This avocado lime hummus is creamy, nutritious, flavorful, super simple to whip up and incredibly yummy!

So far I have made the classic Lebanese hummus and roasted beetroot hummus,  but avocado mixed with chickpeas takes hummus to new heights.

Only 8 ingredients, 2 minutes and a food processor… that’s all you need. Put all the ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth. Once it’s done, put it in a bowl, sprinkle with some paprika, drizzle with extra virgin olive and eat up!

You can usually find tahini in the ethnic section of your supermarket. I always have a jar available in the fridge to satisfy all my hummus cravings.

This recipe makes a medium bowl of avocado lime hummus, about 5 portions. If you are making it for a crowd, definitely double or triple it.

Serve it with tortilla chips, pita chips, whole wheat pita bread, crackers, vegetables or use it as a spread on sandwiches.

If you are a hummus lover, I have no doubt that you will enjoy this variation! Go ahead and give it a try!
