Creamy Avocado Pesto

Got over-ripe avocados in the fridge that need used up? This super quick pesto recipe is just the answer.

All you need is a blender, a few ingredients and hey pesto! (I’m sorry) – you’ve got a deliciously fresh dip.

  • 1 large over-ripe avocado
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Juice from 1/4 lemon
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 40g pine nuts
  • 75g fresh basil or 4 tbs dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to season


Simply chuck all the ingredients into a blender & blitz until smooth & creamy.

It goes great as a sauce for pasta or as a dip for some loaded nachos.
