  9. Beth

    This looks fantastic! Does anybody know if this keeps well in the fridge? I’m wondering if it will turn an icky brown color because of the avacado?

    • Gaby

      Hi Beth, It should keep well in the fridge for a few days! The lemon juice will help keep its color 🙂

    I made this last night for my housewarming! Yuuuummmmy yum yum! It was so creamy and avocado-ey, and the cilantro gave it such a bright flavor. I stuck they leftover in the fridge to take it to work today and it stayed the same color too. 🙂 Oh this would be so good in a sandwich too…

    There’s a lot of snacking that goes on here…the guys come in from working on our avocado ranch and sit down to talk over the next project…and food has to be available. Guacamole is often the snack of choice, but we go through huge quantities of hummus as well. What a great idea to combine the two! I’ll feature your post on our Facebook page today, Gaby. Thank you!

    Two of my favorite things in one! I love this so much!!

  19. Asma

    I just made this cause I thought its creative and useful,, however, it definitely needed a boost of flavor, so I added 2 garlic cloves, and probably juice of two lemons and more salt and pepper. turned out lovely! thanks for the inspiration gabby 🙂

    Hi Gaby.

    The ingredients list calls for 1/2 cup avocado oil, the instructions olive oil. Can I use either? Please clarify. Also, where do I get a Peruvian avocado? Will a Mexican one work?

    Thanks for all you do! You’re awesome!!


    • Gaby

      Hey Rick!! Just update the recipe so it’s all easy to follow now 🙂 xx

    I had some very ripe avocados and was looking for a new way to use them. Luckily I had all of the ingredients in my fridge and just whipped this up. It was soooooo delicious!! Didn’t last long…

    I am obsessed with this hummus. We make it weekly now and it never disappoints. What else can you say that about??? Thanks Gaby!

    Very nice! Took as appetizer for family who doesn’t eat onions or garlic, which humus recipes usually call. Served with veggies and a few tostado chips. Made it according to recipe and next time I will add more cilantro, salt/pepper and spices. I also took the outer skin off the garbanzo beans because it makes it creamier (optional). Enjoy!
