Avocado Yogurt Sauce

Plain, low-fat yogurt creates this creamy avocado dip, a delicious alternative to standard salsa.


  • 1 1/2 cups (360 g) plain low fat yogurt
  • 2 avocados, pitted, peeled
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 lime, peeled, halved
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, halved, seeds and membranes removed
  • 1/4 cup (5 g) fresh cilantro leaves


  1. Place yogurt, avocados, garlic, lime, salt, and jalapeño pepper into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Blend for 30 seconds, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades. Reduce speed to Variable 7. Remove lid plug and add cilantro through the lid plug opening.
  5. Blend for 15 seconds.

Leave seeds and membrane in jalapeno for a spicier sauce. Serve with tacos, fajitas, seafood, poultry or as a salsa alternative with chips.
