Recipe: Avocado Hummus

Could we call this “guacahummus“? Probably. Blending chickpeas and avocados with olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, and garlic makes such a smooth, creamy concoction. It is so fresh that you can taste each individual ingredient. Just incredible.

Avocado hummus has protein, healthy fats, and tons of flavor. Spread it on a tortilla to make a wrap or on bread for a sandwich, enjoy it as a dip for veggies or pita chips, or just spoon some directly into your mouth. However you eat it, this avocado hummus will blow your tastebuds out of the water — and it’s so easy and quick to whip up. Thanks, Joy the Baker, for the inspiration.
