Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 avocado medium to large in size
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped cilantro (or 1 tsp. dried)
  • 1/2 tsp. maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes (more for extra spice!)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. water


  1. Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender, and mix until smooth. 

  2. Add water 1 tbsp. at a time to thin to desired consistency ( I like mine more creamy!) 

  3. Because of the fresh avocado, this dressing is best used within one or two days.
