Avocado Garlic Aioli

I like aioli. If you don’t like mayonnaise, you probably don’t even think you will like aioli. I first experienced an aioli while eating fries. It was life changing. I have always loved mayo and ketchup with my fries.  But, this my friends, is by far my favorite aioli.

Avocado Garlic AioliThe inspiration was loving to put avocado on my BLT. But that makes a fat sandwich. So I thought surely I can make an aioli out of avocados. The ingredients are simple. Sour cream, mayo, avocado, garlic, basil, shallots, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Avocado Garlic AioliI then decided to add a little bite, so threw in a banana pepper. Then pulse or puree.

Avocado Garlic AioliThen what, you ask? Treat it like any other condiment and spread it on your toast for a BLT. Dip your veggies in it. Put it on your eggs. Enjoy it!!

    I definitely want to try this, thanks! I’m probably gonna sub full fat Greek Gods for the sour cream. My wife is an avacado monster, so despite the fact that she doesn’t like mayo, I’m sure she’d try this.

    Made this today. Didn’t have shallots, so used chives. Didn’t have a banana pepper so didnt use it. Put this on toast points with a thin slice of carve master applewood smoked ham from Costco…yummers!

    I am going to try to make some using plain coconut yogurt and homemade mayo as I can’t have dairy or soy.

    Kids and hubby loved it!
