Spreads, dips and dressings to make clean eating more delicious!

Spicy Avocado Cream

Creamy, with a touch of smoky heat, this dairy-free 'cream' is a delicious way to spice up sandwiches, tacos, chili dishes or lettuce wraps (we especially love it on our pulled pork lettuce wraps). Besides adding flavour, this versatile cream adds loads of nutrients. Avocados are rich in folate, vitamin E, fibre and heart-healthy fats making this creamy condiment...

This version is sweet...
