Avocado Pesto Sauce Recipe

I like pesto on just about everything so when I make it, I make a big batch to keep in the fridge or freezer. Lately I’ve been adding avocado to my pesto to give it a creamier consistency while adding a dose of healthy fats. It also makes the meal more satisfying and filling. Enjoy this on zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash, any sort of noodle or as a dipping sauce!
