The smooth, rich texture of the avocado combined with the tanginess of lime juice and the fresh flavor of cilantro creates a perfect balance of flavors that will elevate any dish. The best part? It’s incredibly easy to make! Simply toss all the ingredients into a blender or food processor, and blend until you achieve your desired consistency.

Not only does this crema taste fantastic with my AIP grain-free taquitos, but it also serves as a versatile dip for your favorite tortilla chips or fresh vegetables. It’s a healthier alternative to traditional sour cream-based dips, thanks to the nutrient-dense avocado and the use of full-fat coconut cream instead of dairy.
