Hummus has to be one of my favourite foods! I mean, in addition to being super easy to make, it's so nice and light, creamy, tasty and plain old addictively good! As much as I'm into basic hummus it's also fun to mix in other flavours and since avocados have been on my mind lately it was only natural to try an an avocado hummus. This recipe is just as easy to make as plain hummus where you just throw all of the ingredients, with the addition of avocados, into the food processor and puree! It's hard to believe that hummus could get any creamier but the avocados make it so and the flavour it to die for! Get your pita chips ready for dipping because avocados take hummus to a whole new level!
It's so fun to dip into!
Just a few simple ingredients creates such an amazing thing!
What an amazing green colour!
Instead of just using it as a dip, spread it on a pita and top with some roasted veggies for a light, tasty and healthy meal!
