Vegan Green Goddess Dressing

I want to be a Goddess.

Or even better, a glowing Goddess.

Meow.

However, I don’t always feel like a Goddess in my day to day life.

Being a baker & food blogger covered in syrup, flour, and who knows what else on a daily basis isn’t exactly Goddess material. Neither is my worn apron with oats stuck to it, my lunch lady hair net, or my flustered red face when baking Glo Bars in the summer heat. And if you think I actually bake in heels, I’m sorry, I really am.

It’s frump town over here most days.

Frump.

Town.

Though when I do get dressed up for a special event, it’s extra special. This weekend I’ll be dressed to the nine’s for my brother-in-law’s wedding, complete with sparkly jewelry, an evening clutch, heels, and a cocktail dress. And if I’m lucky, a cocktail in my hand.

Berry lipgloss…much to Eric’s chagrin.

Shimmery eye shadow, black eye liner, and mascara.

I guess I better find that cocktail dress…

Sometimes, though, feeling like a Goddess comes from within. [OK, I might sound like a certain women’s shaving commercial at this point, but go with it.] Sometimes a workout makes me feel like a Goddess. I rocked out a 60 minute spin class this morning and I left dripping in sweat and beet red in the face. Total Goddess.

And often, FOOD makes me feel like a Goddess! That’s the best. Eating a vegan diet makes me feel like a Goddess. No matter what things in my life are going on that make me feel the opposite of a Goddess, sometimes all I need is one rockin’ recipe to give me a kick to my step.

This is that recipe.

Have you heard of the famous Green Goddess Dressing which is thought to hail from the Palace Hotel in San Francisco? It’s a pretty big deal. I finally decided that I would make a vegan version, cuz you know, the original has 3 cups of MAYO in it.

I don’t know who equated mayonnaise and feeling like a Goddess, but it must have been a man.

Ladies, this one is for you.

Finger-licking good.

The avocado replaced the mayo in this recipe VERY well. Love avocado as a mayo replacer! This dressing would also be amazing poured over my Protein Powder Goddess Bowl. I will be trying that tonight!

I also won’t tell you how much I ate yesterday. That would be embarrassing…

Let’s just say I felt like a Goddess for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

P.S.- I had so much fun chatting with you on facebook yesterday! I’m pretty sure my productivity went down about 5 hours, but who’s counting? It’s so fun to get to know you guys on a more interactive level and see your lovely faces.

If you’re looking for me you can find me on Facebook asking random questions, gushing about food, posting pics, and rambling on about body image epiphanies.

You’ve referenced mayo several times in the comments but I don’t see it listed as an ingredient. Am I miss reading something? Thanks!

Hey Rachel, Mayo is often an ingredient in green goddess dressings, but in this particular recipe it’s replaced entirely by avocado – so no worries, you’re not missing anything. :) That said, my more recent version of a green goddess dressing does feature a bit of mayo, and that one’s found here. I hope this helps!

Thanks for the awesome recipe.

Do you have any recommendations for omitting the oil? Like should we add more liquid to the recipe? Or just omit and see how it comes out?

Hey Christina, I’m sorry, I haven’t tried this myself. But, you could certainly try omitting the oil! My guess is that it would still taste nice without it since there are fats from the mayo and avocado in there. :) And you could experiment a bit and try adjusting other ingredients if you think it’s necessary.

I love this recipe!

To make it extra healthy/sexy/green I like to add 1-2 tsp of spirulina! The other flavours do a great job of cancelling out its funky after-taste :)

Will the recipe still taste good without the oil?
