Avocado Poppy Seed Dressing - A easy and super delicious dressing that is great on fruit salads, or used as a dip! #LoveAvocado

If you are a regular reader here at A Family Feast, you might have noticed that we’ve got a bit of a pattern going with our posts this week!  Decadent recipe…healthier recipe…decadent recipe…today’s healthier recipe…  For us – especially as food bloggers – it’s all about trying to find balance with what we eat!

In between preparing the rich and creamy pasta recipes, and the sweet desserts that we often share here on A Family Feast, Jack and I try as much as possible to eat a healthy diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables!  Our Avocado Poppy Seed Dressing allows us to enjoy the best of both worlds – a rich, sweet and creamy dressing that’s filled with nutrients and naturally good fats thanks to delicious, ripe Hass avocados!

Avocado Poppy Seed Dressing - A easy and super delicious dressing that is great on fruit salads, or used as a dip! #LoveAvocado

Our avocado poppy seed dressing is quick and easy to make – and it’s also very versatile!  We like to toss it with cut fruit (and chunks of ripe avocado!) for a delicious fruit salad.  Or – it also makes a delicious, creamy dip next to a fruit platter.  I’ve even used this as a regular salad dressing over crisp lettuce and vegetables!  And because avocados are nutrient-dense, cholesterol-free, sodium-free and have less than one gram of sugar per serving, they are a great substitute for foods that are high in saturated fats.

Avocado Poppy Seed Dressing

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cups


This recipe is great served as a dressing over a fruit salad, or served on the side as a dipping sauce for a platter of fresh fruit and fresh sliced avocados.


  • 1 ripe Haas avocado
  • ½ ripe mango, peeled, pit removed and diced
  • ½ cup agave nectar or mild honey
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • ½ teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 6-ounce can pineapple juice
  • ¼ cup apple juice or cider, plus more if needed
  • ½ teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • Juice from one lime


  1. Slice avocado in half and remove the pit (see our How-To Pit an Avocado here). Spoon avocado out of the skin and place into a blender.
  2. Add the diced mango into the blender with the avocado, as well as all of the other ingredients.
  3. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add additional apple juice to make a thinner consistency if needed.
