Homemade Avocado Hummus

By: Snap Fitness

It’s amazing how adding one simple ingredient to a recipe can take it to a whole new level. In this recipe, we’ve taken traditional chickpea hummus and added an avocado to the ingredient list. What comes from the combination is a creamy texture, you’ve never imagined possible. It will be a new snack addiction.

 

This dip is very versatile and tastes great with just about anything. Use it as a sandwich spread instead of mayonnaise. The beans in this recipe actually make this dip a protein packed  option that's pretty filling for a snack or even a light meal.

 

Grab those avocados and let’s dip!

 

Ingredients:

1 can garbanzo beans drained and rinsed (chickpeas)

2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

2 Tbsp olive oil

½ tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

1. Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor
