Want a recipe that will perk you right up? This yogurt bowl is sweet but also really bright- perfectly perky in the morning or as a snack. I personally love the combination of lemon & blueberry. Normally you see it in cheesecakes or bars but here is a fresher take. Plus it is super easy! Keep reading to put together the pieces!…
In case you’ve been living under a rock (or don’t follow me on Instagram…), we’ve been moving all the way from Nebraska back to Vegas! The trip has been oh so very long but as I’m typing this up tonight we’re officially in our last hotel- tomorrow we move into our new place! Moving is part of the military life but keeping good snacks on the road is tough. Ryan picked up a selection of the Plenti Yogurt from Yoplait & they were definitely a hit!…
If you take a peek in a my fridge you’ll almost always find Greek yogurt. Yogurt makes it way into a ton of my recipes because it has a nice, long refrigerator life, it is good for our dogs, & it can be used in both savory & sweet recipes. Usually I buy both a large container & single serving cups (my favorites are from Chobani!) for variety. When I use my single cups I often just make dips inside the container- perfect for less dishes & less hassle! Keep reading to see my recipe for this dill & lemon Greek-influenced dip that is a favorite!…

But anyway…onto the food!If you caught my Cilantro Lime Ranch Dressing recipe awhile back then you know how much I love my little dressing mixing gadget (check out the Vibe Salad Dressing Mixer on Amazon here!) & it makes me create more recipes out of pure inspiration. Today I’m sharing my easy mix that I use on tacos, with veggies, & even thinned out as a dressing. I call it the Creamy Healthy Avocado Sauce! Keep reading to check out this simple wonder!
So this recipe was born months ago when I had half an avocado that I needed to use up. My husband doesn’t eat them & although I can sit down to a whole one I wanted to make it last. I always have these ingredients on hand with the exception of the avocado so it practically makes itself.
- ½ a ripe avocado
- ¼ to ½ cup Greek yogurt
- 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- ½ a fresh or roasted jalapeno, chopped & seeded OR jalapeno sauce
- 3 pinches fresh cilantro, chopped fine
- Combine all ingredients in food processor or whisk together until creamy. Add more or less milk depending on how thin you'd like it.
- Serve chilled.
This day I was really feeling tacos & this sauce was absolutely a perfect topper! These are roasted chicken tacos on corn tortillas topped with lettuce, Creamy Avocado Sauce, & some beautiful feta cheese. Yum! Also great with chopped veggies (use it in place of ranch!) & just about anything that is good with a chilled topper in my opinion. If you need a dip cut back on the milk & add a touch more greek yogurt. Also great with a tablespoon or two of your favorite salsa.
