Simple Avocado Cream Sauce

This was my very first attempt at making a “paleo” cream sauce, without dairy! I totally winged it…and it was fabulous not to mention easy. Put it on eggs, steamed veggies, zoodles (or any other vegetable noodle), paleo biscuits, meat, seafood, etc.! I suppose you could eat it as a soup too, it’s rich. It’s very versatile and keeps well.

Avocado Cream Sauce

  • 2 cans coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 avocados
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 pkg baby crimini mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 TBSP garlic powder
  • Ground black pepper
  • Himalayan pink salt

Add the 2 cans of coconut milk to a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Add the 1 1/2 avocados (I would’ve added 2, but the 1/2 of the 2nd avo was no good), and let the avo soften in the heat for a few minutes. With an immersion blender, blend the avocados into the coconut milk – took about 3 minutes. Add the garlic cloves, and all spices. Saute over medium heat for 15-20 minutes continuing to stir then add the chopped mushrooms. Continue sauteing over medium heat until the mushrooms are soft to your liking (I don’t like mushy mushrooms, but it’s taste/texture preference here).

Tip: If you use a quality coconut milk, you won’t taste any coconut 😉

First, I put it on my zoodles – which, don’t really look like “zoodles” because the gargantuan zucchini didn’t exactly want to work with my spiralizer. Haha. There was zucchini flying everywhere and puppy Lucy was happy about that.IMG_7139[1]IMG_7140[1]IMG_7143[1]
