Avocado Dip Veggie Shooters

Whip up a batch of Avocado Dip Veggie Shooters if you want to make some healthy green dip recipes for St. Patrick’s Day!

What makes this avocado dip so perfect for St Patrick’s Day? Well, it’s GREEN!

But that’s not all. This avocado dips recipe is served in a tall shot glass making it an easy-to-eat party appetizer.

Serving the dip this way lets your guests walk around with the little shot glass while they mingle. They just dip the crunchy vegetable sticks into the avocado dip on the go!

How to make avocado dip and fill the veggie shooters

Making the dip:

I made my avocado dip recipe in my high speed blender. (You could use your food processor, too.)

I just put the avocado, Greek yogurt, lime juice, chili powder and salt into the blender and pulse until smooth. Super easy.

Using a blender or food processor guarantees that your dip is nice and smooth with no lumps.

How to get the dip in the shot glasses:

The tricky part is getting the avocado dip into the shot glasses. Don’t attempt to spoon the dip into the glasses or you’ll have a big mess on your hands!

If you have tall shot glasses like the ones shown in the pictures, the easiest way to get the dip into the shot glasses is to pipe it into the glasses with a pastry bag.

Pastry bag method: First, snip the end of a pastry bag to make an 1-inch wide opening. Then tie off that end with a clip and place the bag in a tall, heavy glass.

Then fill the pastry bag part way with the dip. Remove the clip, then pipe the dip into the glasses.

Piping Avocado Dip into Veggie Shooters

Ziploc baggie method: If you don’t have a pastry bag, fill a gallon Ziploc baggie with the avocado dip. Push all the air out and zip close the bag.

Snip off one bottom corner to make a 1-inch hole. Then squeeze the dip out of the bag into the shot glasses.

The Ziploc baggie method is probably more practical as you can put all your dip into the baggie and then leave it in the refrigerator until just before party time.

Leave some of the shot glasses empty and fill them with veggie sticks. I like a mixture of celery and pepper strips. The more colorful, the better!

This Mama’s tips for making your avocado dips recipe a hit!

Make your avocado dip spicy:

If you’d like a spicier avocado dip, you can season it with ground cayenne pepper or a dash of your favorite hot sauce.

If you prefer a smokier taste dip, try smoked paprika.

Don’t have lime juice? Use lemon juice instead. But don’t leave either out. The citrus juice keeps the avocado from turning dark green or even greyish!

Can’t find ripe avocados? Don’t you hate not finding ripe avocados at the store when you need them?

Try the organic section. I’ve had better luck there and paying a little more is worth the convenience.

Layer it! If you want to make festive party appetizers, make up a batch of Greek yogurt seasoned with just lime juice, salt and chili powder. Then pipe in a layer of avocado dip, a plain yogurt layer, then an avocado layer. Pretty!

      My kids were totally into the little glasses and I actually didn’t mind them walking around with them. They’re perfect for parties that way and you don’t have to worry about double dipping since you have your own perfect portion.
