How to make a healthy avocado and chickpea hummus (video)

Print this recipe
Hummus is one of my favorite things to eat. I can eat a whole pint in one sitting all to myself. In the recipe below, we do a bit of a twist on traditional hummus by adding avocado instead of tahini. Avocados are loaded with potassium, monounsaturated fats and fiber and have 17 percent of your daily dose of vitamin C.
I love making a double batch of this recipe and keeping it in the fridge to eat throughout the week. I'm always using whatever vegetables I have on hand — carrots, celery or zucchini, the list goes on! — to scoop up all that goodness. Just put all the ingredients in a food processor, and in no time you'll have a healthy snack that you'll keep running back to the fridge for.
