Aioli Avocado Dip (Egg-Free)
This aioli avocado dip is creamy, rich, and garlicky. Dip fries into it, put it on a burger, use it as a condiment for meat to make any dish taste a lot more delicious. It is easy to make – you won’t need a mortar. The recipe is gluten and dairy-free, egg-free, Paleo, and AIP. My favorite way to eat this dip is with cheesy truffle fries and a nutrient-dense bison burger.

Aioli Avocado Dip
Dips and sauces make everything taste so much delicious, right or right? If you feel like your diet is bland make sure you include some delicious dips. This is my latest creation and it is oh so delicious. Aioli is a traditional Mediterranean sauce made of garlic, olive oil, and salt. The are many variations of aioli, some including egg and mustard. To create the creamy consistency traditionally aioli is made using a mortar.
This is recipe is inspired by aioli with a different twist. I added avocado and coconut yogurt to get the creaminess without using eggs or a mortar because I know many people won’t have that. The aioli avocado dip recipe is easy to make, all you need to do is place all the ingredients in a blender. It iscreamy, rich, and garlicky and you can whip this up in just a few minutes. It also stores well in the fridge so you can make a lot and add a tiny bit to your meals throughout the week, you won’t regret it.

How to Find the Right Coconut Yogurt
The brand you choose is important when it comes to taste. Many popular brands have tons of additives that are potentially problematic and these varieties also don’t taste that great in my opinion.Anitas is my absolute favorite brand, Cocojune and Coyo are great as well. Choose the plain/natural variety. Always check the ingredients listed in the back and stick to the general rule of thumb: The fewer ingredients the better.
The best coconut yogurt brands will only have coconut, water, and probiotic cultures, sometimes tapioca or cassava. This is an example of some of the names that can be listed as probiotic cultures B. bifidum, B. lactis, L. acidophilus, L. casei, L. delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, L. rhamnosus, Streptococcus thermophilus. Don’t be scared by these complicated names, those are great for you. If you live in NYC check out Farm to People. I get most of my stuff from there.
Substitutions and Variations
- Garlic: You can play around with the amount of garlic you want to use. Anything between 2 to 4 cloves is great, depending on how garlicky you like it. This applies to medium cloves. Sometimes garlic cloves are gigantic, of that is the case I would use half the amount. A great way to figure out what works best for you is start with 2 cloves, taste and add more if you like.
- Coconut yogurt: If you have a coconut sensitivity you can simply omit the coconut yogurt and add a bit more avocado and olive oil instead. You could also use regular yogurt if you tolerate dairy. Opt for a grassfed variety.
- Avocado: If you are not a big fan of avocado you can use 1/4 of a medium avocado instead of 1/2, and use 1/4 olive oil.
- Make it thicker: If you would like the aioli avocado dip to be thicker, use 2 Tbsp olive oil only.
