Avocado Hummus

Come on spring!  I know you're out there!  I am doing everything in my power to convince Mother Nature that it is time for spring.  I have cooked with fresh herbs, ordered my copper mugs for my summer favorite, the moscow mule, and even gone so far to put flowers on my dinner table and we are getting NOTHIN!

I have a woken with grand ideas of a beautful sunny day, spent time outside trying to convince myself it isn't freezing when in all reality, it is not freezing....it is 42 degrees and drizzling rain.

I can't handle it anymore!  I need sunlight!  I need spring!  I need vitamin D!!!

One of my attempts to convey this burning need inside of my to Mother Nature was to make a light and fresh appetizer....you know....something that would be perfect with a margarita...sitting by a pool....warm! 

Avocado Hummus

Add the following to your food processor:
1 can of white beans, drained and rinsed
1 avocado, cubed
juice from 1/2 of a lime
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of olive oil (a lower fat option: substitute oil for juice from the beans)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
 
Blend until smooth.... EASY AS THAT!
Pin It!
