  • blender or food processor


  • 1 large or 2 small avocado
  • ¾ cup coconut milk with only compliant "clean" ingredients. I like Aroy-D's best, this one.
  • 1/2 to ¾ cup fresh cilantro loosely packed (about 1/2 a bunch); after trimming the ends, okay to use the stems
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil also fine to use olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano dried
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt


  • Combine all the ingredients in your blender or food processor. Purée until smooth. Enjoy!
