I can’t decide which one I love more, basil pesto or avocado. Wait a minute, why decide?! Just mix the two together for a delicious, healthy creamy spread, sauce or dip! I especially love this mixture on a grilled cheese sandwich with fresh basil and tomato.

Easy Basil Pesto Avocado Cream Sauce, Spread or Dip -- Super healthy and so versatile!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 whole ripe avocado
  • 2-3 tbsps basil pesto (I like the Mezzetta brand)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • A squirt or more of fresh lemon juice

INSTRUCTIONS:

Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy. Start off with just 2 tbsps of basil pesto, and then add more if desired. You can also add a little water so that it’s not so thick (depending on what you’re using it for).

HOW TO USE IT:

  1. Spread it on a sandwich (I love it on a grilled cheese!)
  2. Spread it on your morning toast.
  3. Serve it with grilled chicken for added flavor.
  4. Toss it with pasta.
  5. Use it as a dip paired with pita bread, crackers, or veggies.
