I have zero control when it comes to hummus. I also have zero control when it comes to avocado. Now imagine when I combine these two together and create clean avocado hummus….I’m lost for words now, just speechless.
Yes, you read this right, avocado hummus recipe.I make my own hummus all the time…sometimes it’s not even proper hummus just chickpeas with lemon, garlic and a bit of tahini all chucked in my processor and then casually eaten all in one go! Now before you get started on the fat content and all that jazz, STOP! This is no skinny recipe blog. I only share proper REAL food that tastes good, that you love and it loves you back because it gives you energy, makes you feel good and look good. Hummus is one of those as it is packed with good-for-you fats and plenty of nutrients. Of course you can't devour the whole tub or bowl, but you can enjoy it more than any shop bought version.
This clean avocado hummus recipe has no added oil, because simply there is no need for it. No special kitchen gadgets needed either, you only need a blender or food processor to get the consistency right. Ingredients are kept to a minimal, you will need canned chickpeas but make sure your can is clear of BPA’s and excess sodium or other ingredients (most supermarket versions are fine). Don’t forget to rinse it well before using. If you want it to be super healthy, buy good quality dry ones and soak overnight and the next day cook until soft ( approx.2 hours)
Now don’t get me started on avocados. I am addicted!!! I love avocado so much that I have it every….single….day. I love it mashed, I love it cut up over my salad, I love avocado sauce, I love chocolate mousse with avocado, you name it, I love it all!
Let me list below just a few reasons why you should eat avocados and not be worried about their fat content:
- Full of potassium, fiber, magnesium, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin E
- Lower cholesterol
- Improved Digestion
- Increased Energy
- Clearer Skin
- Improves blood sugar levels
