Is this Creamy Avocado Cilantro Dressing a healthy choice?
This is definitely a healthier option being made with low-fat Greek yogurt, and avocado. The avocado brings a lot of folates, potassium, and healthy fats while also packing in small amounts of B vitamins and minerals, such as copper, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, and zinc. Greek yogurt provides great nutrients and offers a particularly rich source of protein, vitamin B12, riboflavin, and selenium while being low carb.
Avocados – We used Hass Avocados in this recipe because they’re easy to obtain, and are a little higher in fat giving them a richer and smoother taste overall. Perfect for this dressing!
Greek Yogurt – We used Greek yogurt because it’s a healthier alternative to sour cream but you could use sour cream in this recipe if need be.
What can you use this Creamy Avocado Cilantro Dressing for?
