This avocado keto hummus is so smooth and creamy, and has the perfect texture of a traditional hummus. You would never know that you were eating zucchini and not chick peas. Low carb hummus for the win!
Hummus has been one of my favorite appetizers, but chickpeas are relatively high in carbs. Back in the day I could easily take down a whole container of hummus and a package of crispy rice crackers single-handedly. Who am I kidding? I still could. But these days I've traded in the high carb version for a super tasty keto friendly hummus instead.
In this recipe, I use zucchini in place of chickpeas to make a delicious low carb version. The avocado was just a no-brainer, because let's face it, avocado just makes everything better.
