Pesto Sauce

Gut health is SO trendy right now. (Gut health is the entire reason anyone would do AIP. It’s an immune protocol that is design to give your gut a break and let your body heal itself.) A happy gut is kind of my favorite thing. Seeing people transform their lives and set themselves up for a higher quality future is just the absolute best. I am dying to drop some knowledge bombs on here very soon to help push everyone along with some extra tools in their toolbelt.

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to make the most of life myself and whenever I have a win I want to scream it from the mountaintops.

AIP Pesto Sauce

Dairy free, AIP-friendly and super high in flavor! We originally made this sauce to liven up our sweet potato gnocchi, but we'd do it again and again.

Cuisine Italian
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 medium avocado
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp (or more) water
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • zest from 1 lemon for garnish
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves
  • 1 handful fresh parsley


  1. Using a high powered blender or a food processor, toss in all of the ingredients and pulse/blend until smooth and creamy.

  2. We used a vitamix and had to stop and stir it and add extra water a few times do get the whole batch to become smooth.
