Avocado Ranch Dip

Another wonderful dip recipe coming at ya... it's healthy, cool and perfect for summer. Anything involving avocados and I'm game!

Avocado Ranch Dip
adapted from Lavender&Lilies, serves 6 but easily changeable

Ingredients:
3 avocados
Greek yogurt - I use Fage fat free found at walmart and grocery stores
Hidden Valley Ranch dip packet (powder packet)

Take the flesh out of the avocados into a bowl. Add a dollop of greek yogurt per avocado. Add the ranch like you are generously seasoning something. The original calls for the whole packet but as I tasted while mixing it did not need the whole packet. (To give you a better idea I have about used a whole packet now after going through 5 avocados). Taste it to see if it needs more as you are seasoning. Mash avocado mixture with fork and stir until creamy. This is best cold so chill until cold or speed it up by putting in the freezer for a bit.

Serve with chips or on tacos, etc. This is easily adapted for however many avocados you want to use. The best estimate I have found for using as an appetizer is 1/2 avocado per person.


Make sure to get some before it is all gone! This dip was gone in 15 minutes tops. Our friends could hardly wait until I was able to take pictures of it. It's that delicious.

I'm making this again tonight!Enjoy!
