    1 cup firmly packed fresh Basil Leaves
    1 Avocado- peeled, pitted and sliced
    up to 3/4 cup of Olive Oil (depending on desired thickness)
    2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
    juice from 1/2 Lemon
    1/2 cup Cashews (or you may use walnuts or pine nuts)
    2-3 cloves of peeled fresh Garlic (I love garlic and used 4)!
    Sea Salt and fresh ground Pepper (to taste)


1) Remove pit from avocado and cut it into slices. Put avocado and all other ingredients (except for the olive oil) into a food processor and blend until ingredients are mixed together well.

2) Slowly pour in the olive oil while the food processor is turned on until desired texture is reached.

3) You can adjust ingredients accordingly. You may want to add more lemon juice, olive oil or garlic depending on your preference.
