Vegan Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

Vegan Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

Jump to Recipe

Looking for a salad dressing that your kids will love more than you?! This is it!

As soon as I pulled out the avocados, herbs and lemons….my two little boys ran around the kitchen shouting “Delicious!” and awaiting their “smoothie” hahaha. While this is not a smoothie, if your kid loves avocados as much as mine do…you might as well just let them drink it straight up.

More Kid Tips: The herbs can be added or not…as you wish. I would test out what the littles ones like and dislike by making super small batches with just a fork. Simply mash up some avocado and add in a pinch of parsley and basil. See how it goes. If they like it then go ahead and make a big batch of it! If not, you may want to swap out for a different herb or take the herbs out all together and just use spinach. Be sure to blend until VERY smooth. You can also use a cup of cannellini beans or garbanzo beans!

Benefits of Avocado and Parsley

Avocados

  • While most fruits are high in carbohydrates, avocados are high in wonderful healthy fats!
  • Avocados are very nutritious and contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals.
  • High in Vitamin K, Folate, Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin B5 & B6, and Vitamin E!
  • Contain more potassium than bananas!
  • Avocados tend to be rich in fiber — about 7% by weight, which is very high compared to most other foods. Fiber may have important benefits for weight loss and metabolic health.

Parsley

  • EXCELLENT source of Vitamin C.
  • Parsley is a nutritional powerhouse with vitamins A, B, C and K and the minerals iron and potassium.
  • Fantastic to kill bloat and reduce water weight.
  • It’s a natural diuretic, which helps to eliminate excess fluid without depleting the body of potassium.
  • Aids in balancing blood sugar, helping with long-term weight balance. It also plays a key role in preventing the degenerative effects of diabetes on the liver.
