Avocado Crema Dip

Makes: 1 1/2 cup 

This is so smooth and creamy, and the prettiest pale green.  Match it up with a Cucumber Melon Cooler to keep the green theme going.  Add a pinch of cayenne or chili powder if you want some heat with your cool creaminess!

Cut up raw vegetables would be great with this, too in addition to the chips. Click here for tips on how to put together a great crudite platter!
