For all the paleo peeps out there who miss hummus (but not the beans) we have a treat for you.

Enter beanless avocado hummus.

Of course, this recipe is for anyone looking for a twist on the traditional hummus, and will be especially cherished by avocado lovers. We have double the avocado here, featuring the fresh version and a dash of AJK’s 100% unrefined avocado oil. Avocados are a rich source of healthy, anti-inflammatory monounsaturated fats, and are also high in anti-aging vitamin E and a host of minerals, so don’t feel guilty about dipping in for seconds … or thirds.Prep
