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).

  • maxine peacock: Should you put olive on top to keep the avocado from browning November 5, 2018 at 6:50am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I don’t think the oil will keep it from browning. For storing avocado I usually try a light acidic layer like lime or lemon on the surface and pressing plastic wrap directly against the surface. Even then though sometimes avocado just goes brown :(. Hass avocados definitely seem to keep better though. November 9, 2018 at 2:40pm Reply
