Homemade Avocado Hummus

April 27, 2016

I know what you’re thinking… “Why make hummus if I can just buy it already made?”  Well, I’m telling you…this is like guacamole and hummus in one, and it is the smoothest and creamiest, most delicious hummus I’ve ever had! My kids loved it! In fact, my daughter was eating it by the spoonfuls. I couldn’t stop eating it either! And I didn’t even have to feel guilty about it since it’s loaded with nutrition, healthy fats from the olive oil, tahini, and avocado . This definitely beats having potato chips dipped in a mayo loaded ranch dip for an afternoon snack, or that candy bar we like to reach for when we think we are too hungry to wait for dinner. You might just find yourself craving this just as much as guacamole and tortilla chips.



Avocado Hummus



Pulse chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, and garlic in a food processor until smooth, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, add cumin and avocados and pulse mixture until smooth and creamy, about 1 – 2 minutes longer.

*Serve topped with more olive oil if desired, and sprinkle with cilantro, and red pepper flakes. Serve with pita chips, tortilla chips, use as a dip for your favorite veggies or on top of yummy seedy whole grain bread.

    I am not a fan of avcoados or hummus, but I made this and really liked it. I also cooked my own chickpeas and they were so much better than the can ones.
