I'm not sure what to call this one. Is it a cream? A sauce? A dip? A spread? It can be used as all of the above for several different recipes. I'll leave it as a "cream" because of its texture and mouthfeel, though as an FYI, it can be used for EVERYTHING.
It's creamy and satisfying. Avocados are becoming more and more popular because of its nutritional profile. It's a great way to consume healthy fats from a whole food. While some plant-based oils also contain healthy fats, avocados provide fibre and some protein - something a spoonful of olive oil cannot provide.
This recipe is most delicious when fresh, so aim to make it the day you plan on consuming it for the best flavour.
