Easy, creamy, and healthy avocado hummus with only 6 ingredients is a delicious snack that can be made in minutes! (vegan, gluten-free)
Want to know something funny? I never really ate hummus much until I moved to Dallas.
I attribute this peculiar fact to a few things. First, the girls in my class at school all eat hummus like it’s going out of style. And since we are around each other for an average of 8 hours a day, 5 days a week (or we were last year anyway), I picked up on their addictive habit. Second, hummus is much more popular in grocery stores here in Dallas than where I lived before. Cue the buying of the hummus. Third, my husband and I lived within walking distance of a fabulous Mediterranean restaurant when we first moved here. Hence, the frequent ordering of the hummus there.
Now that I’ve joined this century and jumped on the hummus wagon, I’m so happy I did! Because I eventually got around to making it myself (as I do with everything) and came up with this beauty. And guess what? It’s SO easy to make! (Not to mention much cheaper and fresher than the store bought kind!)
I present to you, Avocado Hummus. This recipe is dedicated to my classmates. Because not only are they frequent consumers of hummus, but they are also avid avocado eaters. Which I might be guilty of too… The answer to all of life’s nutrition problems in our eyes is to add some avocado. Which I don’t hate at all. Because who doesn’t love avocado? It makes everything better, including (yes) hummus! Plus, they’re full of all kinds of vitamins and healthy unsaturated fats.
So try this now! Even your non-nutrition friends will love it, I promise! It’s so easy to whip up last minute, and goes great with everything. I usually serve it with cut-up veggies, but you can serve it with crackers and pita bread, too. Don’t forget I love to see your pictures if you try out my recipes on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with @LivelyTable and #LivelyTable!
