Avocado Butter

Delicious and such a low cal healthy alternative to butter.

You will need

¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 tsp onion powder
3 tablespoons of avocado oil
150g avocado flesh (1 med-large avo)
2 teaspoons of lime juice

Mix ¼ teaspoon salt, 1/8 tsp onion powder with 3 tablespoons of avocado oil. Add 150g avocado flesh (1 med-large avo) and 2 teaspoons of lime juice. Blend until the oil and avo are well combined. Serve on toast or even as a dip. Keep the avo butter in the fridge for three days. Store with cling wrap touching it so it doesn’t lose its colour.
