A Healthier summer dip
Avocado Cilantro Dip
As I have been missing the warmer months, I reflected on the recipes I would prepare for my beach trips in the summer. I remembered craving a dip with a summery twist before leaving for my friend Allison's beach house. The dip I had decided to make was modified from Rachael Ray’s Creamy Avocado-Cilantro dip. The ingredients were simple. It had avocados, sour cream, cilantro and lime juice. Modifications I made were replacing the sour cream with plan Greek yogurt, while adding a higher exchange of yogurt in place of sour cream. My reasoning behind this change was that it would add more protein while decreasing the calories in the dip.
Below are the ingredients I made the dip with:
Yield: 1 ½ cups
2 large avocados
6 oz nonfat plain Greek yogurt (I used one single serve container of Chobani’s brand)
1 tbsp lime juice
½ cup fresh cilantro
After combining these ingredients in a blender, you can mix all of them together. I personally like to use my NutriBullet, because it is easy to transport.
Disney World is one of my favorite places. I fondly look back on my childhood in Disney, because it was my family's most popular vacation location. As if I didn't get to enjoy Disney enough, my older sister had a marketing internship there this past year. As a result... you could say... I visited Disney three times in one year! During this time, I tried many entrees. Below is a description of my favorite entree eaten at both a restaurant with a reservation and one that took "walk-ins".
