Raita is flavored yogurt with veggies, fruits, nuts, etc. and is a common condiment in Indian households. Since yogurt is an excellent probiotic, we try to eat it every day – tastes great and good for the gut! Read: “10 healthy foods to eat every day.Avocados, on the other hand, are a source of good fat (mono-unsaturated fats.)

Although we usually have Raitas with Rice dishes, this Avocado-Walnut Raita is very delicious and filling enough to have as a stand-alone midday snack.

Gluten-Free 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup yogurt (plant-based for vegan)
