Creamy Avocado Hummus

Yields: about 2 cups Prep Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 15 minutes

For those not sold completely on hummus or guacamole, this is a great dip that is mild in flavor, yet strong in nutrition. Avocados add potassium and healthy fats, while chickpeas add protein, fiber, folate and iron. Serve with vegetables, pita chips or even use as a spread on a sandwich.


1 c. cooked or canned garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained

1/2 c. cream cheese

1 medium avocado

1 T. tahini (optional, adds extra calcium)

2 t. olive oil

1/2 t. lemon juice

1/2 t. salt


1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until well combined.

2. Store in an airtight container for 1-2 days.

This is an awesome dip for a party or even for the fmaily (especially kids) on any day of the week. We've spread it on a wrap, as a spread for a quesadilla and of course, simply with pita chips. It is a super nutritious dip, with chickpeas and avocado, plus a little cream cheese rounds it out for a creamy touch.
