Light and Creamy… it’s one way to fight back all that quarantine-candy-eating. 

Hey, pal! How are you? Did you vote?? Who’d you vote for? KIDDING! …unless you wanna share. ;-))
As long as you voted, that’s what matters. Can’t cry if you didn’t vote, m’kay? 

I really hope that you’re in the mood for something fresh and light. Casseroles and Chilis are still brewing, but if we want those skinny jeans to look good in our Summer bods, Avocados and Smoothies are beyond a must. 

My morning routine always involves a healthy sipper, like this Strawberry Smoothie, but my lunch is all about the salad and the Avo…that’s what the cool kidz call it diz dayz.

Anywho. Let’s just not talk about all the chocolate that comes in between those two meals…
Come on, now. We gotta LIVE a little!

Why Avocados are Healthy

…and since “living a little” (longer) means involving healthier options, your new bestie should be this beautiful Avocado fruit. Yes, it’s a fruit…there’s a pit in it which apparently is what makes it a fruit. 🤷‍♀️ 

In fact, this fruit provides many potential health benefits.

Avocados contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals. They also contain more potassium than bananas! They’re loaded with fiber, as well, and loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. Its creamy texture and rich taste is an added bonus!

You can add them to a number of recipes, including salads and salad dressings, or just scoop them out and EAT!

How To Make Creamy Avocado Salad Dressing

And speaking of eating… who wants to replace their bottled Ranch Dressing with my outrageously delicious, creamy, light and good for you Avocado and Lime Salad Dressing!?

And it’s super easy.

  • Just combine plain yogurt, avocado, olive oil, lime juice, and some seasonings in a blender; blend until creamy.
  • Then, serve as a salad dressing or a DIP. 🥑 ❤️

    Question. You say this makes 2-2 1/2 cups but you use 4 cups of yogurt. Is one of those numbers a typo. Should the yogurt amount be 2 c.

  2. Erika

    This sounds great! Do you have a suggestion for a dairy-free replacement for the yogurt? My daughter is lactose intolerant but I know she would love this dressing.

    1. T. Lundeen

      some people who are lactose intolerant can handle yogurt. If she is also casiene intolerant it would not work. I am lactose intol and I can do this dressing. You might try making a cashew “butter” and adding extra lime or a bit of rice vinegar to get the yogurt bite or you can invest $$ in So Delicious yogurt.

  4. shelly peterson

    I learned that avocado’s are a fruit not a vegetable since they have a seed. Also that dairy comes from Dairy Queen, thought that was funny.

    I knew most of the things that were mentioned about avacados, but I did learn that those kids were really cute! And that I can hardly wait to try out that dressing!

  6. Vicki

    I didn’t actually learn anything new from the video, I did however enjoy all the kiddies learning new things, PLUS, I can’t wait to make that dressing!

  7. Paula D.

    I had not heard about how to tell the difference between a fruit and a vegetable. It’s making me rethink quite a few foods. Hmm…this is my “learn something new everyday” for today – thanks!

  8. heather

    I watched the entire video and I learned that vegan’s eat nothing that comes from an animal at all. The two kids are super cute and I just loved their answers I love that they eat vegetables and love avocados.

  9. Gina M

    I learned that they are a fruit and not a veggie due to the pit inside.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I learned that avocados are fruits because they have seeds. I’ve never really thought about it. Also, I like the kid that thinks dairy products come from Dairy Queen!

  11. Pamela Gurganus

    Something I learned from this video is that avocado is a fruit and not a vegetable! My goodness…where have I been and under what rock have I been living? 🙂 Thank goodness for children and the things we can learn from them! Thank you for this awesome giveaway opportunity and best wishes to all those entering! Happy holidays everyone!

    natural good fat your body needs can be added to all meals of day due to light flavor profile

    They are technically a fruit but are not sweet 🙂

  13. Stacey Roberson

    I learned that by eating healthy and showing your kids how to eat healthy, it will help them make better diet choices now and in the future.

  14. Diane P.

    I learned a couple of things from the video: 1) The youngsters of today know so much more than we knew at their age, and 2) The avocado is a fruit,

  15. Sharon

    Those kids were adorable! I learned that in kid-world, avocados go by an alternate name: ottocado. I think I like that one better. 🙂

  16. James Robert

    I learned about PHD’s pretty healthy dudes lol and loved her comment about vegetarian where she thought a vet. Avocados is a fruit
