Finding a recipe that tastes good and isn’t bad for your teeth tends to be difficult, but it’s not impossible. Take a twist with two of your favorite foods, yogurt, and avocado, to make this delicious creamy avocado yogurt dip. Use it as a quick alternative to traditional dips with pita chips, snack-sized vegetables or soft chips for a satisfying snack that doesn’t cake your teeth with sugar while giving you a burst of energy with its high protein content.


  • Two avocados with the peels and seeds removed and mashed if not using a blender or food processor
  • 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt as an alternative to sour cream or mayonnaise (Full fat or fat-free depending on your individual preferences)
  • Single clove of garlic or the equivalent of minced garlic
  • 3 TBS freshly chopped cilantro
  • 1 TBS chopped and seeded jalapeno pepper
  • A dash of cumin, salt, and pepper
  • 2 TBS lime juice
  • Soft chips, pita chips or veggies cut up to individual serving sizes
  • Food processor or blender (optional)


  • Pour the yogurt, avocados, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, lime juice and cilantro into your food processor or blender to mix everything together until it gets to a smooth, creamy texture. Add the salt and pepper after it is mixed to taste
  • Scrape the dip into a serving container and place the vegetables or chips around it to present to your guests at your next family function or party

Store it in the refrigerator with a cover if there is any left.

Finding food that doesn’t harm your teeth knocks most sugary sweets out of the picture, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste when entertaining guests.
