Avocado Hummus

Avocado Hummus

Hummus! Yum! Avocados! Yum!

I know some people don’t like avocados, but the hubs and I eat them almost everyday. We LOVE them! So when one of my awesome ladies in my challenge group(aka online fitness accountability group) shared this recipe, I HAD to try it out!

And I wasn’t disappointed!

It’s SO good

SO simple

SO easy!

First off, in case you didn’t know – avocados are a super healthy fat!

Avocados have vitamins and minerals, fiber, antioxidants, Carotenoids which are beneficial for eye health, and healthy fat

– which I already mentioned :)!

This recipe doesn’t have any added oil because the avocado is taking the place of the olive oil and tahini in regular hummus.

Try it – and let me know what you thought! It’s sure to please YOU and your friends as it has ours!!

Avocado Hummus


This recipe is from Vanessa @VeganFamilyRecipes.com

Serves: 2 cups


  • 1½ cups Chickpeas ( rinsed and drained from a can or soaked and cooked)
  • 1 Avocado
  • small handful fresh Cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Lime Juice
  • 5 tablespoons Water
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 – 2 Garlic Cloves (optional)
  • Red Pepper Flakes (optional)


  1. Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Garnish with red pepper flakes (optional).
  3. Serve with crackers, pita bread, vegetables, or use as a spread on sandwiches.


1.) If hummus is too thick, add more water. If it is too runny, add a few more chickpeas.
2) This hummus is made without tahini. You can add tahini or sesame paste to this recipe if you like for a more “traditional” hummus flavor. Add a bit more water, lime juice, and salt to taste and texture.
