Avocado Cilantro Lime Sauce

Greek yogurts (or icelandic skyrs, like siggi's) are great alternatives to things like sour cream, butter, cream cheese, whole milk - heavy dairy products. By using greek yogurt you cut down on saturated fat and increase protein. Siggi's is great because they aim to keep added sugars as low as possible and always have more protein than sugar. Plus, many people who are lactose intolerant can actually eat yogurt because of the bacteria in it.

When it comes to recipes, I'm all about simplicity. If it has more than 10 ingredients, I'm usually out. This sauce has just 5 ingredients that you probably already have on hand, and it tastes amazing on just about anything. It was also selected to be featured in the first Cooking with Siggi's Cookbook. I hope you enjoy it!
