Printz loves guacamole, but wanted to come up with an alternative recipe for creamy avocados. She says this spread is a snap to make and adds lively flavor to simple meals.


  • 2 medium avocados, split, flesh scooped out
  • One 5-ounce package of chèvre
  • 3 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper


Place the avocado, chèvre, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, and salt in the bowl of a food processor blend until smooth. Season with pepper.

Serving suggestions: Serve on crostini with fresh cracked pepper or cayenne pepper and shaved Parmesan cheese. Or spread over sautéed or grilled ahi tuna or salmon. Add to a vegetarian or tuna sandwich. Or serve as a dip for chips or veggies. Whichever option you choose, dust with cayenne pepper and serve with lemon wedges.
