What Happens When You Mix Avocado and Hummus Together?

‘hummous, hommos, humos, hommus and hoummos’

There are loads of ways of pronouncing it – I know! But to say that I am obsessed is an understatement!  I eat them in different ways and always serve it as a dip to anyone who comes over! 

So a little history

I’m just going to call it Hummus – is a Levantine and Egyptian food dip, of mashed chick peas blended with olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic. It is popular throughout the Middle East (including Turkey), North Africa (including Morocco), and in Middle Eastern cuisine around the globe. 



I love using crackers for the dip, it gives that crunch a snack is supposed to give and they’re pretty healthy, in my opinion.

Carrots are a particularly good source of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants.

& they actually taste good!

This is my special creation! Avocado and Hummus!!! A weird but great combination! I always have
avocado in my fridge and I always have hummus in my fridge so I though why not mix them together and the final result blew me away. It’s a perfect combination of the light sweetness you get from the avocado and the heavy sourness you get from the hummus. Works well with carrots and crackers! You could also make a guacamole using onions and other ingredients (click here to see guacamole recipe in my other post)

So to answer the question…

What Happens When You Mix Avocado and Hummus Together?

A great mix of happiness and taste. That’s is it!




Effort level: EASY

2 cups creamed coconut (you can probably also use coconut butter)

2 cups fresh blueberries (frozen, thawed might work too)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract

Add all ingredients in a food processor until the mix is smooth. Pour the mixture in a a deep tray or pan lined with parchment paper. Leave some parchment paper to stick out the sides. After pouring the the mixture and flattened with a spatula, place the mixture in the freezer to firm up for a few hours.
