Avocado Salad Dressing---Nut and Olive oil free
I am trying to really cut down on the amount of nuts and oils in my diet, especially since I can tell I have gained weight with all the nut-based Christmas goodies I was eating. So since I couldn't find a salad dressing in any of my recipe books without either a bunch of nuts or a cup of olive oil, I came up with this one tonight and it was a hit! The only fat is from the avocado and one Tbsp of coconut oil, so it's a great low-fat option. Plus coconut oil is a medium-chain triglyceride which actually helps burn fat! Enjoy!
1/4 cup raw honey
1 stick celery
1/2 large cucumber
Juice of one large lemon
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup Young Thai coconut water
1 Tbsp coconut oil
Dash of Celtic Sea Salt to taste
Blend all ingredients together until creamy, adding more purified water as needed for thinner consistency. Has a pretty soft green color.
