Recipe Notes


This Avocado Crema can be made and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days IF you transfer the crema to an airtight container and place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the crema before adding the lid.  This will delay oxidization/browning that occurs when the surface of the dip/avocado come in contact with air.

The lime juice will also prevent the Avocado Crema from discoloring too much, but within the 3 days the very top layer will darken slightly.  I only notice a slight change in color as I stir the crema around.   A change in color of the crema isn’t bad, it simply means the dip is oxidizing.
