On Monday I shared a quick and easy homemade tahini recipe, so today I’m sharing this avocado hummus, which is the perfect first thing for you to make with your homemade tahini. I also made this hummus in my BlendTec and it was done in just minutes, for the perfect quick and easy and healthy snack. (Scroll to the bottom of the post to enter to win your own Blendtec!)
The avocado flavor is subtle, but it adds just a little extra creamy goodness. And I just love avocados and hummus so I knew I would love this recipe. I started with my traditional hummus as a base, as well as looking at the avocado hummus recipe on cooking classy, and kind of combining the two.
I love dipping pretzels or pita chips into my hummus, but fresh veggies are great too and make the snack even healthier.
