Halloween Avocado Buttermilk Ranch Dip @createdbydiane

October is here and Halloween is out and about in all the stores,

there will be parties and get togethers left and right.

This is one fun and delicious dip,

that will be great with veggies and chips.

All the great taste of a classic buttermilk ranch, with the creamy deliciousness of avocado.

The gorgeous green avocado makes for the perfect backdrop to create this fun spider web in…

and how fun is that spider.

Truth be told, this is the only spider I like!


I don’t like the creepy crawly Halloween stuff,

I tend to like the cute, fun, pumpkins such.

I love Fall, all the leaves are changing and the nights are getting cooler.

There is such fun all around, kids are picking out costumes, there are caramel apples all around and oh the candy….the aisles and aisles of candy that are in the stores has me thinking there needs to be something else to snack on,

that is where this dip comes in.

Grab some veggies or your favorite chips and begin dipping.

I think this will also be super-delicious with fresh baked hot pretzels….comfort food comes in many varieties. For me, it’s snacking and everyone thought this was the cutest dip.

I’m woking with California Avocados to bring you some delicious recipes, all opinions are my own. I happen to love California Avocados and am glad they are in season now! But they won’t be for long, so be sure to enjoy them now before the season ends. If you stock up on them and want to put some in freezer for months to come as you won’t find a better avocado until spring time. Take a look at this post on How to Freeze Avocados, it’s a must this time of year.




  1. 5 stars
    This looks fabulous! I will make using plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream for an extra protein punch. My family will love this served with cute raw veggies and/or pita & bagel chips!

  2. I luv ranch and then adding avocados just makes it that much more delicious! I’d opt for this dip any day over ketchup. 🙂
