This Honey Yogurt Avocado Dip is a great start to any and every party. It’s vastly becoming our favorite snack for family game night with the grandchildren or movie “date night” for my husband and I, and yes, we still, at our age, have our date nights. With as many grandchildren (7) we have to schedule a date night or we would be flooded with grandchildren every night of the week. This Honey Avocado Dip is a great way to get them to eat all kinds of fresh vegetables. Although, most everyone here loves them.

We last made this Honey Yogurt Avocado Dip when the grandchildren were here during the school vacation to go along with our Taco Tuesday Salads. My grandson Mason named that recipe and my head food critic (my granddaughter Autumn) named this one. I think they’ve helped to name most of my recipes, and believe me, nothing leaves my kitchen without them giving it the taste test first. These kids are just too crazy for me and I think they watch too many cooking shows. They keep telling me I should apply to be on Chopped if they had a Grammie’s show. I just look at them and laugh and say “you’ve been chopped”.

*If you’re able to get local raw honey, I would suggest doing so. There’s so many health benefits in using local honey from your area. Not only does it taste good, but if you suffer from allergies it can help lesson them.

This Honey Yogurt Avocado Dip is wonderful to bring along to a family gathering, office party and healthy treat for school. The dip is so light and refreshing and goes well with any fresh vegetable. One of my all-time favorites to dip is jicama; its crisp, slightly sweet taste and celery texture is a winner for this dip. The grandchildren love dipping carrots, celery, and fresh green beans for their super healthy and delicious snack. No matter where you take this refreshing Honey Yogurt Avocado Dip – it’s going to put smiles on whoever gets the chance to dip it!

From my kitchen to yours,

  1. Tina this dip sounds so flavorful and delicious to me. I love that you got chopped by your grandkids! I also love that they are being exposed to cooking and cooking shows. I think if I’d been brought up with these shows I would have gone to culinary school

    • Me as well Julie! I am hoping that two of my grandchildren are really going to love cooking. They so enjoy being in the kitchen with me now and it warms my heart to know they can’t wait to come over and hit the kitchen with me.

  2. This looks so delicious, I love anything with avocado but it’s even better with honey added – amazing!
    It sounds like you have your hands full with all those grandchildren (as many as my mum actually, but 6 of them come from the same daughter, my older sister, so she has her hands full most of all!) but I bet you wouldn’t have it any other way – especially since they seem to be chief recipe namers and testers haha!

    • You are so very right Michelle – I wouldn’t have it any other way! My day becomes brighter with them in my life.

  3. I made this yesterday and my kids loved it. I plan to be sending them to school with some of it everyday to get some greens into their diet. If I make a big batch of this how long do you think it will keep in the refrigerator? Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Rach! I’m so glad you and your family liked the Honey Yogurt Avocado Dip, it’s my families favorite. You could keep it for at least a week in the refrigerator. Mine has not lasted that long in this house 🙂 Just make sure you stir it really well before serving as the yogurt does release some of it’s water while sitting. Thank you so much for your great feedback!
