Tips and Tricks for Making Avocado Cream Sauce

Fresh Is Best

When adding garlic to your sauce, it’s definitely best to use fresh minced garlic because it provides a better taste. While you can use jarred garlic as a last resort, try to grab fresh garlic cloves to use for this cream sauce.

Lemon Is Okay to Use

If you don’t have any lime at home but you happen to have some lemons, you can use it as an alternative. While not the exact same as a lime, it will still add that slight citrus-like zest to the cream, so you can make it work.

Add Spice for a Kick

When you’re a fan of spicy sauces, you can add diced jalapenos to this sauce mixture or even sprinkle some red pepper chili flakes into the mix with the cilantro, avocado, lime juice, and other ingredients.

Avocado Creme FAQs

Can I use avocado cream sauce as a salad dressing?

Yes! While it’s great to put on your favorite burritos, it’s also wonderful to use as a salad dressing. You can pour it over a bed of lettuce with tofu, veggies, and more.

What should I do if the sauce is too thick?

If your sauce is too thick, add a bit more lime juice to help thin it out, and keep processing it in your food processor until you reach your desired consistency.

Can I leave the garlic out of this recipe?

If you’re not a big fan of garlic, you can omit it from this recipe, but it will alter the taste of your cream. You can always use regular salt and pepper as a replacement for the garlic to keep this cream flavorful.
