Creamy Avocado Cashew Pesto

print recipe

Rich and creamy avocado and cashew pesto is a perfect easy topping for chicken, fish, steak, and in pasta salads! 


This avocado and cashew pesto is so delicious - I love it on chicken, in pasta, or over rice!




So at this point I’m going to make a confession – one of my biggest, deepest, darkest secrets.


I don’t really like avocados.


I know, I know – what kind of person am I?? I mean, I was born and raised in Southern California and everything.

Maybe all the later years in Colorado changed me- because I just don’t love avocados.

I’m fine with them *in* food though – and I know how good avocados are for a balanced diet full of omega 3 fatty acids.

This pesto is SO full of flavor… both avocado freaks and avocado-phobes will LOVE it!


Yum- my favorite summer pesto! This creamy avocado pesto is SOOO good
