Ah, our love of avocados. Well, at least my love of avocados! They’re such an incredible food. And while they are technically a fruit, their nutritional makeup of healthy brain nourishing fats makes avocados an incredible thing to incorporate at meals.
They are also incredibly versatile. I have used avocados in everything from soups (make them creamy without dairy!) to chocolate mousse (what?!) to this glorious recipe for avocado crema. Think of it as a whipped and lighter version of guacamole. Super creamy, fluffy, easy to throw together (really!) and because of all the lemon juice it will stay in your fridge for 4-5 days without turning brown. The creaminess comes simple from the fat in the avocados and with the addition of just 5 other simple ingredients your result is this dreamy, luscious whipped dip that you’re going to want to put on everything!
