Here’s what you need to make avocado sauce:

Labeled ingredients for avocado sauce.
  • avocado – make sure it’s ripe
  • sour cream – you can also use Greek yogurt instead but you may need to add a little bit more lime juice to the sauce
  • garlic – I’m using a small amount of fresh garlic and dried
  • fresh cilantro – you can use leaves and stems
  • lime juice – for a tangy and refreshing sauce, lime’s sourness may vary so add it to your taste, you can also use lemon juice here but lime juice is better, please use just freshly squeezed juice!
  • milk – just to thin out the sauce, you can also use water
  • you could also add a deseeded jalapeno to this sauce for some heat

Peel the avocado and remove the pit.

Add all the ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth. You can also use a hand/immersion blender.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy!

You can adjust it to your taste by adding more lime juice or its consistency by adding more milk/water (but if you’re planning to use it for wraps, it can’t be too thin or your wraps will be mushy).

Serving suggestions

Storage

Cover the sauce immediately with plastic foil – it should touch the surface of the sauce to prevent browning. After a day or two, the surface of the sauce will brown a little but the flavor stays the same. Keep it for up to 3 days in the fridge.
