Vegan Avocado Dip

Hello Foodies,
          Nowadays this creamy, refreshing and green fruit, Avocado is my favorite fruit
to eat for any meal. Here is another favorite dish I like to prepare, and it's a slightly different version of traditional guacamole. This avocado dip or guacamole tasted wonderful with cucumber, carrots or with celery or even goes well with tortilla, beans, rice or with chips. They're always delicious, creamy and so perfect. I still keep looking for lighter and healthy recipes to fit in my weight loss journey. This one is easy, great tasting and family favorite. While cucumber, carrots, and celery is sitting to allow the flavors to blend, my husband loves this! You can scoop it up with chips, or cucumber, spoon it with rice or spread over toast or eat it on its own. With busy weeknight, I often think about ways to put new and straightforward twists on things. This dip is flavored with the spicy jalapeno, fresh coriander leaves, and tangy-juicy lemon and is one of our favorite weeknight dishes. Avocado, tomatoes, pepper, lemon, onions they all ingredients I almost always keep in my fridge. All these ingredients make a best and healthy snack or appetizer.                   
         I have served this avocado dip with cucumber, carrots, and celery and these adds there health benefits to this dip, and it makes it more healthy, light and nutritious. 
           Cucumbers are high in soluble fiber and water and are low in calories, hence helps in promoting hydration and aiding in weight kids. While eating or using cucumbers in recipes, I never peel its skin, because cucumbers with peel provide the maximum amount of nutrients. It contains high amounts of antioxidants, which helps to reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
             Green pepper/ bell peppers are a good source of vitamin C, E and loaded with various other vitamins and minerals. Adding peppers to your regular diet may be an excellent way to lower the risk of anemia, visual impairments, and some chronic diseases.
              Celery has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that make it an ideal food for high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure patients. It helps to fight bacterial infections, boost the immune system. It also helps to cure bloating and improves digestion.
              Jalapenos are small and moderately spicy and are commonly used in Mexican cuisine. They are low in calories and are high in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. It helps in losing weight by increasing fat burn, reducing appetite and boosting metabolism.
              I like the heat from the jalapenos, tangy taste from the lemon juice and creamy, velvety avocados, and last but not the least, onion and pepper add the crunch to this dip. So let's start.
