Avocado Cream

At first you might be thinking what ever would you use this ‘cream’ for, but once you taste it I know your mind will start counting the ways.

Like used as a dipping sauce for empanadas, tossed with pasta,  added to a cream sauce for a bit more flavor and creaminess, drizzled over a salad or grilled veggies, even as a topping for creamy soups like butternut squash or carrot and ginger soup….or used instead of sour cream to top off our tasty Azteca Soup!


The highest concentration of vitamins in the avocado is in the flesh right next to the skin. So make sure you scoop out every last bit of all that green goodness.AvocadoCream2
