Avocado Hummus – Nothing beats a real Guacamole, but this ultra creamy avocado dip is a great alternative for something different! Excellent option when avocados are obscenely expensive to make less go further!
It’s quicker to make and just as delicious in its own right, made with avocados, chickpeas OR yoghurt, lemon, coriander/cilantro, garlic and olive oil. Crack open a beer – snack time is here!
Process avocado, chickpeas, tahini, lime juice, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, and 1 cup cilantro in a food processor until smooth, about 1 minute. With the motor running, stream in 2 Tbsp. oil, then continue to process until hummus is very light and creamy, about 1 minute longer. Taste and season with salt, if needed.
Transfer hummus to a shallow bowl. Top with pepitas and cilantro and drizzle with more oil.
Do Ahead: Hummus can be made 4 days ahead. Transfer to an airtight container, cover surface with plastic, and chill.
How would you rate Herby Avocado Hummus?
I made this today and it is so good! I did add one fresh seeded jalapeno and a little grated lime rind for a little extra bite, but I will definitely make this again!
Such a great recipe! Made it for my family and everyone loved it so much. I especially loved the extra flavour and crunch the toasted pumpkin seeds on top added! :)

How to make avocado hummus without tahini
First gather all the ingredients. I buy cooked chickpeas but if you prefer cooking them yourself, then go ahead. I am not sure how much dried chickpeas you will need though. They are processed with olive oil in a food processor.
Then add avocado chunks, lemon juice, pressed garlic, salt, pepper, cumin and pulse again until smooth.
Give it a taste and add more seasoning/oil/lemon juice, if you like.
My suggestion: Serve it as a part of a Cheese Board altogether with Roasted Beet Hummus!
Olive oil – to make this tahini-free avocado hummus I highly recommend using extra virgin olive oil. It is the best one on the market and the healthiest one as well as it is cold-pressed.
Avocado – Make sure to use ripe avocado. It should be soft to touch and when you cut it, the knife should go easily through. The texture would be similar to the texture of a ripe banana (There is a simple trick to determine whether an avocado is ripe inside).
Lemon juice – I always use juice from a fresh lemon to achieve the best flavors and I recommend you do the same. The amount you use may vary though. This will depend on your taste.
Salt, pepper and cumin – I tend to add a pinch of each, mix and taste and add more if needed.
Garlic – One garlic clove is usually enough. If you don’t like garlic, you can omit it completely. I don’t recommend using garlic powder.
What snacks to eat with hummus?
- Pita bread
- Veggies – carrots, celery, bell peppers, …
- Fruits – apples are my favorite. They go so well with all sorts of sweet or savory dips.
Tips for making avocado hummus
- If you have tahini on hand, feel free to add a little to your hummus.
- This recipe can be easily adjusted to your liking – you can add more/less garlic (or omit it completely), olive oil, seasoning, ….
- Cumin is also completely optional here. I don’t use it when I don’t have it on hand.
- Store in a sealed jar or air-tight container in the fridge.
- Enjoy as a spread or dip!
- I love this on a few slices of toasted bread or French baguette. Top it with salmon and arugula and you have a tasty breakfast ready.
