If you love guacamole but want a creamier mildly spiced version then you'll love this yogurt, avocado and coriander dip. It's deliciously creamy and perfect as dip and also ideal for drizzling on salads as a dressing.
I am alone in my family in that I love avocados! I don't mind! At least I know no one else will eat the last one! The problem is that sometimes I don't eat avocados as often as I'd like.
The great thing about this recipe is that it can be made along with a couple of other dips and everyone will be able to find one they like! That's my plan anyway.
This creamy avocado, yogurt and coriander dip honestly could not be easier to make. I know you can buy creamy avocado dips in the supermarket but it is so much nicer to make your own. The herbs are much more vibrant and it's very quick to make. Just put all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz.
Ingredient notes for this avocado dip
To make this dip you will need:
- Avocado - Try to use a ripe one but without bruises.
- Plain natural yogurt - I use Greek yogurt. You can use a reduced or full fat yogurt depending on your preferences.
- Coriander leaves (cilantro) - You can include the stems as well.
- Cumin - I add just a little ground cumin. If you don't want to you can miss it out.
- Seasoning - I also add a pinch of salt
How do you make this creamy avocado coriander dip?
This dip could not be easier to make. You simply put everything in a food processor and blitz till it's smooth and creamy. Do make sure to taste it and add extra seasoning if necessary before serving.
Is this avocado dip the same as guacamole?
Well, there are loads of ways to make guacamole but the main difference is that guacamole always has citrus juice in it, usually lime. Or sometimes lemon!
This avocado dip is smoother and creamier and has yogurt added to it. It also has a little cumin which adds just a touch of warm spiciness.
What can you serve with this avocado and coriander dip?
This coriander and avocado dip is really versatile. You can serve it with all kinds of bread and vegetable sticks. It's great for putting on the table as a starter with a few other dips as you can prepare it in advance.
It's also great as a dressing. I love to drizzle some onto a taco, a burger or over a salad. If you are looking for a healthier burger sauce then this really is a great option!
Can you make it without a food processor?
If you don't have a food processor you could chop the herbs and mash everything but it would be hard to get it quite so creamy.
Can you adapt this recipe?
Of course you can adapt it. You could make it a slightly chunkier dip and add some diced tomatoes, onions or both. If you're not so keen on spices then omit the cumin.
You could even add a squeeze of lime or lemon!
How long does it stay fresh for?
I like to make anything with avocado in on the day I'm serving it as it can loose it's colour and go a bit brown.
however, if you do have leftovers you can keep it in the fridge for up to 48 hours. Even if it does go a little brown, it is still fine to eat.
