Guacamole teams up with hummus in this mouthwatering mashup of two delicious dips! Our nutritious avocado hummus recipe calls for clean ingredients like garbanzo beans, avocado, tahini, and a splash of lime juice. Minced garlic gives the dip a bold, aromatic kick, while extra virgin olive oil lends a smooth finish.

Buttery avocado pairs perfectly with nutty chickpeas, offering a host of health benefits. Aside from contributing to this recipe’s rich texture, avocados contain more potassium than bananas and are loaded with heart-healthy, cancer-fighting properties. Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, contain essential protein and dietary fiber. The paired superfoods make a killer healthy combo!

This no-effort dish asks you to add the ingredients to a blender or food processor and puree. Done! Dish up this recipe for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser at your next dinner party. Our avocado hummus also makes a guilt-free snack you can enjoy any time of day! Pair with these Easy Whole-Grain Pita Chips for an irresistibly scrumptious snack.
