Avocado Hummus

Need a quick appetizer (or even meal replacement) that includes veggies but is still delightful? Yall gotta try out this quick and delicious fix: homemade avocado hummus. My MIL, Cheryl, started making this a couple of years ago, and my sister and I hopped on that bandwagon so fast. This recipe is simple and arguably better than any store-bought hummus. And you control the ingredients (I love this part!).

  • 2 large, ripe avocados
  • 2 cans of organic garbonzo beans, drained
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic (more or less depending on your taste)
    • *not photographed
  • 1 tsp of garlic salt (to taste)
  • splash of lemon juice
  • swirl of olive oil (I used grapeseed oil), adding more while blending until desired consistency
  • *optional: chopped cilantro



Serve this immediately with veggies. Some of our favories are carrots, celery, and sweet bell peppers. You can also supplement with crackers or wheat thins for a well-rounded meal replacement.


Because this is made with fresh avocado, it does not last well if kept overight. If feeding just one person cut the recipe in half!

This is a super simple and fast appetizer to throw together (and sometimes we even just eat it for lunch or dinner with a pile of veggies)! Let me know if you try it or another variation in the comments below!
