Avocado Hummus (Vegan recipe)

An Easy, Colorful and Delightful Holiday Appetizer

The colors of Avocado Hummus are perfect for a seasonal celebration! Hummus is an easy, go-to dip, so why not pair it with the great taste and texture offered by avocados?

Are you dashing through the snow? Even if you don’t have snow in your parts, this is the time of year when most everyone is rushing around, trying to get last minute shopping finished, and hitting the grocery stores to stock up on ingredients for cookies, parties and the big holiday meal.

Make one thing easy on yourself whether you’re planning a party, or you need to feed the gang gathered at your place: throw together Avocado Hummus and serve it up with toasted pita, crackers or veggies. It’s easy to whip up, it’s colorful, and tastes great! I love the idea of adding avocado to hummus!
