Homemade avocado hollandaise sauce sounds scary to make. Is it?

If you’ve never made your own hollandaise sauce before, let me be the first to tell you that it’s one of the easiest sauces you can make at home.

You can either make it in a blender or in a food processor as I did.

What is the key to making the best avocado hollandaise sauce?

The trick to making this buttery, tangy Avocado Hollandaise Sauce thick and creamy is to temper egg yolks with a tiny bit of hot butter.

By adding more hot butter, little by little, the sauce thickens in only a matter of minutes. It’s truly magical!

What is the key to making the best avocado hollandaise?

After making a standard hollandaise sauce, the secret to making my creamy avocado Hollandaise is simple.

By adding ripe avocado, a splash or two of hot sauce, and finally a squeeze of fresh lime juice for a tasty and unique twist on all the other hollandaise sauce recipes out there.

Dare to be different, my friends! 🙂

How long will avocado hollandaise sauce keep in the fridge?

The addition of the lime juice will help keep the bright, vibrant green of the sauce from turning brown over time.

Because of this, the sauce will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

What are some of the health benefits of avocados?

  1. They contain more potassium than bananas.
  2. They’re loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.
  3. Avocados can lower cholesterol.
  4. They are loaded with anti-oxidants.
  5. They’re loaded with fiber.
  6. Eating avocados may help you lose weight.

How do you know when an avocado is ripe?

If an avocado is rock-hard when you press it lightly, it is not yet ripe.

A ripe avocado will give way to a little pressure when pressed.

However, if an avocado is too ripe, it will be very soft under very little pressure, so don’t purchase those.

It will be easy to remove the stem “button” (for lack of a better word) from a ripe avocado, and under that button will be a nice green color.

If an avocado is not yet ripe, that button will be hard to remove, and if it is too ripe, the button will fall off easily (or maybe it’s already gone) and under that button, the flesh will be brown.

Leave that avocado at the store.

Is there a way to quickly ripen an avocado at home?

Yes, never fear.

Wrap an unripe avocado tightly in foil and place it a low (200-degree) oven for 10-15 minutes.

Doing this will accelerate the ripening process, and you’ll be ready to use those unripe avocados in your favorite recipes, once cooled.

Other uses for avocado hollandaise sauce:

This homemade avocado hollandaise sauce would be a welcome addition over just about any vegetable.

I think it will be especially delicious over seasonal roasted Brussels sprouts in the fall, and roasted broccoli all year round.

Also, by mixing it in with a touch of buttermilk you’ve got a creamy and delicious dressing to go over the top of your favorite salad.

Of course, you can always serve avocado hollandaise sauce over eggs on top of English muffins or toast for a delicious twist on the standard eggs Benedict.

Then, add the roasted asparagus to the top of the eggs and pour on some creamy avocado hollandaise sauce.

Breakfast, brunch, or dinner will never be the same!

How to make avocado hollandaise sauce:

  • Use a food processor to mix the egg yolks.
  • Slowly stream in a little bit of hot butter to the egg yolks and continue to mix.
  • Add a little more hot butter, mix, add a little more hot butter, mix, (etcetera) until all the melted butter is incorporated into the egg yolks.
  • The sauce will become pale in color and thick.
  • Squeeze fresh lime juice into the sauce and add 1 ripe avocado (skin and pit removed).
  • Add a splash (or two) of hot sauce (optional) to the food processor.
  • Return the cover to the processor and process until the sauce is smooth and creamy.
  • If desired, add a touch of olive (or avocado oil) and process again if you’d like your creamy avocado hollandaise sauce a little looser.

    Loved the extra creaminess from the avocado! Genius!

  14. Could this be made with coconut oil instead of butter for those who can’t have dairy?

    • Hi, Zack. That’s a great question. I’m going to suggest using hot avocado oil instead of the coconut oil because sometimes coconut oil has a light coconut flavor (depending on the brand). As long as you slowly stream the hot oil into the eggs, it should have the same effect of using hot butter, but without the diary.
      I hope this helps. Enjoy the recipe!!
