Ever since avocados stepped on the mainstream scene a few years ago (thanks, millennials), they have been turned into everything. Avocado toast and avocado salsa are just the start of it, and now avocado pesto dip is sold at Aldi to prove that the green fruit can truly be turned into anything.

It's safe to say that Aldi knows what it's doing when it comes to dips. The grocery store sells crab rangoon dip and lobster roll dip, so it's only right that they made something creative with avocado.

The avocado pesto dip is totally plant-based, meaning it's also dairy-free for all of those lactose intolerant people who have trouble finding chip accompaniments they can enjoy. It can be found on shelves with plant-based queso and cilantro dip, so there's really a flavor to fit everyone's liking.

Aldi's pesto dip looks like a lighter green color than a traditional pesto, but that also means it's probably creamier. Since it's a dip and not a sauce, avocado pesto would definitely be better to use as a side with veggies or pita chips or even as a spread on a sandwich rather than incorporating it into a pasta dish (but also, do you!). If you want to get creative with it, dipping Delish's air fryer pasta chips in the avocado pesto seems like the best of both worlds.

Each plant-based dip goes for around $3.99 per container and is a great low-carb and vegan option for those who have dietary restrictions. And let's be real, everything with avocado is good, so this dip is likely no exception.
