Avocado Pomegranate Hummus

Avocado Pomegranate Hummus

If I could live off of one food for the rest of my life…hands down it would be avocados.  Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks…heck, even dessert (hello chocolate avocado mousse), I could have them for every meal.

They are chock full of vitamins, minerals, and omega 3 fatty acids, not to mention they are absolutely delicious!  

I’ve combined them with chickpeas, which are a MUST for hummus, I’ve also added lime juice, cilantro, garlic, and the best part is the pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top.  YUMMMM!!!  

Please don’t skip the pomegranate if you make this, the juicy sweetness that it gives each bite is phenomenal.  Seriously.  Hope you decide to try it!
