Almost Guacamole Yogurt Dip


Enjoy this supersimple light dip with veggies or whole-wheat pita chips. 

  1. For best results, strain yogurt: Line a strainer with cheesecloth and place in a medium bowl. Place yogurt on cheesecloth, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Combine strained yogurt, sour cream, and avocados in a food processor. Add remaining ingredients. Purée until smooth. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors.
