Avocado Hummus (Whole 30 Recipe)

A bowl of paleo vegan avocado hummus and crackers. There are avocado cubes and cilantro on top.
Made without chickpeas, this creamy Paleo Avocado Hummus recipe is not only Whole30, Keto-friendly, and Vegan, but also super easy to make!

If you are a big snacker like I am, you definitely need to give this delicious paleo avocado hummus a try.  It is the perfect substitute for the traditional hummus especially if you are doing Whole30 this January.

 

One of my favorite ways to snack is to prepare lots of vegetables, either roasted, steamed or raw, and have dips handy to pair with. A couple of my other favorites:

  1. Ginger Beet Hummus Recipe (Vegan, Gluten-Free)
  2. Pumpkin Pie Hummus

Besides having the creamy and luscious texture, this avocado hummus is totally a Paleo Snacking game changer.

Loaded with veggie and healthy fats, this dip will quickly become a healthy replacement for your mid-day potato chip craving.

 

What makes this recipe a Paleo Avocado Hummus?

First of all, why is Paleo Diet so popular lately? Second, is it good for you? And how can you eat like a caveman (Paleo)?

In a nutshell, Paleo Diet is designed to resemble human hunter-gatherer ancestors (I think “caveman” sounds cooler) ate thousands of years ago.

You are allowed to consume meat, seafood, egg, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, healthy fats, etc. while avoiding processed food such as legume, dairy, grains, artificial sweeteners (Read more about Paleo Diet Here).

However, there is no “right” way or one-size-fit-all way when it comes to diet. That’s why I don’t follow or promote any strict diets.

Living a healthy lifestyle is so much more than just what you eat. I have simple guidelines to help myself develop an eating habit that makes ME feel good.

For example, I meal prep lots of whole foods: vegetables, sweet potatoes, quality meat on the weekend. So I can quickly assemble healthy and wholesome lunch or dinner instead of eating out or getting hangry and reach out for junk snacks.

Anyway..

I went off track a little bit there. Back to WHAT makes this avocado hummus Paleo:

There is no Chickpea! I used steamed cauliflower instead. It creates a lighter and creamier texture. 

Hea-Ven.

Moreover, just like other hummus recipes, this version is also Vegan-Friendly.

 

How to make Paleo Avocado Hummus

As much as I love chickpeas (I love some Pesto with chickpea Pasta and fluffy pancakes made with almond and chickpea flour), it does make me bloated sometimes.

And of course, chickpeas are not considered paleo.

In the spirit of the whole30 January, I found the perfect replacement for chickpeas in this paleo and vegan hummus recipe. Scroll down to check out the full ingredient list.

Instead of chickpeas, I used steamed cauliflower instead.

If you are skeptical, trust me, it doesn’t taste like cauliflower at all. This is why steamed cauliflower is one of my staples when it comes to healthify-ing recipes. I use it in smoothies to sneak in extra veggies, and make cauliflower gnocchi like the one Trader Joe’s has.

 

This Paleo Avocado Hummus recipe is the perfect healthy snack when the munchies strike. If you are following Vegan, Keto or Whole30 diets, this recipe is a MUST to add to your appetizer list.
