Creamy Avocado Hummus

If you like hummus and like avocado, try this avocado hummus! I love pomegranate seeds especially garnishing with that beautiful color! I first tried it at a local burger joint and had to try it for myself! Feel free to play with the seasonings and lemon (if you prefer more or less).  My kids love hummus and it’s super nutritious!  If you’re kids don’t like to eat beans, let them try it as a spread.  Hummus on crackers or toast, even paired with chicken or veggies for dipping.  I also love this dip with endives!


1-15oz no salt added garbanzo beans and reserve liquid

3 tablespoons tahini

lemon, juiced

1 large clove garlic

2 small avocados (or 1 large)

1/3 teaspoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon olive oil

salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine lemon and tahini in food processor.
  2. Add beans, then avocado and cumin.
  3. Slowly add in about 3-4 tablespoons of the reserved liquid until appropriate consistency is achieved.  Blend well until creamy.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
