In their pure form, avocados are indeed a culinary specialty. This fruit is an easy and yummy breakfast option when topped on bread with some egg and seasoning.

Another avocado favorite is definitely guacamole-and if you’re really adventurous, you’ve probably tried it in ice cream or brownies.

But, this isn’t everything avocados can offer- you should definitely add this avocado recipe to your collection-it’s a delicious butter made from avocados and garlic.

It’s ideal for you if you often spread butter on toast for breakfast.

The Fooddeco creator Collete Dike claims she came up with the recipe when she was developing recipes for her 5th avocado cookbook.

She likes it more than regular butter-this is because avocado has quite a creamy texture and since she’s lactose intolerant, she decided to make an avocado butter recipe.

You can spread it on warm naan bread, toast or serve it as a healthy dip on a snack platter.

Before making it, it’s important to be ice-cold and set in the fridge; otherwise it will lose its shape and disintegrate!

Avocado & Garlic Butter Recipe

You’ll need:

  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 3 tbsp of melted coconut oil
  • A tbsp of lemon juice
  • A small cilantro bunch, chopped
  • Sea salt


Put the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Season it with salt. Then, put a rectangular piece of aluminum foil on a cutting board and a piece of plastic wrap with the same size.

Transfer the mixture onto the wrap and fold the wrap lengthwise and roll it up a bit.

Next, fold the foil and twist it in the opposite direction to resemble a firm log.

Put it in the fridge for at least 3 hours to set.
