I’m on cashew cream kick at the moment. It’s the perfect base for this avocado dip, because it adds a creamy texture without overpowering the flavor.

These two avocado dips are cashew-based and have only 6 simple ingredients. The avocado lime dip is a cool, creamy dip that is a little bit sweet. The avocado buffalo dip is a healthier version of my Classic Buffalo Dip–swap out the cream cheese for avocado!

These two are very different but both pair well with fries, tofu nuggets, vegetable, tortilla chips, salads, sandwiches, you name it. I love this dip because it is so easy to make a big batch and then use it throughout the week to make my regular meals more exciting. I’ll definitely be bringing both of these to my game day party too!

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup cashews, soaked for one hour

1.5 cups water

2 avocados, halved and pitted

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 clove garlic

For lime dip, use juice from one lime (2 tbsp lime juice). For buffalo dip, do not use lime juice, instead use 2 tbsp Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Sauce

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Blend the cashews with 1/2 cup water until smooth.
  2. Scoop out the insides of the avocados and add to the blender. Add the rest of the water, the lime juice (or buffalo sauce), sea salt, and garlic. Blend again until everything is combined and the dip is creamy.
NOTES
  1. Yields about 2.5 cups of dip.
