Creamy Avocado Hummus

Updated: Sep 27, 2018

Uhhh, excuse me…I'd like a homemade hummus….hold the tahini. Said… no one ever! (dot...dot...dot) Except this girl who was too lazy to go to the store but was craving some hummus for her cucumber! I mean let's face it, who really has that nutty delicious condiment just laying around anyway? I know...I know...tahini adds that unique warm nutty flavor to hummus but, I figure it can be substituted!


So away I went searching my fridge for something that would give me the moisture and creaminess of a tahini….and there it was…the left over Greek Yogurt from my Saucy Minx Dipping Sauce. I've never made hummus before so why not start off unique and use what I have around the house. Hummus is really just a puree of different vegetables together anyway, right? Et Voila, I played with my food and 10 minutes later (not even really) I had yummy fresh Hummus packed with extra protein and other healthy things from the Greek Yogurt!


This hummus recipe is SO easy and can take on any flavor profile your taste buds desire! If you have a blender or food processor this can be whipped up in minutes and clean-up is simple. John even said that it tasted better than traditional hummus *GASP!* …I think it was because I added a TON of garlic (more than I put in the recipe below…It was a vampires nightmare!)


Alright! Let's get cookin' and spend some thyme together ya'll! Per the usual I included the basic ingredients you need for this recipe, the ingredients I used, and directions to follow along. If you modified something, then skip that step or replace the step with your own ingredient!
