Ingredients You’ll Need for This Wrap

Greek yogurt (2 tbsp) – Greek yogurt is a great item to have in your fridge at all times. Plain Greek yogurt can easily be flavored to you liking, whether it’s sweet or savory.

If you are watching your weight, you should look for Greek yogurt with a low-fat percentage and not buy full-fat Greek yogurt.

Avocado (1 small) – Fresh avocados are incredibly delicious in many recipes. They are high in fiber and healthy fats that will help you feel full.

Tortillas (5) – (I’m using Weight Watchers because they’re low in calories) Try to find a tortilla that is low in calories and carbohydrates. Keep in mind that not all tortillas are created equal!

Pesto (3 tbsp) – Pesto is a blend of fresh basil, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, and olive oil. A little bit of pesto will go a long way when it comes to flavoring a dish.

English cucumber (1 large) – English cucumbers are a great vegetable that helps you stay hydrated. They are also linked to aiding in weight loss and healthy digestion.

Fresh dill (1 tbsp) – Fresh dill adds a very distinct flavor that really brings out the dish’s freshness. It’s a good herb to have on hand to add to salads and other meals.

If you don’t like dill, there are some alternatives you can try. You can use another fresh herb like basil, parsley, or chives. Try sticking to fresh herbs over dried herbs for the best flavor for this recipe, though.

Mixed leaf salad (2 cups) – Having a bag of mixed greens on hand is beneficial. The salad is already prepped (and usually washed) for you.

Sea salt (to taste)

How to Make Avocado Wrap

Step 1. First, you’re going to want to add the chopped cucumber, yogurt, pesto, and fresh dill to a bowl. Gently mix everything together so that the ingredients are coated evenly.

Step 2. Next, you’ll want to line up your tortillas so they will be ready to build all at once. Scoop a small portion of the cucumber mix onto each tortilla.

Then gently place the sliced avocados on top of the mixture.

Step 3. Roll up each tortilla (like a soft taco)

Step 4. Now they are ready to serve.

Are Wraps Healthy?

Wraps are a terrific way to get your “sandwich fix” without using bread. They are also just really fun to eat and easy to put together!

Generally, wraps have fewer carbohydrates and calories than sliced bread. Some wraps are flavored and have other healthy ingredients like sun-dried tomato wraps or spinach wraps.

The options are endless when you have a stash of healthy wraps in the fridge. Not only can you make this delicious avocado wrap, but you can make any sandwich into a wrap.
