This Whole30 Creamy Avocado Sauce is very delicious and a great healthy alternative to creamy dairy sauces or even mayo-base dressings. It’s very good on top of salads, roasted veggies, veggie noodles, fishes and chicken too. It’s also paleo, low-carb and gluten-free.
When I was growing up in Brazil I used to eat avocados in smoothies and in deserts because there, it is how we eat them. So, when I moved to Canada I quickly learned that here in North America, avocados are eaten in salads and savory meals. At first I thought it was very weird and for the first 3 years living in Canada I keep eating avocado only in my smoothies. Then, one day after seeing all these amazing avocado recipes online I decided to give it a try and I totally fell in love with avocados in my salads, salsas, and now sauces. I’ve been obsessed and have been making this Creamy Avocado Cauliflower Salad, Super Easy Avocado Cucumber Tuna Salad, and Shrimp Avocado Cucumber Salad. I pretty much put it on everything!

I can’t believe I resisted for so long. Now I’m totally addicted to it so much so that even when I go to Brazil I eat avocados with eggs for breakfast for example and my family just looks at me very weird hahahahha. Culture is definitely something very interesting and funny, don’t you think? My sister said that now Mexican food are getting more popular in Brazil, so people are learning more and more how to eat more avocados in their meals.
Currently I’ve been eating lot avocados, but just to try something different with it I decided to make sauces. Mm… So delicious! I didn’t think it would be so good but it is. Trust me when I say this sauce is AMAZING! It’s a finger licking sauce for sure! And you just need 5-ingredient to make it: avocado, olive oil, garlic, lemon sauce, parsley and salt and pepper (I never count salt and pepper as ingredient).
Which kitchen tool do you need to make this Whole30 Creamy Avocado Sauce?
You will need a food processor to process all the ingredients well. I like my sauce very smooth and that’s why I prefer to use a food processor. But you can also use a mashed potato tool if you have one or a hand blender works well too. My food processor is this one from KitchenAid, which is perfect for me because I live in a small condo so my kitchen is compact. I don’t have lots of space to put away appliances. This one is very small, but does the job very well. And the price is excellent! Great deal for what you will get. You can check it out here.

Where can I use this Whole30 Creamy Avocado Sauce?
This sauce is very versatile. You can use it on top of many different types of salads, especially green salads and chicken salad, roasted veggies, veggie noodles and even fish and chicken recipes. Even if the recipe is creamy, I put a big dollop on top, like in this Creamy Parmesan Chicken Skillet! You can also use it as a dip sauce for baked sweet potato fries and chips.
For how long this Whole30 Creamy Avocado Sauce stays good in the fridge?
I’m not going to lie here. We all know that avocados don’t last long once we cut them. When I make this sauce I use it right away on my salads or roasted veggies and it is about 4 servings (depending on the size of each serving). But I stored it in an airtight container and it lasts well for up 3 days in the fridge.
Hope you enjoy it as much as me and give it a try!
