Yam and Avocado Spreads

  • Prep time 10 mins

Wraps are the quintessential summer food for us. Using a wholegrain shell and loading in tonnes of veggies make for a healthy quick meal. Below we provide you with some very tasty and nutritious options to the standard mayo or ranch dressing that you normally find as a wrap spread.



Yam Spread:

  1.  In a mixing bowl add cooked yams. With a fork mash until smooth. Alternatively add yams to a food processor and puree until smooth.
  2.  Add lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix well.

Avocado Spread:

  1.  In a mixing bowl add avocado. With a fork mash until smooth.
  2.  Add juice, onion, chilli powder, salt and pepper and mix well.


  1.  Either spread is a healthy substitute to mayonnaise in a wrap or sandwich. Just add your favourite protein and veggies, slap on some spread and you’ve got a gourmet wrap to sit down and enjoy or take with you on the go.
  2.  Avocado spread can be used in place of store bought guacamole.
  3.  Quick and affordable appetizer idea – serve as dip with veggies or a spread on crackers.


  •  Finely chopped cilantro, red bell pepper or garlic are great additions to either spread – fresh is best is this case
  •  Add a little heat to either recipe, with some finely chopped jalapeños
