Avocado Jalapeno Yogurt Dip

Time to update your same old guacamole recipe by adding creamy protein-packed yogurt to make a healthy new and tasty dip that's perfect for Easter or any of your spring gatherings.

Avocado Jalapeno Yogurt Dip

When I was growing up it wasn't a party unless there was some sort of dip.  I still believe this today and love making fresh homemade ones because the are simple to throw together.  This Avocado Jalapeno Yogurt Dip can be made in 10 minutes!  How's that for quick and easy?

I love a good guacamole, but decided to go for something creamy.  Yogurt is a healthy way to add extra protein, and creaminess to dips.  Plus it's less fattening than sour cream and mayo.  For an extra kick, I've added minced jalapeno along with some fresh dill to brighten the flavor.  Serve this healthy dip with crunchy vegetables, pita chips or pretzels, or use as a sandwich spread.  The taste is amazing!


What Ingredients do I need?

  • avocado - a ripe medium large size
  • Greek yogurt - get non-fat or 2% for a healthier dip
  • cilantro
  • fresh dill
  • pickled jalapenos - or use fresh
  • onion powder
  • limes

Substitutions and Variation

  • Substitute parsley for cilantro or try chives for a more onion flavor
  • Leave out the dill if you don't like it.
  • Use fresh jalapenos or use hot sauce to provide a little heat

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Double the recipe for a crowd.  
  • Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days
  • Use as a sandwich spread
  • Use as a base on toast with chopped tomatoes and red onion and cilantro
  • Great with pita, vegetables, or chips
