Justine Schofield’s avocado hummus dip recipe is a healthy crowd pleaser


Vegan, satisfying and full of good fats, avocado takes hummus to the next level.  

Justine Schofield has combined two classics to create a deliciously fresh and healthy dip perfect for your next platter.

Avocado and chickpeas are the perfect plant-based combination providing you with good fats, protein and fibre.

Good fats found in Delcado avocados also help you to absorb the vitamin E and K in chickpeas. Whip it up in just 10 minutes and serve with toasted pita or carrots for a low carb option.
