Print Recipe


  • food processor or high-speed blender


  • 2 medium avocados
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 cup oat milk see notes
  • 1 handful cilantro


  • Chop the cilantro and set aside. Measure out the other ingredients. Juice the lime if using a real lime. Set all aside.
  • Cut avocados open and scoop out the insides. Place in a food processor or blender.
  • Add in the onion and garlic poweders, salt, lime juice, and plant milk of choice. I prefer using oat milk.
  • Process/blend until smooth.
  • Add in the chopped cilantro. Either stir it in or lightly procress.
  • Immediately put in an airtight container and try to use withing a couple of days.


Use any unflavored and unsweetened plant milk of choice. I like oat milk for its taste and creaminess.
This recipe is written to make a thick sauce to scoop on top. If you would like to drizzle the cream sauce, you will need to thin it will a little more plant milk. Always start with the recipe suggestion of 1/4 cup. Then add in up to another 1/4 in single Tablespoon increments. Remember, you can always add more, but you can't take it away. 
If you want to make this into a salad dressing, add two tablespoons of white vinegar. I like white wine vinegar.
This will not keep well, even in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If you don't anticipate using within a day or so, make a half batch.
The serving size is about 2 Tablespoons.
