Equipment

  • Blender or Food Processor

  • 2 large avocados

  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 2 small cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  • Prep all of the ingredients and add them to a high speed blender or food processor. We used our Vitamix, but any blender or food processor works here.

Notes

Storage: place leftovers in a bowl or plastic container then cover it with plastic wrap and push it down so that it's touching the surface of the sauce. This prevents air getting to the avocado and turning it brown. Cover with a lid and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
