What to eat with hummus
This avocado hummus is a delicious snack on its own or as an accompaniment to so many recipes! If you are looking to make the most of this hummus recipe, here are a few ways to serve this dish:
- Serve hummus as a dip with veggies (cucumbers, carrots, celery, etc.)
- Serve as a dip with pita chips, crackers and naan crisps

To store any leftover hummus, transfer it to an airtight container. I suggest mason jars to keep the avocado in this hummus fresh longer.
When storing, you can store with the antipasto or sun-dried tomatoes that you’ve added on top or add them to the top when ready to enjoy. Squeeze some extra lemon juice on top or cover the hummus with plastic wrap before closing the container to keep the avocado from browning.
After storing, your hummus will last in the fridge for up to one week! It may lose its vibrant colour from the oxidizing avocado but it is still okay to eat for the week.
Can you freeze avocado hummus?
Yes! You can definitely freeze the avocado hummus for later. To freeze, transfer Avocado Hummus to an airtight container. Leave some room at the top so it has room to expand over time. I recommend storing them in multiple mason jars like I have pictured, rather than one large container. Before freezing, layer a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the avocado hummus and freeze for up to 3 months.
If freezing, don't top the hummus with the antipasto or sundried tomatoes.
When ready to enjoy, place the avocado hummus into the fridge to thaw overnight. If it hasn't thawed fully, wait until it has thawed completely. Once it has thawed completely, top with desired toppings then serve and enjoy!
