  • ½ cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon cumin

  1. Combine avocado and Greek yogurt in the bowl of a food processor. Process for 1 minute until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the bowl half way through.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and process again for 2 minutes until very smooth and only tiny bits of the cilantro are visible.
