Hippie Moms Aren't Crazy

White Bean Avocado Hummus

This stuff even makes raw broccoli taste good! Boom.

As I’ve mentioned countless times, I’m a sucker for dips. They are SO easy to make and require little skill. I make a lot in advance for snacks and/or lunches on all week.

This smooth white bean avocado hummus is packed with so many nourishing qualities, it’s not even funny.

  • Beans: High in antioxidants, fiber, protein, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper and zinc.
  • Raw garlic: Eating garlic regularly is not only good for us; it has been linked to reducing or even helping to prevent four of the major causes of death worldwide, including heart disease, stroke, cancer and infections.” (Source)
  • Avocado: The only fruit that provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). Avocados are a naturally nutrient-dense food and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals. (Source)
  • Olive Oil: Real, high-quality extra virgin olive oil has well-researched anti-inflammatory compounds, antioxidants and numerous heart-healthy macronutrients. Extra virgin olive oil benefits include lowering rates of inflammation, heart disease, depression, dementia and obesity. (Source)
  • Parsley: The impressive health benefits of parsley come via its active ingredients, which include phenolic compounds, antioxidant flavonoids, essential oils like myristicin and apiol, and various nutrients like vitamins K, C and A. (Source)

My point: Eat and create real food for REAL health!! Okay enough of why you should be making and eating this stuff!! Let’s do this!

White Bean Avocado Hummus

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups white cannellini beans
  • 1/2 large avocado
  • 1 tbsps lemon zest (only from organic lemons)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Place the beans, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and parsley in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is coarsely chopped. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer the bean puree to a small g;ass bowl. Serve with veggies, cucumbers, carrots, broccoli, peppers, etc.

Double the recipe so you have extra for the week! I also love adding this to veggie filled wraps and pairing with my favorite Einkorn crackers by Jovial Foods too.

Are you dip crazy too? I think I may have to start a new community “Hippie Moms love dips”. Would you join me? 😉

Live Hippily…. and get dippin’!
