Nourish Your Skin: Creamy Avocado Lime Dip

By Sarah Axtell, ND February 11, 2018

This dip is a bright lift to a dark and wintry day. Avocados are a great source of healthy monounsaturated fats as well as vitamin E, one of the most important nutrients for the skin, protecting it from oxidative damage. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, which means it is best absorbed in the presence of fats at a meal. It has been shown to be more effective when combined with vitamin C- lime!

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 2 tbsp chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt and a few dashes of black pepper to taste
  • 2-4 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

Instructions

  1. Cut avocados in half and then scoop out the flesh.
  2. In a food processor mince the garlic. Add avocado meat and lime juice and process. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Mix in the red peppers and hemp hearts for added crunch and protein boost.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Stir in cilantro and enjoy.
