This avocado hummus is so deliciously rich and creamy! The look is pure guacamole but the taste is hummus with a touch of amazing!
It’s crazily easy to make, you just make hummus and then add avocado!
We were actually eating this for a while before we actually made an ‘official’ batch of avocado hummus.
Basically we would just spoon some hummus into our mashed avocado. It made the avocado go further as well as adding in some protein to the dish.
Making your hummus like this from the start though works better as you get the perfect mix of flavors.
So you make the hummus first (as above) and then you add the avocado and process in until smooth!
And while I took this lovely photo below that’s actually not what ended up working for me! My food processor was not up to the task of such large pieces of avocado, so I had to cut them up smaller.
Also, two avocados were used and not one.
You can use one avocado if it’s a large one, but definitely use two if they are smaller or medium sized. You want that avocado flavor to be strong and not to get overwhelmed by the hummus.
Serve with some tortilla chips or flat breads or raw veggies if serving as a dip or spread it on bread or toast (my favorite way to eat this!).
I really think you will love this avocado hummus! It is:
- Perfect as a dip or spread
The avocado doesn’t oxidize very fast here because of the lemon juice, but I still wouldn’t keep this for super long or make it in advance. It’s so quick and easy to throw together that it’s easy to make it when you need it.
