Creamy Vegan Avocado Dip (Oil-Free)

This oil-free Creamy Vegan Avocado Dip is like guacamole, but creamier! This dip is made with only six ingredients and you can whip it up in just 5 minutes.

Creamy Vegan Avocado Dip

Picture guacamole. Delicious right? Now picture a dip that's even richer and creamier than guacamole.

You're picturing this Creamy Vegan Avocado Dip!

This dip is literally like eating guacamole, but better. The dip is thick and creamy. It's super flavorful and pairs well with a number of dipping vessels.

I love eating this dip with my Garlic Parsnip Fries. Both have garlic and cilantro flavors going on - such a perfect pair.

You could also eat this dip with pita, tortilla chips, raw veggies, sweet potato fries. Whatever you like!!

Why I love this Creamy Vegan Avocado Dip

  • Dietary needs — this dip is dairy-free, plant-based, oil-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free
  • Quick and easy — it literally takes 5 minutes to whip up this avocado dip
  • Fun twist on guacamole — everyone loves guac, right? Well you're guac-loving friends will adore this dip too
  • Fiber — regular guacamole is by no means bad for you, but this creamy avocado dip has the extra benefits of protein and fiber from the addition of beans! Don't worry you can't taste them.

Ingredient Notes

  • Avocado: Make sure your avocado is ripe! This recipe is actually perfect for a slightly over-ripe avocado - once it's in the sauce you won't even notice if it's slightly too ripe.
  • White Beans: White beans make this dip thick and creamy! I used great northern beans, but another white bean like cannellini would work. Don't worry - you can't taste the beans at all
  • Cilantro: The cilantro is optional but adds a nice burst of freshness!
  • Garlic Powder: For some umami flavor!
  • Lemon Juice: The acid in the lemon juice helps keep the avocado from turning brown. Gotta keep that pretty green color! You could use lime juice instead
  • Salt

Creamy Vegan Avocado Dip Ingredients

How to make Creamy Vegan Avocado Dip without a blender

If you don't have a blender or a food processor, you have two options:

Option 1. Instead of blending, mash the beans and avocado like you would if you were making guacamole. The key would be to make sure the beans are very well mashed - you don't really want chunks of beans in your dip.

Option 2. Use a different ingredient to create creaminess. You could sub in some vegan cream cheese or vegan yogurt. Then just stir everything together.

In either scenario, you should finely chop the cilantro, so you don't have whole leaves of cilantro in the dip.

Hi Could you please confirm two things:1. The amount of salt. Seems like too much. 2. The directions say there is lemon juice in the dressing but it’s not listed under ingredients. ThanksL.
Hi there! Confirming that the two teaspoons of salt in the dressing is correct. I didn't salt the cauliflower when roasting it or the salad after it was done, so this amount of salt was perfect. If you're concerned about it you can decrease the amount of salt in the dressing and then add more at the end if you need it. As for the lemon juice, SO sorry about that! It was a typo in my directions and I've removed it now. Hope this helps :)

This looks lovely! Do you have a recipe for the red pepper hummus also? Thank you!
Hi Martha! I don't have a recipe for red pepper hummus on my site. I suggest taking a traditional hummus recipe and blending in roasted red pepper.

I tried these and they were delicious! A bit dense but flavorful and the "buckeye" blend of peanut and chocolate was on point! Recommend!
Yay! I'm so glad you liked them! -- Elizabeth

Hi, these look amazing. I was wondering, could I used powdered peanut butter in place of creamy for the recipe? thanks
Hi Grace! There is already some powdered peanut butter in this recipe, so adding more might make the texture more gluey. Also, the real peanut butter adds some fat, which helps create flavor. That said, if you want to use powdered peanut butter, I would suggest mixing it with a high-fat liquid like coconut cream and then measuring out 2/3 cup. Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes :) -- Elizabeth

You mention using vegetable broth in your introduction but it isn’t included in the recipe
Hi Becky - thanks for pointing this out. I have removed mention of vegetable broth from this post. You do not need any vegetable broth. The mushrooms will release natural liquid which will prevent any sticking. -- Elizabeth

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
