Avocado Hummus


This Avocado Hummus recipe is like guacamole and hummus in one, and it is the smoothest and creamiest hummus recipe I’ve ever made! And the flavor unbelievably delicious! Perfect for pita chips and veggies, or use it as a spread on your favorite deli style turkey or veggie sandwich.

This easy avocado hummus dip is the perfect snack any day any time! Who could resist?

Snacky? Think Avocado Hummus!

Here’s how I want to get part of my veggie intake for the day! My whole family loved this hummus recipe, kids included (and that’s saying something, I hated hummus when I was a kid).

This homemade hummus can be made in under 10 minutes and it makes for the perfect midday snack. If you make it to take to a party, you likely will be coming home without a drop left.

So Delicious, AND Healthy!

This is the best hummus recipe, I seriously could not stop eating it and I didn’t have to feel guilty since it’s a healthy dip. 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 avocado hummus just as much as guacamole and tortilla chips.

Hummus Recipe Adjustments

If you’d like the avocado flavor to shine through more in this hummus recipe you can reduce the tahini slightly, but if you want it to have more of a traditional hummus flavor leave it as it is.

I did add the cilantro to mine, I just left it off for the pictures so you could see what the hummus looked like better (just in case you were wondering).

  • Keith: I’ve been trying different avocado hummus recipes. Some use water or yogurt. They were all pretty good but this one, I think, is the best yet. Thick and creamy, not overly flavorful and just right.
    Thanks for sharing this!! July 13, 2019 at 8:02pm Reply

  • M: So creamy and yummy. Make it for parties all the time. Friends demand I bring it and ask for recipe often! May 22, 2019 at 8:15am Reply

  • Rachel: SO YUMMY!!! I didn’t have any tahini so I left that out. I also used garlic powder instead of cloves. It’s so good. May 11, 2019 at 6:29pm Reply

  • Sarah Holstein: This is the BOMB!!! I make it my Vita Mix with 2 cans of chic peas, draining only 1 of them. I use 3 avocados, the juice of 1 lemon & a boatload of cilantro, tahini & garlic, about a teaspoon of each. Everyone loves it & asks for the recipe. Thanks for sharing. May 1, 2019 at 11:26pm Reply
