketchup is good enough for everyone to love, and it’s made with whole ingredients, too. The secret is the balsamic vinegar, which adds an awesome savory flavor.


    Photo: The Toasted Pine Nut

    This yummy dip is perfect for summer vegetables either grilled or raw (or any way!). It’s made from avocados blended with lime juice, sea salt, and pine nuts. The pine nuts add a really unique flavor to this dip, and I love that it has only four ingredients.

    Use Paleo mayonnaise for this (homemade is best) and you’ll be on your way to an amazing homemade curry dip with a cashew base. Cayenne pepper adds a bit of heat, so you can adjust it to your flavor preferences. The coconut milk in this is the perfect complement to the curry flavors.

    Here’s another sweet dip or sauce you can use with fruits. This caramel sauce is made with coconut milk, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, and a bit of coconut oil or butter (I’d make it with butter, but that’s because I’m addicted to butter).

    Cherries are one of my favorite fruits, and this salsa recipe takes advantage of their juicy sweetness and distinct flavors as a balance to hot and spicy jalapenos, red onions, and cilantro. Add oranges, green bell peppers, and lime juice, and you have a rainbow salsa everyone will love.

    I highly recommend enjoying this mayo with the Paleo avocado fries in the recipe! You’ll want to replace the Greek yogurt with coconut yogurt if you don’t eat dairy (use the thickest yogurt possible). There’s a bonus link to a recipe for homemade sriracha!
