Creamy Avocado Sauce Recipes

January 21, 2018

Avocado. This fruit has taken the world by storm as being THE health craze. 


Some background information (just for the geeks like me) - First grown in mexico and had been part of their diet and culture for thousands of years before the Spanish actually brought the avocado to Europe including US! Avocados are the most popular foods of this decade with profits in the millions and the demand being at it peak for distribution and growth of the particularly weird and exotic fruit (once described as an alligator pear tree!)- is this weird how I totally understand why it was?🙆

 

So history lesson is over, now for food technology time😛


So just mashing a avocado can be great- but lets get some creative juices flowing with something different. My creamy avocado sauce recipe uses 2 main ingredients and some extras to give it a flair and flavour (wow I feel like Jaime Oliver with all these adjectives!!) 

 

May I add these are perfect for students too👍👍👍

 

The recipe

(for one portion)

-1/2 Avocado 

- 1 tbsp Quark

 

That's it!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?


Quark? Is this the sound of a posh duck! (Yes- the meme is hilarious!) Quark is a healthy version of cream cheese with it being naturally fat free and high in protein (did I mention it's super cheap). Great as a substitute for Philadelphia.

 

How to use it?

 

some of my favourite meals that I use this avocado sauce in
