One of my all time favorite flavor combinations is cilantro and lime, hands down. There’s something about the duo that I find so satisfying. Truth be told, I have yet to meet a cilantro lime recipe that I didn’t like.

Unfortunately, many of my past go-to dishes combining the two ingredients are grain based and high in carbs. My killer panko-crusted chicken with cilantro-lime butter or “healthy” cilantro lime quinoa salad just don’t cut it on the keto diet.

I was craving this combination, racking my brain as to how I could best shovel cilantro-lime goodness into my mouth. Then it hit me: I need to make a condiment and apply generously to EVERYTHING in sight.

So I did: avocado cilantro lime mayonnaise! It’s perfect for dipping snacks and spreading onto, well, everything. Just as I intended. I rarely use the word “obsessed”, but I feel it may be okay in this context. It’s so effing good.

Not only does this recipe taste amazing, it is freakishly simple to make! There are only 4 ingredients total and NO cooking required. Bust out your blender, throw your ingredients in, and voila: cilantro lime heaven.

If you wanted to satisfy your ultra foodie side, you could definitely make your own mayonnaise rather than using store bought. But for the sake of simplicity, I used good ol’ mayo from the tub.

Try it as:
  • A salad dressing
  • Dip for veggies or low carb chips/fries
  • Condiments on a bun-free burger or sandwich

It’s great for keto because it’s essentially a fat bomb! Mayo and avocado offer loads of fat while keeping the carb count to a minimum. You will not feel guilty after eating this; it’s perfectly compliant with your ketogenic diet.

If you are attempting to sneak veggies into your diet, this is a pretty killer way to pack them in.
