Allow this to sit for 20 minute to allow the zucchini to release any excess moisture. Wrap zucchini noodles in a cheese cloth or paper towels and squeeze out extra moisture. Set aside. Place avocados, basil, 1 tsp. Himalayan Sea Salt Blend, Garlic Garlic, olive oil and lemon juice in a food processor; blend until smooth and creamy. Heat coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. Add zucchini noodles and Onion Onion; saute for 2-3 minutes. Add avocado sauce; toss to coat. Stir in or top with bacon pieces (if desired).
