How to make Avocado Cream

You only need a few fresh, healthy ingredients and a food processor or blender jar (note: a food processor will produce a thicker mixture) to process a smooth, creamy blend with a sour cream consistency. And because it makes a small batch at a time, it’s perfect to accompany every-day dinners.

To whip up a batch, gather the ingredients, blend them up, and that’s about it! It’s really that simple!

Step by step here is everything you’ll need, and how to make it:


To get a super creamy Avocado Cream, start with perfectly ripe avocados. You’ll need two ripe Avocados (about 6 ounces) with the skins and pits removed. Once that’s done, dice the avocado and add it into the food processor.

How To Select Ripe Avocados...

When selecting ripe avocados, the first thing to look for is the color. The darker the color (ones almost black) are ones you will need to use immediately. If you’re not going to use them right away, look for bright or lighter green avocados that can be stored for a few days before they ripen.

After choosing the color based on how soon you’ll be using the avocado, you’ll need to gently squeeze it to feel and check that it is firm but not too hard. You also don’t want it to be too soft. It should have a slight tenderness feel to it.

Next, check the skin and the stem. The skin on perfectly ripe avocados should have some texture, but there should be no bruising. Additionally, make sure that the butt of the stem is still attached.

Coconut Milk

Next, you will need two tablespoons of full-fat coconut milk. Go ahead and add it into the food processor now.


Now, add the juice from one lime into the food processor with the avocado and the coconut milk. Blend on high power to puree the ingredients until they are smooth.

Avocado Oil

With the blender still running, drizzle in two tablespoons of avocado oil through the small opening at the top of the food processor and into the avocado puree. Continue to blend for about 30-40 seconds for the mixture to become super creamy as the oil incorporates into the puree.
Now you’re ready to scrape the avocado cream out of the blender or food processor and into a bowl.


To finish it off, stir in about ¼ teaspoon kosher salt to taste. You can serve the avocado cream immediately in the bowl for spooning or transfer it to a pourable type jar or squeezable container for topping your favorite foods.

A sure-fire crowd-pleaser too!

Wow, your family, friends, and dining guests by adding Dairy-free Avocado Cream to your next taco bar. Set out a dish alongside tortillas, taco meat, and toppings to transform a run of the mill taco bar and everyone’s food into a tasty, trendy dining experience. Just don’t act too surprised when everyone starts asking you for the recipe!

  • To prepare the avocado, you’ll need a cook's knife and a cutting board. First, cut the avocado lengthwise around the pit, then gently twist the avocado halves to separate. Next, cut each half in half again into four quarters; at this point, you can safely remove the pit from the flesh before gently peeling off the skin. With the skin and pit removed, the avocado flesh can be cut into thin slices or diced into cubes.
  • Add the avocado, coconut milk, lime juice into a food processor or high-powered blender. Blend on high power to puree until the mixture is smooth. With the blender still running, drizzle in the avocado oil -when blended, remove and season with kosher salt to taste, serve immediately in a bowl for spooning, a pourable type jar or a squeezable container for topping your favorite foods.

I'm so happy you're here,

I’ve always loved food. I’ve loved to think about it, write about it, and talk about it. Then suddenly, one day, everything I thought I knew about nourishing my body changed when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE now my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
