  1. I tried this last summer and I immediately fell in love with it. After the first spoonful I decided I was going to include it in my diet. Avocado is so satisfying and filling. I’ll recommend this recipe forever.

  2. THIS IS AMAZING! I was a little scared to try it but oh my goodness, I definitely recommend it! DELICIOUS!

  3. It’s SO delicious! I was excited to try something different and this was so refreshing. I made it to bring to a bridal shower as a dip to share and even without adding the water the texture was a little thin for sharing as a dip…so I added a can of chickpeas (rinsed!) and it added some great texture to the dip. I even saved some to eat as a bowl of soup for myself :-) I topped it with the cucumber and parsley as shown above and also a few wasabi edamame! Will be making again, and again, and again! THANKS K+K! <3
