Avocado Pesto

If you love Avocados you will love this pesto. It’s great to make when you have a load of avocados that need using up and if you’re bored of making guacamole.

You can make it and jar it, it will keep in the fridge well as there is enough lime and lemon to not let it brown, you can also freeze it in small portions, either in an ice cube tray or a lolly maker.

They are full of vitamins and nutrients, such as potassium, protein and vitamins; B K C and E. They are good for your body inside and out.

This recipe is quick, easy and healthy and also lets the avocados last that little bit longer; if you seal them in an airtight container. 

Ingredients:

2 ripe avocados

3 cups spinach

Juice 1 lemon

Juice 1 lime

1 chilli de-seeded

1/3 cups of nuts (I used a mix of pistachio and pine nuts)

20g fresh basil

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup grated parmesan

2 cloves of garlic

1 tsp sea salt

Method:

In a hand blender (I used my smoothie maker) blitz all the ingredients up until smooth.
