Avocado is one of my favorite foods, and finding new ways to eat it always makes me happy! I’ve really been into hummus lately so I thought why not combine 2 of my favorite things and make an awesome Avocado Cilantro Quick Hummus Recipe? It’s got a great flavor; it is really fresh and only takes about 5 minutes to make!
1 can chickpeas (drained)
2 avocados from Mexico
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
3 Tbsp Tahini
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tsp garlic
First, open and drain your chickpeas and add them to a blender (or food processor). Next, cut open the avocados and remove the seed. Scoop out the avocado flesh and add in to the chickpeas in the blender. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender.
Blend until smooth. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
That’s it! Easy, right? Now all you have to do is grab some dippers. You can eat it with carrots, celery, red peppers, or broccoli. It goes great on pita chips, pretzel thins, and tortilla chips. We like it on bagels and sandwiches too. Since we are talking about all those vegetables, did you know that an avocado is a fruit? It is actually a single seeded berry. How is that for a bit of trivia?
This Avocado Cilantro Quick Hummus Recipe is so easy to make and is a great nutritious snack choice without all the bad fats and sugars of other snacks! Because avocados come from plants, the fat contained within them is actually considered oil. Avocados have good fats, 2 grams of fiber and 0 grams of sugar per 1 oz. serving. As a nutrient-dense fruit, avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamin, minerals, and phytonutrients to your diet.
