If you are vegan or lactose intolerant, you know butter is not something your body would want you to add to your diet. But, what if we tell you that you’re going to enjoy the goodness of dairy butter by replacing it with avocado butter after reading this piece?
Additionally, in the recipe we’re sharing, the goodness of avocados will be combined with garlic to promote health. With its high antioxidants, garlic regulates cholesterol and blood pressure levels and avocado is known for its rich nutritional value that includes 20+ essential nutrients like vitamin B5, C, K, E, potassium and magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese, vitamin A, B1, B2 and B3 to mention a few.
This healthy, creamy recipe was developed by Fooddeco and clearly, it’s a health condiment you didn’t even know you needed. To get the perfect smooth and spreadable texture, you’d need perfectly ripe avocados.
How to make avocado garlic butter?
- 2 ripe avocados, pit & skin removed
- 2 garlic cloves, grated
- 3 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- Small bunch of cilantro, chopped
- Sea salt, to taste
Cut the avocado in half, peel the skin and remove the pit. After that, combine all the above-mentioned ingredients in a food processor and mix until you get a smooth mixture. Season it with sea salt as per your taste.
Then, cover the counter with aluminum foil and add a piece of plastic wrap on top of it. Scoop the mixture onto the plastic wrap and fold the plastic wrap lengthwise, rolling it up a little.
Finally, roll the aluminum foil to get a small log of butter, and place it in the refrigerator for at least 3 to 4 hours to firm.
