This 5-minute avocado lime crema recipe tastes amazing on tacos, burrito bowls, quesadillas, burgers, and more! It’s made with healthy greek yogurt instead of sour cream.


  • 1 large avocado, pitted
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt or coconut yogurt
  • 1/4 cup coriander (cilantro)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, scraping sides down as needed.
  2. Transfer to a jar or a squeeze bottle and serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve.


Store: Refrigerate leftover crema in a sealed jar, container or squeeze bottle for up to 5 days.
