Ingredients

  • Flesh from 2 ripe avocados
  • 3/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  • Juice from 1 lime or more to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt (adjust to taste)

Instructions

  • Place the avocado, coconut milk, lime juice, cilantro, garlic and salt in a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste, and adjust seasoning as desired.
  • Use as a topping on tacos, stuffed sweet potatoes, on chicken, burgers or in these black bean meal prep bowls.

Notes

  • Use ripe avocados for this recipe as they will break down in the blender more easily for the ultimate smooth and creamy sauce. Just be sure to use avocados that are still green, and not overripe and brown since the crema won't maintain its vibrant green colour for very long if made with brownish avocados. 
  • I recommend using a high power blender such as the Ninja blender since it will be able to power through the ingredients and create a nice creamy texture with no lumps present.
  • Depending on the type of blender you use, you may wish to stir the ingredients half way through the blending process to ensure that all of the ingredients are evenly distributed and nothing gets left on the bottom of the blender.
  • Adjust the garlic to taste. Start with one clove, and then taste. If you prefer a stronger garlic flavour, add another one and blend until smooth. You may also wish to roast the garlic first to add a delicious roasted garlic flavour.
  • Store this crema in the fridge sealed in an air-tight container for up to two to three days. It's ready to use right out of the fridge.
