An all-green version of a classic hummus, this avocado & spinach hummus is extra creamy and addictive!  If you’ve still not gotten onto the superfood bandwagon, chickpeas are definitely a great start, they’re delicious and packed full of protein. Adding  superfoods to your hummus simply bumps it up a notch if you’re looking for something healthy, think of it as a guacamole-hummus concoction! Serve it up with rye breadsticks, wholewheat crackers, pita bread, carrot sticks, anything you want really and it makes a perfect dip. It’s ridiculously easy to make, rich in healthy fats and is basically a bowlful of goodness for you to snack on!

PREPARATION TIME: 5-10 minutes

INGREDIENTS 

  • 120g chickpeas  (half a store-bought can, drained)
  • 1/2 a soft, ripe avocado
  • Handful of baby spinach leaves

  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
